Monday Mental Illness Day 11/30/2009


I was frustrated about too many things today. I wanted to trade more aggressively even if it cost me a little money and boy did it ever. It was been a long time since I just really screwed things up with out waiting for good setups and at times a little too big in size. All the details are on the charts. No Big Mouth Stocks today.

Something completely different

It has been 135 days since the event. I still cry thinking about it. So many people have asked me about my daughter's health today it felt a little unreal. Here is a picture of the two of us about 4 weeks ago when I visited her in Ithaca.
-
I really do not know what I would have done if I lost her. Thank God.

Very frustrating on the big mouth stocks. I had orders in and just missed on both.

Wednesday Trade Review 11/11/2009

Today was crazy for me. I just should remember I can not trade when the wife is at home period. I also was waiting for my daughter to show up to pick up the unneeded furniture after the wife bought a bunch of new stuff.
-
I made a couple of dollars on the ABT short - see post below. I tried going short Gold after it broke the morning low and got hurt. I thought to then buy the break out and it failed too. Here I kept a closed enough stop were I covered my commissions. After that trade with all the other crap going on - it was a lost day and I was never able to get back into the black.

Monday Trade Review - a good day that could have been great 11/09/2009


I know. I know. I know. One trade has nothing to do with another or should not but I had gone long the EURO last night on the break out over 1.49 but the trade went no where and I got out. If I only went to bed and put a stop in under 1.49 I would have woken up very happy and up about $500.
-
If I was up on the EURO, it would have put me in a more aggressive or gutsy state of mind. I tried with the Big Mouth Stocks and got no where. I has going to short Gold but chicken out and maybe up $500 I would have had the guts to. Then there was the RIMM trade. A very good trade buying the break above 59.50. I got slipped 7 cents which that made me fell a little weaker on top of not being up big on the EURO trade. I peeled part after a 20 cents gain and the rest on a 45 cent gain leaving over 50 cents on the table.
-
You hit big on your first trade which gives you the back bone to keep on hitting and get the snow rolling. I made okay money today but I should have made 5 times more.

Monday Big Mouth Stocks 11/09/2009




Just a bunch of junk here. Usually this is a good time of year for the Big Mouth stocks. They have been next to impossible for the last week to make money off of and another junk DUF is for tomorrow.

Thursday Big Mouth Stocks and Trade Review 11/5/2009


These are the two big mouth stocks from today. Both did not net much. I had no access to charts that were displaying correctly so I decide to trade IMGN just using Level II. That was weird and I made a couple of dollars. I could have made more if I had the guts to go all in.

Wednesday Big Mouth Stock and Trade Review 11/04/2009

The big mouth stock had one moment of glory. I traded a lot today mainly because I forgot it was Fed day. None of my trades I am proud of or worth charting. A lot of them I had a 30 cents with a 20 cent trailing I would get stopped out with a 10 cent gain. I need to peel more.

Monday Big Mouth Stocks 11/03/2009


Above are the Big Mouth Stocks - both were great if you played them correctly. I had the right plan for both but failed in the execution of each. I think IB was at fault on my CHK order. My sell stop just was not executed above 25.10 when it traded up there.
