Good day yesterday, I fought to avoid mediocre trades and closed out a solid overnight trade on $TRXC. Looking forward to today going in cash! Even though $TRXC was a winner I plane HATE having positions overnight. So refreshing to be clean and in cash.

Planned on just taking the morning off for a hunt yesterday but ended up not getting back till 3:30 or so, so no trades for me. But does not look like I missed anything too amazing.

Like this list of tickers, but going to definitely be a “reassess after 9AM” type day. Woke up and markets and oil were tanking, now everything seems to be bouncing, going to chill and wait for more of a direction.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Natural Health Trends Corp. (NHTC) -NasdaqCM

Huge list today, but I will also be out this morning. Working on an outside project so I’m pretty “open” to adding stuff to my list. Will re-asses this afternoon and go from there. Also running a little low on time so no charts. But my plan will be to get back this afternoon and click the Yahoo Finance link below and decide the 2-3 of this tickers that would be afternoon trades.

I have also gone back to blogging my “intraday thoughts” on trades mainly to help force my conviction, a couple times this week I have had self talk that nailed trades, especially on stops, but then ignore myself. I find writing things down helps enforce discipline.

Trade Notes: $QUOT 2-17-2016

QUOT

Notes:

9:36AM – Starter @ $9.00 based off $GRPN weakness

9:39AM – Pre market plan “Target: PLEASE give me $9.50-$10 or will look to fade if $GRPN gets weak.” Will look to add as long as $GRPN continues to fade.

9:45AM – Not real happy about this pop above $9.00 still watching $GRPN SPY, both weak.

9:47AM – $GRPN continues to fade, looking to add pops.

9:51AM – Won’t add over $9 this early though. Seems to be basing there, may push higher before fading.

9:54AM – Going to continue to “try and make this work” as long as $GRPN stays under $4.00

10:04AM – Hmm looks like maybe my theory of $GRPN and $QUOT being couple is flawed. $GRPN keeps fading and $QUOT keeps grinding.

10:20AM – Already rode out the early squeeze, stop at $9.30, look to add to winner and fade all day.

10:29AM – Running out of patience, but $9.30 is resistance and a double top.

10:44AM – Ok tops is in, time to start planning adds.

11:02AM – Gonna take a quick break and reassess, basically flat right now.

11:31AM – Grrr.. $GRPN on lows $QUOT popping up a little a bit.

11:42AM – Added into bounce off of $9.30 and $GRPN fading/getting ready to crack.

12:18PM – Nice pull going to try and hold out for Green to Red.

2:04PM – Sitting pretty much on LOD’s, $GRPN little perk ideally a fail on $GRPN to really pull $QUOT

2:41PM – Time to start looking to exit, trying to hold for a wash, but $SPY strong and $GRPN strong, and this is down a lot.

3:44PM – Will be out by close, probably a decent overnight hold, but busy tomorrow.

3:51PM – Covered at $8.43, just wish $SPY wasnt closing on HOD’s or else I’d hold over.

Trade Notes: $RGLS -2/17/2016

RGLS

Notes:

8:29AM – Started in pre on pop back to $9.00

Small size just starter, conference call going on. Will only add to winner in pre.

8:58AM – Holding $9 pretty well no adds in pre. Willing to let it bang around in pre, but will be quick after the open.

9:05AM – Pull to $8.60’s but now bounced to $9.00, again no adds in pre.

9:14AM – Acting stronger, looks to spike at the open.

9:15AM -Somewhat postive tweet from AdamF.

9:30AM – Set closing order at $8.50 in case of quick pull.

9:31AM – Covered, looks to keep fading hard, oh well low stress trade.

Tough day for me, mainly just because of trying to hard to make stuff work. $FCX was completely a boredom trade then I held way too long when it was grinding up. Covered for a small loss, and it spiked after hours so at least I didn’t get stubborn and hold overnight. $QUOT I entered before my plan should have waited for $9 and could have had a nice late day fade. Instead I entered early time and price wise, got squeezed a little and then it pulled into the close. PERFECT example of a decent trade, but poor timing.

