Watchlist 1-17-2014 – $ARNA, $GALE, $NLST, $ELON

Not seeing a ton on scan today, but I’ll admit I’m not putting my full effort into it either. I’ll be AFK most the day after 10AM or so.

Made a nice solid profit on $PLUG yesterday, kind of a risky play, but I decided to hold into the conference call. Lots of spiking in the morning but as soon as the call started it pretty much collapsed instantly. In the end happy with the profit though the risk to reward might not have been that great.

I’m currently short $VG overnight, I watched $ARNA all day long and never saw a good entry, so for some random and stupid reason I shorted $VG out of boredom. I’m basically flat right now, ideally I get out for a small profit or flat. This trade is annoying for sure. Pisses me off when I make decisions like that.

ARNA

Comments above, still stalking for a short entry.

ARNA

GALE

Made money shorting this last week, and thought about re-entry this week. Looks like it got crushed overnight so a tough miss.

GALE

NLST

I think this has solid positive news, but also a long history of spiking and failing.

ELON

Watchlist 1-16-2014 – $CHTP, $VG, $PLUG, $KNDI, $ARNA, $BCRX

CHTP

BLEGH, totally terrible miss by me yesterday. I was busy in the morning, super frustrating to see a play like this and not be able to trade it. I need to make sure my butt is in the seat every day. To many misses like this lately.

CHTP

VG

I have perpetual hate for this company.

PLUG

Went short this into the close, they have an event today so that was probably a foolish choice. But after several misses yesterday morning I was “jonesing” for a trade.

PLUG

KNDI

I’m hoping this just goes crazy, that way I can get a short entry, lots of support right now.

KNDI

ARNA

Fat loss pills, a sector I have and always will aggressively short.

ARNA

BCRX

Watched this all day yesterday, and never went short when I should have several times, hoping for another spike to sell into.

Watchlist – 6-29-2012 – $ARNA, $HNR, $KWK,

Well considering I’ve hacked and slashed my way through this week with nothing significant to speak of trading wise. I”m gonna wrap this watch list up with not much effort. Funny how I came into the week with such high hopes and tons of motivation, then rapidly gave up all will to trade. Nothing to do with losses, I’m still up on the one actual trade I made this week, but so many missed solid opportunities made it very frustrating to bring up a quote box and see all that happened without me being involved.

Besides the fact that the day job has been over the top busy and stressful this week. It only made trying to trade doubly frustrating. But alas, I have no desire to trade full time and missed opportunities and the inability to trade at times are part of being a part timer. Trading is truly a roller coaster, enjoy it when its good and ride it out when its bad. These week is currently being rode the fuck out…

Ooooh baby look at those two BEAUTIFUL shorting opportunities….

Watchlist – 6-26-2012 – $ARNA, $HNR, $OSIR, $SNTA,

I continue to be haunted by what could have been with $ARNA, after watching it all last week I failed to trade it in any way. Alas thats part of being a part timer I suppose, but truly heart breaking to see it break down without me along for the ride. Stil watching $OSIR and $SNTA closely for a short, should have probably went long both of them already. While they are both crappy in their own right, I don’t think either will end up being as nice and easy of a short as $ARNA was/is. Not to mention shorts are hard to come by on $OSIR, I know they are out there, but my broker ($IBKR) has not had any, or if they have had them, they are all soaked up every time I check.

I went short $HNR late yesterday, gee guess why? Perhaps out of boredom? Hmm why else go short a NYSE stock that just got $700 million? I mean, I like the fading volume/price on the chart, but this stock could easily go no where for a looong time, meanwhile I’m wasting mental energy staring at it, cursing for it to fall apart. Considering I will be very busy and AFK a lot today, I’m just hoping for a quick drop that I can scalp. I have my alerts set and will be anxiously awaiting that SMS.

Watchlist – 6-25-2012 – $ARNA, $HNR, $OSIR

Hmmm, what to trade today? Tough day on the screens again, just not seeing anything that solid for a short setup. I may just have to look for momentum trades at the open. I don’t particularly care for going into the day with no plan, but when the setups aren’t there they just aren’t there. No amount of beating the bushes running scans will bring them out.

Watchlist – 6-22-2012 – $ARNA, $IDNG, $OSIR

Well been a pretty crappy week to trade, non stop chop and just never been any great setups to short into. The two I’ve been yapping about all week $ARNA and $OSIR, just keep going up. I’ve never seen shares of $OSIR and every time I have a chance to short $ARNA it spikes.

Appears this week will not be it for those two. Other then that I made money this week but with a couple of non “pennystocking” trades. But I picked a funky week to get into more active trading.

At this point I’m just glad I’m going into Friday profitable. I’m going to do my best to NOT trade today unless something super tasty comes up. I really do not want to turn a profitable week in very non ideal conditions into a loser.

Watchlist – 6-21-2012 – $ARNA, $OSIR

Well I’ll be honest I’m mailing this list in today, I’ve just put about 10 minutes of effort into it. But I’m instructing two classes today: http://www.cmsinter.net/blog/?p=718 They each run about 4 hours usually so there is no way I’ll have time to trade. If I try and squeeze in some trading it will only distract me from what I need to get done. Thats part of the game as a part time trader, there will be days when you are just flat out of the markets. But hey, staying in cash is better then losing money.
