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.

Watchlist 4-22-2014 – $FXEN, $JAKK, $AXAS, $HIL, $BIOF

While nothing to brag about, I did stick to the plan yesterday and finished the day green. Some software issues as well as mediocre decisions minimized my gains.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

FX Energy Inc. (FXEN) -NasdaqGS

Covered this in my recap video from yesterday, royally messed up the first short, but I’ll put 30% of the blame on software issues. Second short of the day was very solid. I think this continues to fade today.

FXEN

JAKKS Pacific, Inc. (JAKK) -NasdaqGS

Almost shorted this 2-3 times last hour of the day yesterday, not sure why I stayed out though. It just never felt right. But looks like it could start fading very soon.

JAKK

Abraxas Petroleum Corp. (AXAS) -NasdaqCM

Decided to hold this short overnight, though a smart man would have cut it. It might crack, but I am more confident it probably just grinds me and becomes annoying. Should have just went into the overnight with a clean slate. I HATE holding stocks overnight, especially mediocre setups like this one.

AXAS

Hill International, Inc. (HIL) -NYSE

Like the chart, but I hate shorting $NYSE stocks, doubt I’ll play this.

HIL

BioFuel Energy Corp. (BIOF) -NasdaqCM

Had this on watch from yesterday so because of that almost traded it several times. Much like $JAKK it just never felt right, though had I entered it could have been a decent trade. Will watch for further fading today.
