Chart Porn 6/25/2012 - another one got away edition B#$% S*&%

The details are on the chart.  If I only had the balls to wait it out just a few more seconds. I never had more than a $100 gain or loss for those 6 minutes. I had a $300 loss with a target of $500 plus. oh crap.

Did not do much trading at all this week.  Did something I had not done in a long while and that was sell call options against one of my long term positions.  We will see how that turns out.  I saw a lot of setups this week but was really lacking in guts to take trades.

Chart Porn - 06/05/2012

My first good trade in about two weeks. Saying I did a lot of things wrong. I should have entered with two units based on the setup and how the market was moving. The first unit I should have kept the tight stop I used or maybe just take 20 cents. The second unit I should have had a trailing stop. It has been a while since I managed a 2 unit trade successfully.
Anyway it was a good trade and I feel like I got a monkey off my back.
