NEWL

Crazy stock the last couple days, I’m either too chicken or too stupid to trade it, or possibly both. Bummer is on stocks like this I’m so short biased that I never want to enter long. But then the spikes scare me out of going short. Good one to watch and learn I guess.

NEWL

AMKR

Went short this late day yesterday, looks fadish, but I think the risk/reward is pretty lame. Probably a scalp at best.

AMKR

UEC

Still holding this from several days ago, seems to be running out of gas and it appears to be a complete POS, so I’m holding for a good crack.

UEC

CXDC

Kind of like $AMKR chart wise, steady trend up with no pullbacks. Another flaw I have is automatically wanted to short every small cap chinese stock that pops. Not sure this thing might be for “real”.

CXDC

Watchlist 5-15-2014 – $UEC, $SUMR, $CXDC

No charts or comments today, my wordpress site appears to be jacked up, trying to get it working.

Update 9:25AM – Got my site fixed, I uploaded the charts, but not going to bother with comments since its 5 minutes till the open.

Watchlist 4-23-2014 – $FXEN, $AXAS, $CXDC, $HIL, $BIOF

Another solid green day yesterday, though nothing to brag about. I think I was up roughly $650ish. Seemed tough to find my sort of play yesterday, and for sure no slam dunks so I was just in full on grind mode. Much like Monday, at least I got a lot done during the day as well. So while profit is “ok” I’m happy with it considering the setups.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

FX Energy Inc. (FXEN) -NasdaqGS

Almost shorted this several times, but convinced myself it was only out of boredom. Glad I stayed away yesterday, but a lot of these POS oil and gassers seem to be losing momentum.

FXEN

Abraxas Petroleum Corp. (AXAS) -NasdaqCM

This was my best trade of the day yesterday, though of course I only caught a small part of the move. I covered at $5.20, it fell into the $4.90’s. Still looks pretty weak.

AXAS

China XD Plastics Company Ltd. (CXDC) -NasdaqGM

Been watching this for several days, I was hoping for a much bigger spike to short into. At this point its becoming kind of lame. If nothing happens today I’ll probably quit watching it, kind of boring.

CXDC

Hill International, Inc. (HIL) -NYSE

Another boredom short and an NYSE stock… I shorted this late afternoon and was up decent but it was so boring I let it come back on me. I have a feeling this will only crack if the market gets shitty. But I was basically flat so I decided to hold over night. Meh…. Does seem to be losing steam at least.

HIL

BioFuel Energy Corp. (BIOF) -NasdaqCM

Another annoying shitty stock that refuses to break down. I spent way to much time watching it yesterday and all it did was spike. This is another one that I’m giving up on after today.

BIOF

Watchlist 4-17-2014 – $BAS, $MNTR, $CXDC, $FXEN, $HK, $PBR

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Basic Energy Services, Inc. (BAS) -NYSE

Thought about shorting this about a half dozen times yesterday, but just never got a good feel for an entry. I’ll be watching very closely today. I think once it starts to roll over it could crack hard and be a solid multi day fader.

BAS

Mentor Capital, Inc. (MNTR) -Other OTC

While the chart on setup is only “ok” I would love to get short this. Best I can tell they are some sort of Weed hedge fund. Thats the sort of ridiculous business I love to short on a fundamental basis. Ideally this spikes for some reason to setup a better short entry.

MNTR

China XD Plastics Company Ltd. (CXDC) -NasdaqGM

This is almost the opposite thesis as $MNTR, I like the chart on this ticker, but they appear to have a very “real” business. Lots of revenue etc. But I do like the chart setup. Probably a better long than short, but hey I can’t fight who I am, short biased as all getout.

CXDC

FX Energy Inc. (FXEN) -NasdaqGS

I bought and sold this real quick yesterday for a quick couple hundred bucks. Of course my exit was terrible. Anytime I buy a breakout I invariably let it run, then sell when it fades back, minimizing my profits. I think I sold $4.15ish in the morning, it almost immediately shot to $4.28. I’ll be watching for fading today and a crack back below $4.

FXEN

Halc (HK) -NYSE

Steady uptrend and a strong chart, but shitty little frackers are a delectable short. If this fails to break out today, I’ll be looking to get short.

HK

Petr (PBR) -NYSE

I’m short this overnight and basically sitting flat on it. I placed the order based on the chart and the ticker, I did not realize this was I think the Brazil national oil company… Not exactly the type of POS I like to short. Chart looks very fadish and setting up for a crack, but I have no idea the fundamentals or why, how or what this will trade like. Not real happy to be holding it, I’ll have a very short leash, but damn if it can crack $13 its mother fucking party time!
