Blog Status

I have not given up on my blog but life has been crazy. A lot of work, a wonderful vacation with my other half in Charleston SC and a scary skin infection where I thought my nose was going to fall off.

I do not know when I will post or what I will post.

Basically they sucked this week just like last week. The only difference is this week there was a lot of reversal plays to play.
-
The Big Mouth Stocks totally sucked this month like no other Month since I had been tracking them.

Last Weeks Results - bleeding continues 11/07/2010

Above was my major loss of the week. Too many times, when I get into a position, I get out too fast. So I thought put the order in and walk away. Two mistakes, I did not know I was going to get slipped 10 cents on a slow moving stock and I did not place a stop. A super stupid mistake.
-
I came back to see I was down big - a lot bigger than I normally would allow on this type of stock. It was an amazing fast move. Stupid - just plain stupid.
-
So on Thursday I went back to getting out of positions too fast. Both of my stock futures trades on Thursday would have been big winners only if I sat on my hands and respected my stops. Stupid - just plain stupid.

This was a super sucky week for them. One of the worse in many months. Next to impossible to make money even if you played them as reversal candidates because of how they reversed.

Friday Big Mouth Stock 10/29/2010

One of those pain in the ass but money maker type of trade that takes balls to pull off correctly.

Thursday Big Mouth Stocks 10/28/2010




AEM will stick in my gut for a long time. My normal trading plan is to add to the run but I did not. I have been hearing too much about not adding to losers. I got out with a small loss but then I allowed that to prevent me from doing the next trade which was a big winner - Ouch.

Wednesday Big Mouth Stocks 10/27/2010




Two out of Three were pretty good today.

Tuesday Big Mouth Stocks 10/26/2010


As my mother would say - stay away from Candies - they rot your teeth.

Monday Big Mouth Stock 10/25/2010

An insane move but if you hit it near the open - you could have made 3-6% on the downside.

This Weeks Results 10/24/2010

Thursday: And they sucked. Monday I was too pumped up on the open and made a trade I normally never made. The funny thing is if I did not move my stop so close - it would have worked. I got stopped and was pissed and then in seconds made a mindless trade chasing crude short - second big mistake. By the time , i took a real trade - my head was so screwed up - I chickened out soon after getting in and that one would have worked. So if I would have allowed 1 and 3 to work and not taken 2 because I was pissed at 1. It would have been a great day.
-
This stupid mind set stayed with me on Tuesday when again I got out of a trade for no reason only to see it move $2000 with out me.
-
It could have been a great week but it really sucked because I am trading like a little child now.

The stupid trade of the week - watching the wrong picture - 10/16/2010


Lots of notes on the charts - hope it makes sense. It is like a knife in my gut looking at these charts. It is bad enough that I spend too many time looking at 1 minute charts. Some of my chat friends scream at me to look at 5 minute charts or use 5 minute charts as a stop but above my eyes got glued on to a 89 tick chart. Sometimes they are good for setting stops and hitting targets.
-
This above is my problem. My brain is wired that it is success or failure in under 5 minutes on a trade and I prove over and over if I give a trade 10 minutes or more - my successes will pay for my failures a couple of times over.
-
If I do not solve this - I will never make good money out of trading. It has become that simple.
-
I need to place a trade and as soon as iti s filled - double check my stop and good make a cup of coffee and take a piss. That should kill just enough time to let the trade work if it is going too.

This Weeks Results

I wimped out of too many trades this week. Just hitting on one would have made me happy. Lunch money for the week - net +86. I am doing a weekly summary instead posting each day. I want to train myself to focus on trading not the dollars and cents.