Plan for today is to be extra patient and disciplined on entry. Had I not been rushing to trade after the long weekend, I could have had a good day yesterday instead of mediocre loser.

$QUOT I tried it, but pushing hod's and $GRPN strong and it's only day 2 main watch for a para tomorrow.

Groupon, Inc. (GRPN) -NasdaqGS

Glad I recognized this was strong and avoided, though I still shorted $QUOT which basically moves with this. So still got squeezed on the “daily deals” sector. No rush on this, will wait for it to get crazy $4.50+

GRPN

Quotient Technology Inc. (QUOT) -NYSE

This one definitely “tricked me”. I had an ok entry late day. Though when it was pushing and $GRPN was breaking out I covered. Considering the circumstances that was a good cover, though after I exited and left for a meeting it cracked right into the close. Annoying, the exact move I was looking for. This will be a prime watch today.

Target: PLEASE give me $9.50-$10 or will look to fade if $GRPN gets weak.

Final Wrapup Review of How to Make Millions – DVD Review by @timothysykes

Link to purchase “How to Make Millions” DVD by Timothy Sykes

Final Review:

This will be the final recap and review of Tim Sykes How to Make Millions DVD series. Keep in mind this is only the summary, in this series of posts I go through chapter by chapter with a relatively high level of detail. I also give a stream of bullet points detailing what each chapter is composed of. Just keep that in mind that this post is not the complete review. If you want all the detail and are on the fence about purchasing, go through the full series of posts.

I mention in the introduction that I have viewed lots and lots of trading DVD’s through the years. Some good, some ok and some decent. Sykes past DVD’s have been all across this scale, many very good, one maybe two kinda bad, and several right in the middle. This DVD I can honestly say is his best, ESPECIALLY for new or beginning traders. The content is great and comprehensive and pretty well organized. Plus when you factor in the low price and 100% of proceeds going to charity the value is ratcheted up considerably.

While trading “gurus/furu’s” (I hate this term BTW) and trading DVD’s get a pretty bum rap on the internet especially twitter. In my opinion there really is no better way to learn for the beginner. I go back to the first time I viewed Sykes Pennystocking I DVD in 2007-2008 I think. It was a mess production wise, bad/no editing, rambling and disorganized, but I STILL learned sooo much and truly considered it instrumental in improving my trading, especially in relation to short selling. Now sure you can probably find a majority of this info free on youtube, that’s what most the haters will say. But you will spend countless hours trying to find the right content, then hopefully it is actually useful and the presenter doesn’t make you want to gouge your ears out. Video learning is the future, you could easily buy 10X the amount of trading books from Amazon, spend 100’s of more hours reading and STILL not learn REAL WORLD what Sykes teaches in this DVD.

Sure will 20 year veterans of trading say “It’s basic” but where the hell are you supposed to start if you are new to trading? Other haters will say “Don’t learn from Sykes he’s just a Furu” but ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of this DVD goes to charity. Jealous losers will reply “All this can be found free on the internet.” As I mentioned above, good luck wading into those weeds and losing your eternal soul to trying to find all this info organized in one place, all you have to do is click play.

In summary, if you are a new trader, I really am not aware of a better value to get started in trading. Will you be able to “Make Millions” after watching this DVD, maybe but its a longshot. But can you take the first step towards become a Consistently Profitable Trader and start expanding your skill set to some day in the future “Make Millions”. Yes this DVD is a very solid first step along the road to the success.

Ideally futures keep going and get some runners this morning. At this point a little slow, but I’m thinking its a new week after a holiday, things should get much more interesting into the open.

This is probably dead meat, I think there are more offerings that came out over the weekend. But will pray for spikes. Give longs an exit and squeeze shorts then fade it all day.

Really struggling to find a reason NOT to take today off… Its Friday, been an “ok” week and market closed Monday. Plus everything on scan is very very MEH. About 75% coming up on scan are gold stocks, blegh.

Unless something interesting comes up between now and the open, its gonna take A LOT to get me to sit in front of a PC today.
