$FB $AAPL

The market was making a good move while Facebook was on all time highs so I went long on a pullback. Learned my lesson though… I wanted to enter on a dip to the 9EMA but I was impatient. Could have gotten a much better entry and made a decent profit but instead it turned into a small loss.

$FB:

Apple broke its downtrend at the same time the market was turning to the upside so I took a long position. Scaled out and locked in some profit.

$AAPL:

It pains me slightly to say this but I’m still gunshy after experiencing multiple red days. I’m demoting myself to paper trading for the time being until I can learn that IT IS A NUMBERS GAME. And for the numbers to work in your favor, you have to play when the probabilities are high. I see lots of good setups and even call some out to other traders all day, but I don’t take them myself. I will figure this out though…

An $AAPL A Day…

So I didn’t post the past two days because I wasn’t here 100%. I did take 4 trades though. 2/4 on Thursday and Friday.

I still have a lot to work on… that I know but the more and more screen time I have, the better I feel about it. It’s not a matter of making money or losing money at this point… it’s about recognizing high PROBABILITY trades vs just trades. Eventually it will get through my thick skull.

( $MU )

Had to take the woman to the airport today. Relative volume was down in the AM session I was available for. Looks like some of my paper trade ideas did play out. Nice strong close. 0/1 on the day. Sized down all trades from here on out. We’re in confidence rebuild mode.

( $MU $YHOO )

Don’t have much to say today. 1/4 on the day. Another red one.

$MU long trade:

$YHOO 1 long, 1 short, 1 long:

Diversification ( $JPM $MSFT $TWTR $C $QCOM )

I guess I can say I finally broke out of my old comfort zone, Facebook and Twitter. Market had a strong down trend today. Two of my losers were completely foolish considering I was looking for the bounce on Twitter. I guess I had to learn that lesson myself… don’t try to catch the bottom because Mother Market doesn’t give a shit how low you think is enough. I was 1/7 today.

$TWTR first trade short, second two long:
