Tired and cranky 12/21/2009

I made 4 trades today. Three of them I honored my stops. All three of those got stopped out. My trade forth trade was going short Feb Gold around 1115. It stayed there for too long going no where so I got out (5 minutes or so). Twenty minutes later Gold was 10 dollars lower and over the course of another 2 hours - fell $10 more. So I lost $250 on 3 trades. Made $50 on one trade and left $2000 on the table. My stupidity continues.
-
I may start using very strong Eggnog on my morning cereal.
-
I am too tired and cranky to post charts. The big mouth stocks were PCS (you could have made a little) and ONNN (flat).

Confused and hurt 12/21/2009

My trading sucks right now big time. Since Thanksgiving I have tried to trade with bigger size and I do not know if that has anything to do with my over all trades. I have been trying to be less concerned about my losses and got back into a mode I was years ago where I had bigger gains and bigger loses but on whole I made money.
-
I am a very emotional person. Recent events in my life have thrown a monkey wrench into how I viewed my overall life. I know events that happened or not happened 20 to 50 years ago have little meaning on today but it messes with who I am.
-
I grew up in a super dysfunctional family. My dad has had a very successful career in business but nearly every waking hour I saw him while growing up - he was very drunk. He totaled 3 cars and somehow walked away from them. My mother has always been strange. She functions in society but it is clear she is mentally ill. I always thought she was strange but her illness did not matter until 10 to 15 years ago or so I thought. During the last few years, mainly the last 6 months, a lot of the stories I was told over the years on events that happened did not happened the way I thought. Her illness is much worse and started at a much younger age – even before I was born.
-
Many of the stories where told to protect me in some way - others to put my father down - others to for my mother needs to attack people that do not do everything she wants them to.
-
It has left me with a strange feeling - one that I feel a foundation of events have been changed. I feel at some level my life or what I thought was - is built on a lie.
-
Does it really change anything today? NO. I just really give me a weird uneasy feeling about who I am and why I became the person I did. I have a great partner in life. I have had a great career. My kid is wonderful. So I wish I could figure out why it eats at me.
-
I am not blaming this for my trading but this has really messed with my mind.

Wednesday and Friday Trading Results 12/19/2009

A lot of notes on the chart above showing my trades on Wednesday in JOYG. I had the right idea and right direction but my entries were bad and I paid the price. I also low ticked an entry in the YM futures that hurt too when I did not wait for the trade signal before entering the trade.
-
I also got hurt shorting the Big Mouth Stock CHK on Friday. My trading is really poor lately.

The Rest of the Weeks Big Mouth Stocks 12/19/2009

Friday 12/18/2009
Thursday 12/17/2009

Wednesday 12/16/2009
The Big Mouth Stocks for the most part have sucked this Month. GOOG on Wednesday worked out okay for a big cap stock that is high priced. I did not play and never do play the higher priced stocks.
-
Thursday showed a mixed bag. BBY would be a break even. HXL was great and could have made your week. PCP could have been a winner if held long enough.
-
Friday - both CHK and RRC. Previously CHK had been a very good big mouth stock to play. Not this time and I took a major loss on it Friday morning.

Thursday Big Mouth Stocks 12/10/2009


One okay the other was great.
-
The day was so busy, I looked at the market at 8:15 am EST and did not look at it again until 3:40 pm EST - sad, so sad.

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

Ughhhh - made 56 cents today.



All my trades are on the charts above. Another day of getting beaten up early so that I become too much of a wimp to make money the rest of the trading day when I finally nail a trade or two.

Wednesday Big Mouth Stock 12/9/2009

Worked out nice but I did not play it. Tomorrow's big mouth stocks are NRGY and HON. Watch out on HON because of the low volume.

Someone get a gun to place in my mouth.... 12/07/2009


Both of these were the big mouth stocks for the day. Both I decided to be aggressive with. Both I had my ladder orders to short the stock hoping for a nice pop on the open. I got some filled on GSM but missed by 3 cents on PCL. Again as so many times have happened before - my little brain could not handle a surprise - not enough shares to fill the short orders.
-
I did not completely screw it up but I left a ton on the table and did not chase PCL like I should have.
-
The numbers:
Stocks: gross +205 net +193 shares 2400
Stock Futures: none

Tonights big mouth stocks are ZION and M.

End of the Week Review 12/04/2009

I did not trade on Thursday or Friday. Had little to no time to look at the markets except during the jobs report on Friday Morning. I was really pissed at myself that I could not type fast enough to get orders in. I wanted to short Feb Gold above 1205 and the EURO above 1.5030. Big F-ing Pisser because it could have made my month or year if I increased my size. Too many times when things get crazy - I still try to use some limits to prevent from getting hurt too badly. Instead my brain should go into another mode of just do it, hit things with market orders and worry about that other crap later.
-
Bonus comment - the big mouth stocks on Monday are PCL and GSM - be careful with GSM because of the lack of volume.

Thursday Big Mouth Stocks 12/03/2009


Not a lot here. They have been going through a sucking phase again.

Wednesday trade Review - Ouch again - 12/02/2009



After screwing up royally on my JCG trades, I did not have the guts to be as aggressive as I should have been to make money. I was late in my X trade - had no guts to hold the RIMM trade and chickened out of AMZN at the last second. If I played out the 3 trades above - i would have easily made over $500 if out a $1000 instead of losing over $550.
-
I will post the totals tonight - got to run. I do feel better that i am taking greater risk now instead of pussy footing around.

Wednesday Big Mouth Stocks 12/02/2009

They sucked. I have list on JCG chart a bunch of my trades - all losers.
