Watchlist for 2-17-2015 – $IBIO, $GENE, $SGNL, $CRIS, $BLDP, $ANTH, $PRSS

Today’s Plan:

Muddy waters pick coming today (11AM EST), always worth keeping an eye out.

After the long weekend, going to really focus on entries. Will prefer to watch in the morning and ideally fade late day. But if I get any crazy pops out of these I will short early.

Watchlist for 2-13-2015 – $GENE, $OPK, $CRIS, $BLDP, $RAD, $KING, $ZIOP

Today’s Plan:

Started my scans this morning, but forgot I had an event at my daughters school. Posting this late, but I like to have them for reference to review next week. When I build my scan’s I start by flipping back trough the last 3-5 days worth of posts.

Watchlist for 2-12-2015 – $BLDP, $ANTH, $OPK, $GENE, $CRIS, $PRSS, $IVAN, $RAD

Today’s Plan:

Almost traded $BLDP several times yesterday, there were for sure some decent opportunities, but I ended up staying away. In hindsight I think that was wise, strong push into the close and strong premarket still. It will still be my primary watch.

Note: I just accidentally saved all these charts on a weekly time frame, I’m not gonna go back and redo them, sorry. Tomorrow I’ll be back to posting dailies.

BLDP

Even yesterday my short target was $3, I really had a feeling this could continue to run. This morning its pushing to $3, still timid on this one. But for sure getting ready to hit it hard.

Target: $3.00

BLDP

ANTH

Still strong yesterday, but I like this area for entry, easy to set risk on $4.00

Target: $3.90

ANTH

OPK

Nice drop right out of the gate yesterday but then pushed up all morning only to fade all afternoon. Will watch this for a fade if it fails to spike first thing.

Target: $14.20-$14.40

OPK

GENE

This thing continues to be a widow maker on the short side. I’ll only trade into spikes around $5.

Target: $5.00

GENE

CRIS

Star stepping up, so no good entries yet, but so many days walking up. Watching for a speed up parabolic type move.

Target: Fast move to the upside/parabolic

CRIS

PRSS

Positive news yesterday, but I just wonder if some of the move was “artificial” this is the type that could fade for days.

Target: Sideways or fading action around the $2.70’s-$2.80’s

PRSS

IVAN

Yesterday was the day to get into this, once it cracked 90 cents it was all over, more of a swing type, but this probably goes all the way back to 50 cents in the next few weeks.

Target: Just watching, I try and avoid < $1 stocks. IVAN

RAD

Real company but I like the price action, lots of gap ups in the past. Will only short if I can get a double top around $8.40’s

Target: $8.40

RAD

List from 3/7/2014: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Solid list from Friday, nailed the shorts on $ZAAP, $PXLW, $PPHM, $XGTI

What a killer day to be trading penny stocks, I was out most of the day for my son’s birthday party, but after getting home in the evening and clicking review, it was super exciting to see the outcome of the screens!

Only bummer about a killer scan on Friday is as a result I don’t see a whole lot today. Below are some mediocre setups, but nothing I’m too excited about. I’ll start digging harder about 8:30 to prep into the open.

PLUG,FCEL,BLDP

These are all the same sector and all up huge, but everyone and their brother are trying to short them. I like the charts, but I prefer to short stocks when the crowd is on the believer side not the hater side. They will all probably end up solid shorts, but not today/this week.

BLDP

FCEL

PLUG

SMSI

Positive news, but these guys are just “too old” in my opinion. I remember using their Telnet application back in the 90’s. Looks like they are just doing some lame rebranding to stay relevant.

SMSI

THTI

Kind of like $SMSI, good news, but boring industry,how exciting can heat transfer plates be?

Watchlist 3-7-2014 – $ZAAP, $PXLW, $PPHM, $BLDP, $FCEL, $SUNE, $NEWL, $XGTI, $ZBB

Alright, I’ve decided to get back into cranking out the daily watchlists. My trading this last week has been pretty erratic and all over the place. Profits have been hard to produce on a consistent basis. I’m up a bunch, then give a lot of it back. I’m too quick to close out winners and holding on to losers to long. I’ve been putting notes in my private journal but I think “putting it out there” is much more productive. Between a daily watchlist and a daily recap I think its a solid way to produce a more consistent profit curve. Not to mention when daytrading its tough to remember everything you did in a day. Reviewing via a blog is a killer way to cement in your head what you did right and wrong during the day.

Not to mention, forcing yourself to look in the mirror when it comes to your trading performance is a great way to “Be a professional”.

ZAAP

Huge news about something to do with their electric car, I won’t short this, its too cheap, plus I have no idea how good the news is. But should be interesting to watch.

ZAAP

PXLW

Scary and usually foolish to short into $APPL hype, but I’m watching this one close for fading, huge day yesterday and even more after hours.

PXLW

PPHM

I’m short this overnight and up a couple cents, I made solid money on the long side the other day but sold at like $2.20… I also plan on getting back into posting real time trades on Twitter. Not that anyone will perceive any value in them, I just again think its productive to trade in the sunlight. I’m confident one of the reason’s many of the Profit.ly guru’s do so well is because they know they have hundreds or thousands of eyeballs watching every move. Myself I find it much easier to be disciplined and follow your rules when you know others are expecting you to.

PPHM

BLDP,FCEL

These are both $PLUG sympathy plays. I have made a couple hundred here and there shorting $FCEL and $PLUG, but the profits have been piddly. I’m not that interested in $PLUG anymore, but I think the big short could be coming soon both on $BLDP and $FCEL.

BLDP

FCEL

SUNE

Lost money being to early on this one. In hindsight my trade was foolish, it never showed ANY signs of fading and I kept adding to my position. Still strong yesterday, but soon it will roll over hard me thinks.

SUNE

NEWL

I’m to dumb to understand these reverse splits, so I’m just adding this as a reminder to check on it in a few days.

NEWL

XGTI

Missed this solid short setup the other day because I was wasting time on shittier setups. There is still some solid potential here though!

XGTI

ZBB

Similar to $XGTI, I think the good entry has been missed, but still solid potential for this to fade.

ZBB

Now that I’m done, I forgot how much I like making these lists! Its time consuming, but worthwhile and really helps dial your mind into the trading day. While creating this list may not make a huge difference I think its like cramming before a test, even if you already know the material it just helps dial you in last minute.
