Decent fade on $AG yesterday. Feeling a little bummed out/down today, not sure if I’ll trade or not.

Watchlist 8-25-2014 – $CDZI, $DGLY, $HGSH, $HIMX, $JRJC, $MY, $XGTI, $FREE

$CDZI

Illiquid but I’ll be looking to short on any fading/weak price action.

CDZI

$DGLY

I’m short bias on this one, but tough to call. Positive news and lots of hype around Ferguson and cops being outfitted with camera’s.

DGLY

$HGSH

Short bias on this, will look for entries under $6.

HGSH

$HIMX

I’ll be looking to buy this, lots of potential upside.

HIMX

$JRJC

I think this is the best short out there right now, just really hard to get an entry its so jumpy.

JRJC

$MY

Another potential buy, looks like positive earnings, but its Chinese so most likely sketchy.

MY

$XGTI

Another potential buy, I’ve made money on this on the long side before.

XGTI

$FREE

Perennial short setup, biggest scary thing is that it is has not cracked yet, stubborn stock for sure.

FREE

Watchlist 5-29-2014 – $SPEX, $LIVE, $XXII, $XGTI

Traded $SPEX and $LIVE for piddly profits yesterday. Trading to quick and scared. These fast movers always seem to spook me out. Had I been more patient and bore the pain of some swings, could have profited HUUUUUGE! Oh well.

SPEX

I’m still short biased, but could have made a killing on the long side yesterday.

SPEX

LIVE

Same comments as $SPEX, just re-read above.

LIVE

XXII

This is my pre-gainers/earnings winner buy scan experiment via stockstotrade.com, not sure if I will trade it, but will track and paper trade for sure to further track this experimental method.

XXII

XGTI

Mirror the comments from $XXII above.

XGTI

Watchlist 5-14-2014 – $DRL, $ICLD, $XGTI, $HALO

While I know non-trades/paper trades are annoying as hell… I did spend a lot of time working in stockstotrade.com yesterday and feel I’m found a pretty good system for patching a huge hole in my abilities. Trading the long side. Buying has always been a weakness of mine because I am so much better at location short setups. We will see if it works longterm, but stockstotrade.com helped me locate $ICLD early yesterday before the big move. I did not trade it because I was afraid I was just desperate to find any long to take. If I locate and find another high probability setup I’ll let the rubber meet the road today and see how it goes.

DRL

I’m still holding from Monday, seems like nothing but carnage coming on this after the momentum goes away. Non stop bad news and the chart looks like it could really crack. Bummer is I never went into this as a “swing” it was a daytrade and now here I am still holding it 3 days later. Pisses me off I went against my original thesis.

DRL

ICLD

As mentioned in the video above, I missed this on the long side, I’ll now be looking for a short entry.

ICLD

XGTI

Shitty looking wireless play, non stop fader until a recent spike. Would be nice to see some more upside today, then setup for a late day fade.

XGTI

HALO

Even bigger than the fuckup of missing the long on $ICLD, was missing the short on this yesterday… Popped out of the open and then faded literally the ENTIRE day. Would have been an easy low stress short. It might go a little lower, but I’m only added it because I’m so annoyed I missed it yesterday. Look for these setups pre market!

HALO

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.
