Wow, slowest day on the scans in a looong time. Not really seeing anything that interesting. Not a ton moving pre market either. Yesterday looked so crappy I took most of the day off, but looks like today will be a wait and see type day. I’m sure there will be opportunities once the day starts, but I’m really fishing to find anything right now.
Kind of slow day on the scans, so I’ll let things play out, out of the gate. Looks like Ebola’s could be back in play with some news. Same plan as always with them. I won’t go long, but I’ll look to short fading spikes.
Like most Friday’s I will only be trading a half day. Could be kind of a bummer, with all the Ebola news this afternoon could be interesting. But also dangerous, I got in my opinion lucky on $TKMR yesterday. Made a nice profit then had the intention of holding 1/2 all day for a fade, after it would not crack $18.50 I covered, about 30 minutes later the NYC Ebola news came out and I would have been torched. I’ll be looking to short any and all Ebola’s on weak price action. But I will not try and pick any tops and will not hold long. The potential for news is way to high. If I was smart I’d be playing them on the long side, that is probably where the easy money is.
Annoying day yesterday, after saying in my plan I would watch all morning I ended up shorting $SCOK early and got squeezed all afternoon. SUPER frustrating considering I put myself in that position. Ended up getting half my losses back late day after shorting into the close. FUCKING SHOULD HAVE JUST WAITED TILL THEN!! Had I followed my plan it would have been a profitable day instead of a loser…
So, same plan today, even if a great play appears I’m forcing myself to sit on my hands till the afternoon. Call it self punishment. Or most likely I’ll end up with a profitable day because I won’t try shorting the front side of a move.
Late start today, annoying, didnt get my full morning routine in so feeling a little out of sorts. Everything but $GTIM are short watches, but none of them are great setups. I’ll be watching all for late day fades and be tracking $GTIM for a long if it opens weak and then trends back. FYI on $JRJC, earnings are tonight, so good idea not to hold either way overnight.
