Watchlist 12-31-2013 – $KNDI, $AMRS, $RITT, $BORN, $MCP, $REE

Full list from Yahoo Finance

KNDI

Stalking for a short entry.

KNDI

AMRS

Alternative energy, ethanol etc, love shorting this industry.

AMRS

RITT

Buy alert of the day, I went long late yesterday on the spike. Since I bought this will invariably crash at the open…

RITT

BORN

I missed this yesterday, I have it in my logbook/journal as a paper short, not sure why I held back. Probably more downside today, but I will try to avoid forcing it.

BORN

MCP, REE

Rare earth metals play, I’m short $REE, $MCP is one of the “leaders” of this sector and its fading, my thought is that $REE will follow it down.

MCP

REE

Watchlist 1/3/2012 – $ANAD, $MCP, $MEET, $YONG, $UVXY

Well kind of bummed about this watch list. I had assumed after the huge day yesterday I would have all kinds of potential shorts show up on screens. But in the end nothing that great.

ANAD

Not crazy about this pick, but the chart looks like it could crack back quickly at some point.

ANAD

MCP

Probably too late on this for the short, but I kept it on watch mainly out of spite after missing it yesterday.

MCP

MEET

This is really an attempt at fishing, I’ve made money on this stock in the past, but I don’t think its up enough to make it a solid short. Could be scalped but thats probably it.

MEET

YONG

Another stock like MEET, I’ve made money on this in the past, would like the chart to be more vertical before shorting, but meh, I think money could be made on this.

YONG

UVXY

Lots of blabber on this on twitter and chat rooms etc. I am not fond of trading ETF’s, especially when I have no idea what they are even set to track… But if there is price movement and volatility there is money to be made. I’ll only trade this as a last resort.

UVXY

Trade recap 1/2/2013

Well per my pre market post I had good plans of trading today. Well about 10AM, I came down with one of the worst colds I’ve had in a looong time. I’m determined to show up everyday so I’m here even though I feel like absolute death!

Overall nothing great for my types of setups today, but I would have liked to trade $MCP.

I think its realistic to have shorted in the high $10’s and grabbed an easy 50 cents a share.

Ugh this sucks, hope I feel better tomorrow.

 

MCP

2 Weeks of part time trading + 2 hours of total work adds up to $3K in profits

Considering only 1 of the 6 trades I consider “managed well”, I’ll take it..

My spreadsheet is way to wide to display on the blog, so obviously click it if you want to see an expanded full view of my trade log.

Also at some point soon my lazy ass will verify these trades on Profit.ly
