Watchlist for 7-27-2015 – $ITEK, $SLTD, $CALA, $RBCC, $NTLS, $VLTC

Today’s Plan:

Travel day on Friday so no trades, looks like I missed some solid action on $ITEK. Glad to see more true POS pennystocks in play, while I was green last week it was annoying trading $GPRO, $FIT, $PYPL etc. Every stock on watch today is a POS. Thats how I like it!

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Inotek Pharmaceuticals Corporation (ITEK) -NasdaqGM

Though I’m sure plenty will make money I’m going to try and avoid this out of the gate. Ideally it squeezes first thing, then fades all day. Will devise a plan to try and set risk on a HOD type setup.

Target: Fade after spike to new highs.


Solar3D, Inc. (SLTD) -NasdaqCM

Watching for a spike to get short into, ideally squeezes out weekend shorts.

Target: SS @ $4.20 with a risk on $4.50


Calithera Biosciences, Inc. (CALA) -NasdaqGS

Target: Looking to short spikes with risk on $10


Rainbow Coral Corp. (RBCC) -Other OTC

Illiquid OTC stock, but how can you NOT want to short an aquarium coral company that has moved into some sort of bio 3D printing blah blah, and is up like 600%!?!?

Target: $7


NTELOS Holdings Corp. (NTLS) -NasdaqGS

Target: Short pops with risk on Friday’s high.


Voltari Corporation (VLTC) -NasdaqCM

Last on my watch list on purpose, I try to ignore these types because “everybody” is watching it. Mainly keeping on radar.

Target: Pop’s to $8.50 risk on $9.00


Watchlist for 7-22-2015 – $CALA, $EXEL, $FRO, $FIT, $AAPL, $FB, $PYPL, $LOCK, $GPRO

Today’s Plan:

A lot like yesterday, thin on pennystocks, I’m hoping to avoid $FIT, $AAPL, $FB, $PYPL, $LOCK, $GPRO and all the other nonsense. I have a full day to trade today, but concerned I should do other things as opposed to try and force these setups.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Calithera Biosciences, Inc. (CALA) -NasdaqGS

Yikes a potential LONG setup??? Trying to apply some of what I’ve rewatched on Textbook Trading. For some reason this strikes me as the sort that could gap down from the run yesterday, then make a move to red to green.

Target: ABCD type setup


Exelixis, Inc. (EXEL) -NasdaqGS

Gapping down, but hoping for spikes.

Target: $6


Frontline Ltd. (FRO) -NYSE

I’m watching but this has to get crazy parabolic or else it gets ignored.

Target: Big para move


Watchlist for 5-11-2015 – $ICLD, $VLTC, $PTBI, $YELP, $GEVO, $CALA, $TASR, $CHOP

Today’s Plan:

Running low on time, took the kids to school this morning. All these are my standard, short into pop’s strategy. I’ll post more detail if I get caught up.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

InterCloud Systems, Inc. (ICLD) -NasdaqCM

Target: $4.00

$CALA – Trade Notes – 5-8-2015

$CALA meh pays for lunch and dinner…

A photo posted by Timothy C. Bohen (@tbohen) on

Type of Trade: Low float runner

Initial Entry: $13.70

Plan: Fade all afternoon stop on $14.00

Entry Notes: Liked that it gave me a defined risk at $14, while it is low float, it is not churning through the float with high volume like recent runners. Figured I’d try the fade. Add under $13.50


Add Notes:

Update: Pulled hard, covered into it, I have steaks on the grill so I’ll take the easy profit.

Partial Exit: $13.31

Final Exit: $13.64

Closing Notes: Only got a partial fill at $13.31 so I waited a couple minutes, crappy closing price but it was only a couple hundred shares. Again my lack of conviction shows, but its Friday and as mentioned above I’m trying to eat lunch.

P/L: $290.72

Watchlist 12-18-2014 – $CALA, $CUBA, $FRO, $CERS, $SRNE, $ADXS,



Annoying day yesterday, good news is I kept to my stops and all losses were small, but it was a death by a thousand cuts kind of day, traded $SRNE for solid profits, but then gave it all back going in and out of $TASR non stop. Today and the next few days I’m going to focus on patience. I have been rushing and impulsive lately, not sure why. My sleep this week has been very poor so I wake up on edge and trying to smash. That is not what works for me, I’m much better waiting for stocks to come to me. Perfect example is yesterday in $TASR, none of my entries were very good, I made money, then gave it back, back and forth all afternoon. Put me in a very “vengeful” mood which is never good in trading. I don’t like making 10 trades a day.


Scary low floater, almost entered late day but never got filled, thank goodness it spike hard into the close. I will be watching for a parabolic entry, but this stock scares me right now. Entry watch: $26.90-$27



Everyone is short this, good chance it dumps, but I’m not going to get stuck in the front side. I’ll wait for a hard short squeeze type entry. Entry watch: $9.50



Up pre market, like this setup, but want a spike. Entry watch: $2.70



Like this as an all day fader, will be watching spikes, or if it goes sideways all day I’ll set risk on HOD. Entry watch: $6.00



Did ok on this yesterday, shorted around 10AM yesterday and it dropped to the $7.80’s, I covered into that because I was distracted with TASR. I thought it was going to pull all day, but got lucky that I didn’t get squeezed. But I think it mostly held up because of the wacky market yesterday afternoon. Entry watch: $8.30’s



Looking to short a pop for the fade back. Entry watch: $5.10
