Watchlist for 3-22-2016 – $CPXX, $VTAE, $CRC, $OVAS, $CBDS, $VCEL

Today’s Watchlist

Small gains yesterday on $CPXX, $WLL and $VTAE, but I rushed entries. Had I followed my normal plan of waiting for spikes CPXX and VTAE could have been very solid trades. Of course WLL was a small nail and bail since its oil and gas. I didn’t take huge gains on it, but it spiked right after I covered so a solid trade.

Back to my normal ultra patient technique today, was fired up and ready to get after it yesterday and it showed in my chase entries. Then ended up glued to the screens all day, annoying.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Celator Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (CPXX) -NasdaqCM

CPXX

Vitae Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (VTAE) -NasdaqGM

Target: Pop’s to $8.00

Today’s Watchlist

Smaller list today, but will look to add more tickers into open.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Celator Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (CPXX) -NasdaqCM

Pulls under $8.50 or let it set a top in the morning and late day fade.

CPXX

Vitae Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (VTAE) -NasdaqGM

Kind of the same as CPXX, look to short a breakdown early, or if it runs out of the gate a late day fade with set risk.

VTAE

Whiting Petroleum Corp. (WLL) -NYSE

Oil strong this morning, so this may hold up, more of a reactive trade but will not get aggressive because it moves with oil.

WLL

Vericel Corporation (VCEL) -NasdaqCM

Volume has really come out, will look to join short if it breaks down and brings in some volume.

Trade Notes: $CHK 3-18-2016

Notes:

2016-03-18 08:48 – Long $CHK 1/2 size, add to winner, sell at $5.10’s watch with $WLL and $OIL, consider adding above $5.50. Risking 20 cents or so to make $1+ on a squeeze.

2016-03-18 09:54 – Probably gave a little too much room, but pushing for highs. Risking 20 cents to make 60+ cents over $6.00

2016-03-18 10:26 – Sold at $5.00 again probably too much room, but $WLL cracking and Oil pulling. More or less followed my plan, little slip on the stop though.

Watchlist for 3-18-2016 – $VTAE, $CPXX, $ZYNE, $HTBX, $VCEL, $CBDS

Today’s Watchlist

Annoying day yesterday, traded $VTAE and $CPXX for small losses, but then was ultimately right. I sized in properly had a plan, but just got squeezed, hit my stop and closed out. It happens.

Sorry about the lack of watchlists this week, was traveling, back in the groove now.

I have an event at my daughter’s school this afternoon so I will only trade the morning. Which is fine I usually avoid Friday afternoons anyway.

Today’s Watchlist

Doing my best to avoid loading up the watchlist with crappy oil and gas. Oil futures up big so today probably not gonna be a short day for them. They will die eventually but not looking like today.

Ended up passing on this, was just too cautious, but really felt like it had another run in it. And I try and not to short day 1. Ideally a big rip, its still early and its Friday, if this just grinds up I’m in no hurry and will wait till next week.

Today’s Watchlist

Pretty good day on $JCP yesterday, nothing amazing, totally blew it missing $LEU, silly to lose focus and not trade it. Held $LINE overnight, looking to scale.

SMH.. More crappy oil and gas loading up the scans, they all move together and mostly with oil, only thing encouraging about yesterday was when oil ripped, $LINE and $LNCO basically did nothing. Thinking buyers are getting wore out, this news on $EXXI is probably coming for all of these at some point: Energy XXI says may file for bankruptcy if oil prices stay low

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

LINE,EPE,WLL et al all the same watching pops and watching USO /CL

LINE

J. C. Penney Company, Inc. (JCP) -NYSE

JCP

Astrotech Corp. (ASTC) -NasdaqCM

Watching for a squeeze, probably loaded with shorts, if it fails without me oh well.

ASTC

TransEnterix, Inc. (TRXC) -NYSE MKT

Basically same comments as $ASTC

trxc

Centrus Energy Corp. (LEU) -NYSE MKT

Still lots of downside, but hoping for a pop, won’t chase.

Today’s Watchlist

Well, it appears yesterday was the day for the oil and gas plays… Shows how being too early can create a lot of frustration. I battled DNR, WLL etc for days, then made small profits when the day came. I should have held DNR for HUGE profits, though I was so tired from battling I covered for small. Frustrating for sure.

FYI I will be starting a series of posts on “Trading Mentality” ideally to help others, but even more selfish to help myself. I have a solid base of trading knowledge and methodologies, but lately I seem to be struggling to “Put it all together” ideally through writing and more deep thought I can help eliminate some of my frustrations and create a more “big picture view” for myself.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Centrus Energy Corp. (LEU) -NYSE MKT

Ideally a squeeze early then entries for fade.

LEU

Linn Co, LLC (LNCO) -NasdaqGS

Depends on oil, but watching Pops.

Free Public Trading Webinar – March 10th @ 4:15PM

timwebinar

I will be hosting a free webinar at Investors Underground, topics and discussion will be focused around part time trading and how to specifically use the products and services at Investors Underground. My focus will be on how to use the products and services at IU to speed up your learning curve as well as how to save time pre market and during the trading day. Finding and targeting only the best potential trades is a constant battle for a part time trader. IU is a hugely valuable asset in narrowing down 10,000 tickers to 5-6 each day.

Topics will include:

  • How I use IU daily
    • Nightly Scans
    • Pre market human “screener”
    • Mid day check in – filter by ticker
    • Updates from Moderators
  • How I filter all of the tickers from the above bullets, create alerts and focus on the best stocks of the day.
  • Examples of recent trades straight out of the chat room and commentary.

Also feel free to submit any questions or potential topics of discussion in the comments section of this post. Or submit them via email through the form in the upper right of this blog.

Oil and gas, oil and gas, oil and gas, grind up, grind up, grind up…. Gotta be ready when these fuckers crack but WOW was yesterday annoying, then again oil and gas all over watch. Makes me want to take the day off these stocks that track oil seem so random.

I’m only adding three oil and gas that are interesting, they all move together anyway no point in watching any more than that. $EPE, $WLL, $DNR

Also not going to bother with charts today, they are all the same anyway….
