Friday Trade Review and Big Mouth Stocks 10/23/2009

The big mouth stock was a winner but very messy. I was able to take a peek at the market in the afternoon and made one fast trade. It would be great if easy time I looked at the market for 5 minutes - I would make a $100.

Thursday Big Mouth Stocks 10/22/2009



Each of them were not easy, but two out of three you should have made good money on. I did not trade today in fact I hardly had time to watch the market at all.

WTF - how more stupid could I have gotten or lucky??? 10/21/2009

This is beyond stupid. I bought a stock. Double up on it on the next up tick. Thought I sold it but doubled up again. I forgot about it thinking I was flat. Checked on it in the last hour of trading and saw another setup and bought more stock still not knowing I was really long from before. Finally dawns on me, I am way too long this stock. In a panic to sell, I buy 300 more shares. Finally I get out down only $59. At one point, I was down over $600 without knowing it and if I held on to the end of the day, I would have been down close to $3000. Talk about lucky - talk about being stupid. I am frustrated with the way I need to enter my web based IB orders and I paid a price for that today. Insane.

Tuesday Big Mouth Stocks and Trade Review 10/20/2009

Above was the big mouth stock of the day and I traded it poorly. I also did something I can't remember ever doing before. I traded a little around the open and then right after lunch. I logged into my account near the close to find I was long some stock - WTF? I forgot to cancel my stop loss orders on my earlier trades and they got filled. Thank god no major damage was done and one nearly ended up as a good trade but still dumb - so very dumb.

The numbers are not big but I have convinced myself again I think I know what I am doing. I was able to advantage of the Big Mouth Stocks on Monday and Tuesday this week. Now that I am back to trading (but on a very limited time table), I need to increase my size and aggressiveness back to the levels I have done in the past. I am hoping that i spend little time in front of the screen compared to the past but I am taking better trades i think because of it. My oldest enemy I have has really rise his head again - NOT SITTING ON MY HANDS. This week and last could have been great weeks if I only gave trades to work 10 to 15minutes to work instead of my 5 to 10 minutes.
-
It is just great to be back to my life again - working, trading, racket ball, doing things around the house, enjoying my big ass new TV(I nearly cry during every football game now) and a course being with my honey.

What happened to my daughter sumer was a nightmare but it has sown the seeds for a lot of good to come out of it. For one thing, I have never had this close of a relationship with her until now because of a lot of stupid events of life. She is a special kid and very special to me. Over the years, we have meant many people together. It is funny - most people remember me but no one ever forgets meeting her. That says a lot.

Tuesday 10/13/2009

The big Mouth Stocks on Monday thru Wednesday were like shooting fish in a barrel. I made okay money this week so far with the little time I have had with the markets. I will post my trade review tomorrow. Life is a little busy this week.

Monday Trade Review and Big Mouth Stocks 10/12/2009

Both Big Mouth stocks would have worked out today. I was able to trade one of them for a good gain - too bad I only had a few shares.

Stimulus plan II - Denarii Style

After spending an extra $4000 this summer because of my daughter fall, I spent $3000 on a big ass HD TV and stand. My wife bought $4700 in furniture this weekend where her sister came along and bought $3500 herself. Later this month I am buying a new $1500 PC because one of my trading PCs died on me. And next month I will be spending about $2000 on my car for needed repairs and maintenance and I will be taking a week long trip to Florida for Thanksgiving.

Friday Big Mouth Stcoks 10/9/2009


Both of these were crap. It is hard to play Big Mouth Stocks that are really big cap stocks unless something like NUE is up 4% because of the big mouth and all the other steel stocks are down. Since the first of the Month, the big mouth stocks have sucked big time.
-
I am more hopefully with Monday picks being NVLS and WCRX. He will see. No trades for me on Friday.

Thursday Big Mouth Stocks - 10/8/2009

The open tick was the high. A bit of a ride for this one but you could have taken 50 cents out sitting on your hands.

Wednesday Trade Reviw and Big Mouth Stocks - 10/7/2009


Both of these big mouth stocks can be wild and they were. Sometimes you got to watch how the market comes out of the gate and wait to hit your mark with these.

Thursday Trade Review and Big Mouth Stocks 10/1/2009


The two charts are the big mouth stocks from today. The second chart sucked and was a low volume entry that did not work. I first one I wanted to cry. Usually Big Mouth stocks that pop in after hours but open lower the next day make for the best big mouth trades. I could not really watch the open but I thought what the hell and put in an order to sell NVDA at 15 even above 10 minutes before the open. I checked about 10 minutes after the open and found I missed a great trade by 2 cents. The open was 14.96 and the high tick was 14.98 - damn. By the time I looked at it, I thought the opportunity was gone. It turned into a big winner with out me.

Wednesday Trade Review and Big Mouth Stock 9/30/2009

The big mouth stock above was okay with a nice 2% gain. I tried trading the decline in the last hour and again I had my stop too close. You can't make money with out risking money.

Tuesday Trade Review 9/29/2009

Just a goofy trade. I thought stocks would decline later in the day and I entered a short on X in the middle of the day. I picked a two hour bottom and was happy to get out with a small profit.
