Watchlist 5-22-2014 – $UEC, $NEWL, $MY, $TSL, $IGC

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

UEC

Still holding this short, seems like a fucking eternity. Maybe today is the crack day though..

UEC

NEWL

Still watching but not trading this, $IBKR has not had shares to short all week. I should probably be buying the dips, but again, this one keeps scaring me away. Great stock to trade if you werent a coward like me.

NEWL

MY

Still working on my stockstotrade.com earnings winner scan, I found this yesterday at $3.10 but chose not to buy. About five minutes later it popped and ran all day. Frustrating, but cool that I found it.

MY

TSL

Watched this almost all day for a short entry, but it never looked back. Glad I stayed out, but thinking a pullback is due today.

TSL

IGC

Probably my number one skill builder is working on buying breakouts. I bought and sold this in about 5 minutes and made a couple hundred bucks… Could have made thousands had I been patient. But damn I get antsy buying stocks that are already up huge…

IGC

Watchlist 5-21-2014 – $NEWL, $AMKR, $UEC, $CXDC

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

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 3-7-2014 – $ZAAP, $PXLW, $PPHM, $BLDP, $FCEL, $SUNE, $NEWL, $XGTI, $ZBB

Alright, I’ve decided to get back into cranking out the daily watchlists. My trading this last week has been pretty erratic and all over the place. Profits have been hard to produce on a consistent basis. I’m up a bunch, then give a lot of it back. I’m too quick to close out winners and holding on to losers to long. I’ve been putting notes in my private journal but I think “putting it out there” is much more productive. Between a daily watchlist and a daily recap I think its a solid way to produce a more consistent profit curve. Not to mention when daytrading its tough to remember everything you did in a day. Reviewing via a blog is a killer way to cement in your head what you did right and wrong during the day.

Not to mention, forcing yourself to look in the mirror when it comes to your trading performance is a great way to “Be a professional”.

ZAAP

Huge news about something to do with their electric car, I won’t short this, its too cheap, plus I have no idea how good the news is. But should be interesting to watch.

ZAAP

PXLW

Scary and usually foolish to short into $APPL hype, but I’m watching this one close for fading, huge day yesterday and even more after hours.

PXLW

PPHM

I’m short this overnight and up a couple cents, I made solid money on the long side the other day but sold at like $2.20… I also plan on getting back into posting real time trades on Twitter. Not that anyone will perceive any value in them, I just again think its productive to trade in the sunlight. I’m confident one of the reason’s many of the Profit.ly guru’s do so well is because they know they have hundreds or thousands of eyeballs watching every move. Myself I find it much easier to be disciplined and follow your rules when you know others are expecting you to.

PPHM

BLDP,FCEL

These are both $PLUG sympathy plays. I have made a couple hundred here and there shorting $FCEL and $PLUG, but the profits have been piddly. I’m not that interested in $PLUG anymore, but I think the big short could be coming soon both on $BLDP and $FCEL.

BLDP

FCEL

SUNE

Lost money being to early on this one. In hindsight my trade was foolish, it never showed ANY signs of fading and I kept adding to my position. Still strong yesterday, but soon it will roll over hard me thinks.

SUNE

NEWL

I’m to dumb to understand these reverse splits, so I’m just adding this as a reminder to check on it in a few days.

NEWL

XGTI

Missed this solid short setup the other day because I was wasting time on shittier setups. There is still some solid potential here though!

XGTI

ZBB

Similar to $XGTI, I think the good entry has been missed, but still solid potential for this to fade.

ZBB

Now that I’m done, I forgot how much I like making these lists! Its time consuming, but worthwhile and really helps dial your mind into the trading day. While creating this list may not make a huge difference I think its like cramming before a test, even if you already know the material it just helps dial you in last minute.
