ok start to the 1st of the month, with openings doing well, and mid-day trading. yet, i was down -222.50 on DT filters today, in 12 positions w/ 100 shs per trade. i am still learning tons and taking notes for DTs way of trading, and actually thinking about DTs filters and how to trade it and what mistakes i am making 24/7.

back at it,
patrick

ps> nice trading Dustin, and DT!

Here is how I finished. I was up more but did not take profits thinking I would press. Well still good.
Hey Diamond, nice recovery - i like the 3-a-days u been doing. I notice every single stock on yer list came up on the 40+ today. Kinda surprised you took the hit on SIRF. I was in 9:57-10:02 for a quarter - were ya late or greedy;o)

It was worse than that. I got into some bullshit on the internet screwing around and then when I opened up my REDI SIRF was approaching the down 300 which I really don't like so I said I'll just get out. To add to what EchoPatrick was saying part of the art in trading my style is that you still have to sort of have feel for what you think may happen. I really wasn't sure so I figured better to get out of things with profit. 3 times today my intrad day P/L was at about 1200 and I though OK one more push and we start really compounding but it never happened. The real strength of my kung fu ;-) is that whatever happens you will be in the names that move the most. At the same time if they don't follow through......well that is when the trading skills have to take over. Also notice that when I first got into everything I was down. That happens a lot 10 positions down 100-50 on each is like the fee to play.
