I trade stocks that overreact to a catalyst. I take the opposite view to a stock that just had a big one day move. I DO NOT try to pick tops or bottoms of momentum driven stocks. I try to step in before and capitalize off of the bottom pickers or profit takers of a stock that just ran up or got hammered. As I post each trade I will explain why I placed each trade, If you have any advice, praise, or critisism (spelling??) of a trade, then please chime in. Hopefully it will make us both better. Thats one of the reasons I am starting this journal, also I want to end some of the impulsive trades that cost me early on. This journal will hopefully make me think about and research each trade even more thouroughly than I do currently.
