Watchlist for 3-24-2015 – $RADA, $HZNP, $MVIS, $CORT, $IMGN, $NXTD, $SEED

Today’s Plan:

Very solid day yesterday, one of those “grind it out” kind of days. But I say it all the time, just trade good setups and be quick and the profits add up fast. Much like yesterday nothing screams out at me, hoping RADA goes bat shit crazy to the upside, probably my main watch.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

RADA

Made money on this, but nothing great, really small size, had my plan written out to add, but didnt, not sure why I had no conviction. Hoping for a crazy spike up to the $3.40’s-$3.50

Target: $3.50

RADA

HZNP

Still fading this, target is for the the crack under $22 and I’ll cover.

HZNP

MVIS

This hit my target at $4 yesterday but I didn’t realize till the last minute that it was not easy to borrow and by then I didn’t have time to locate. Basically the same plan today, hoping for a pop to scale into.

Target: High $3’s

MVIS

CORT

Miss yesterday, had my alert at $6, but didnt enter, not sure why at this point, I think I was just distracted with other tickers.

Target: Pops to fade

CORT

IMGN

Will only short a huge pop.

Target: $9+

IMGN

NXTD

They keep trying to pump up their stupid digital wallet with press releases. Easy short was yesterday, but I’ll look for anything parabolic to short into.

Target: Big pop

NXTD

SEED

“Former runner”, I’ve trade this thing countless times through the years, will not get caught in the frontside, hopefully it runs for days and I can hit the backside. Just watching for now.

Target: Multi day run.

SEED

Watchlist for 3-23-2015 – $MVIS, $NXTD, $BDE, $CORT, $HZNP, $REPH

Today’s Plan:

Nothing super compelling this morning out of the gate, but several good setups. Will be patient and let them come to me. Good week last week, not going to press this morning.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

MVIS

Covered for small gains Friday, one of those annoying types of trades. It was weak and probably cracks today, but when its chop chop chop all day and its Friday, I just hate holding over the weekend. Hoping for a pop today to get short again.

Target: $3.90’s

MVIS

NXTD

Strong stock, but I really think this is a POS, can still run though so I’ll set a high target and only trade if it comes to me.

Target: $4.50

NXTD

BDE

Thought about shorting this Friday, but wasted all my time watching $MVIS, will watch pops.

Target: $10.20

BDE

CORT

Looking to short pops.

Target: $5.75

CORT

HZNP

The most annoying stock in quite some time, traded this a ton over the last few weeks. Need to run a report, but I’m assuming I’m in the red on it. Made several small profits, but then took a bigger loss by going in with size Friday, felt like the run was over. But stupid press release about them ringing the bell today. Maybe once longs realize that basically means nothing it wills start to crack.

Target: $22.85

HZNP

REPH

Looking for a double top at $9.

Target: $9.00

REPH

Watchlist for 3-20-2015 – $MVIS, $AXN, $CRMD, $HZNP, $CNDO, $FOLD, $BDE, $CORT

Today’s Plan:

Way to many stocks on watch, all these are shorts on pops except $BDE, will look to fade that. I need to spend the next hour hashing out a plan though. Very all over the place with these setups.

Watchlist for 3-18-2015 – $CRMD, $MVIS, $HZNP, $AXN, $BDE, $MELA

Today’s Plan:

Another grind it out kind of day yesterday, but any green day is a good day I suppose. Nothing great to report though, and nothing I’m majorly excited about today either.

Watchlist for 3-17-2015 – $CRMD, $MVIS, $AMRN, $MELA, $HZNP, $AXN

Today’s Plan:

Good day yesterday, interesting how small profits can really surprise you at the end of the day. They pile up quickly.

My main focus was $HZNP, and it was annoying as hell, really thought I’d get a good crack but in the end it was small. Did not want to hold overnight so its back on watch today.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

CRMD

This is the type that falls apart fast the instant you quit watching. So I’ll keep watching…

Target: $8

CRMD

MVIS

Battled this yesterday and came out ok. Told myself to minimize size and hold through spikes, then I doubled back on my plan an covered. Soon after that it faded away. Will look to short pops.

Target: $3.30

MVIS

AMRN

Missed the early crack, thought it was a fakeout, joined later and made a little. Again didnt like it enough to hold overnight. Will look to get short on any quick moves.

Target: Parabolic move

AMRN

MELA

I thought this was dead and over with, just noticed a big spike into the close. Not sure if its based on anything real or just some short covering etc.

Target: $3.75

MELA

HZNP

Frustrated with this one, and struggling to form a plan. Probably should just ignore, I don’t like $20 stocks anyway.

Target: Fading action

HZNP

AXN

This keeps going up while everyone says it should be going down, seems like a short squeeze, will watch for a parabolic to short/swing.

Target: Fast move to the upside.

AXN

Watchlist 3-25-2014 – $PEIX, $IDN, $MVIS, $MNGA, $PTX

While it was a green day in the end, was pretty frustrating all in all. Spent the morning grinding out some solid profits, then went to leave mid day for a dog walk (per my plan). I skipped and ended up entering some shitty trades, that did nothing but gobble up time and mental energy and create small losses. Good news is I stuck to my rules and followed my plan on the actual trades so the losses were small. But managed to turn a good day into a mediocre day by not following my routine. Wrote about it in detail in my journal so hoping it sticks in my stupid brain…

List from 3/24/2014: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Pacific Ethanol, Inc. (PEIX) -NasdaqCM

Several missed trades on this yesterday, not entirely sure why I never shorted it. I have it in my logbook, but I think I just got scared out by the early choppiness. But soon after the open it was a killer short.

PEIX

Intellicheck Mobilisa, Inc. (IDN) -NYSE MKT

This was my loser from yesterday, and really should have probably never entered. I thought I saw some fading mid day, but it never really moved. Should have covered for stratch but I waited and took a small loss instead. Positives were that I set a stop, stuck to it and followed my rules. Good lesson in discipline. Plus there are earnings today, I followed my rule of not holding into earnings.

IDN

Microvision Inc. (MVIS) -NasdaqGM

Almost shorted this premarket, and while it would have worked out great, it was scary at that point. Not sure how good the news is on this, but I’ll be looking to fade it. Not a ton of downside left.

MVIS

Magnegas Corporation (MNGA) -NasdaqCM

I always try and avoid pre market trading, but yesterday it burned me, between $MVIS and $MNGA, I missed two great trades. Not sure the lesson, I still think its wise to avoid premarket, but maybe be more aggressive just go in with smaller size.

MNGA

Pernix Therapeutics Holdings, Inc. (PTX) -NasdaqGM

Illiquid stock, but I have done well with shorting these through the years. I do like the chart and there are borrows at $IBKR.

PTX
