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.

LIVE

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

LIVE

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.

Royally botched trading $SPEX yesterday, bought it in the morning then sold for like .10 cents. After that it went up a dollar… Fought it all afternoon trying to short and ended up basically flat on it. Wow do I struggle holding winners on longs, especially when they are up as much as this one. Had I held from the morning buy I could have sold for HUGE profits overnight. Then could have spent the afternoon doing something other than forcing shorts.

SPEX

Big spike pre market and now seems to be settling back. I’ll be looking to fade this, but only in the afternoon. I won’t force anything early.

SPEX

LIVE

Still no borrows for me, $IBKR has had every borrow I have wanted for the last couple months I got lazy changing brokers. Looks like I need to revisit that.
