Like most Friday’s I will only be trading a half day. Could be kind of a bummer, with all the Ebola news this afternoon could be interesting. But also dangerous, I got in my opinion lucky on $TKMR yesterday. Made a nice profit then had the intention of holding 1/2 all day for a fade, after it would not crack $18.50 I covered, about 30 minutes later the NYC Ebola news came out and I would have been torched. I’ll be looking to short any and all Ebola’s on weak price action. But I will not try and pick any tops and will not hold long. The potential for news is way to high. If I was smart I’d be playing them on the long side, that is probably where the easy money is.
No trades and nothing worth watching towards the end of last week. Boredom looks to continue this week. I managed to get my ass stuck in ARNA by working on the go all day Friday. Dumb. Hopefully it was just a lame Friday afternoon short squeeze but the stock has gone from looking pretty weak to now looking strong. Something a part time trader should NEVER do is get into a position when you can’t pay it full attention. That is normally one of my primary trading rules. Hmm guess I broke that one eh? Fucking stupid… Futures were up when I went to bed but now this morning they are fading, annoying. It would be nice if the market would get decisive and go one way and stick to it instead of this chop. Well here are five stocks barely worth watching.

I’ve said enough already, now I just need to decide to hold until their drug is proven worthless and continue to get squeezed or just cut and run. Still a short in my opinion, but not right now based on the chart. SHORT
Shady looking biotech, lame little spike, but I see no reason for it. SHORT
A few shares out there to short, I’m tempted to take them into Friday’s spike. Good chance this stock ends up right back at a $1. SHORT
Ton’s of positive news, big revenue gains, analyst upgrades etc. Somewhat “real” company so I will probably just watch, but curious to see where this big spike goes. SHORT
I’ve been watching this for a week and would really like to short. But everyday I hesitate and the borrows dry up at IB. They are back again today, I just need to get decisive and enter a position. This stock will almost certainly tank 30% soon. Just a bummer its right at a dollar, I would like to see it run more before shorting. SHORT
