To Whoever is Looking: My goal is to get comfortable trading and become profitable with 100-share positions in the next 3-4 months. I would trade in the morning (9:30-11:00 ET), go to work and trade in the afternoon (12:00PM onwards) I expected an initial struggle and lack of stable (good) results, but reality has been more discouraging that I have anticipated. So, I decided to keep a journal of EVERY trade I make, good or bad and post chart with explanations as to why I made particular trades and why I failed. Today, I was not able to trade in the morning (work-related) and made 3 poor trades in the afternoon. Charts will be posted below. ADBE: Saw a clear S/R channel and traded on the breakout upwards around 12:40. Set a Trailing Stop at $0.40. Got Stopped Out at around 1:30PM. Flat trade, but lost on comissions (I pay $8 one way) LRCX: Same S/R channel, same breakout. In at 12:50PM, Trailing Stop of $0.20 initiated at 1:20PM. $0.01/share loser. MET Agian, the same setup. S/R, breakout, but this time an even more marginal one. In at 12:40PM, Stopped out at 1:45PM. $0.033/share loser. I fully welcome your comments/suggestions/nasty remarks.
