Some random winning breakouts

2011-11-08T20:00:44-05:00November 8, 2011|

If you are interested in looking...still working on my breakouts after 10 am.  Today was a textbook day for this as the first 1/2 hour failed to produce long plays in most.  Notice how these breakouts can be fast and volatile.  I actually prefer the slower moving ones (look at [...]

Some random loosing breakouts

2011-11-07T20:07:49-05:00November 7, 2011|

While I like to focus on the positives :) , it's vastly more important to look at the moves that don't work.  Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason.  These 2 puzzled me today as they didn't move in line with the rest of the nasdaq group.  They aren't on [...]

Down then up Nasdaq today…

2011-11-07T19:57:13-05:00November 7, 2011|

This was a really interesting day in the markets.  We started out looking long for the 1st half hour, and then the bottom fell of the main reasons why I don't trade before 10 am typically.  I've seen this move happen way too many times to let it suck [...]

MA Crossover Failures For Thur Nov 3

2011-11-03T19:12:49-04:00November 3, 2011|

I've been playing around with adding 2 moving averages to create a crossover buy or sell point.  This is by no means a new idea, but something that varies from person to person since you can create any moving averages you want.  I am using a 20 day Simple and [...]

Hey everyone.  Here are some cherry picked winners for today :).  I know it won't help you make money tomorrow, but it's important I feel to look at as many charts as possible from the past so that you can possible make good decisions about the future.  I'm still working [...]

Note to self…don’t trade

2011-11-01T18:13:47-04:00November 1, 2011|

This was the worst day by far for my trading style.  Check out some of the charts…they speak for themselves.  These days are kryptonite for my types of trades…breakouts of daily highs or lows. […]

PXD – Great Move!

2011-10-31T14:01:57-04:00October 31, 2011|

I have to be honest, this isn't a stock that I regularly watch so i never would have caught the move but I saw a post where Ryan Mallory had played it one and I checked it out.  I wanted to post it here to show a picture perfect move [...]

AA – Makes another good move today

2011-10-31T13:42:11-04:00October 31, 2011|

Most people don’t typically think of trading dow stocks as day trades.  But this one has caught my eye lately.  Notice on this trade how you could sell short right after the blue line (which indicates 10am).  I usually either use a trailing stop of about 1-2% or I use [...]
