Generally I stick to automated trading. However, for this journal I will be posting my discretionary trades I plan to make the following day. These will be swing trades with a max holding period of 5 days. I will post the stocks I plan to buy at or around the open of the following day. I will then sell the stock at the open the day after it closes above the previous days high for long positions or closes below the previous days low for short positions. If the trade has not been closed after 5 days the stock will then be closed at the open of the 5th trading day. I will also "occasionally" close a position if I feel that market conditions warrant that action. No stop losses are used. The strategy generally picks stocks that are very oversold and due for a dead cat bounce. I am still in the process of tweaking some aspects of this strategy. Hopefully by having an open journal like this I can get some feedback. The stocks for tomorrow are: Long: GPS DSX EV I welcome any comments or suggestions.
