Hello. My name is Jack. I don't know how I will do at this, since I just began actively trading about 3 weeks ago. But time will tell. I am starting this journal here in hope I will get some feedback from anyone with suggestions or ideas to improve my trading. So, here is how I will work this journal: First, I have to say, I really like watson1's simple rule to enter the stock on the next day's open. So I will list that as a rule too. I am looking for stocks that will move by 4%, ideally within the next 1-5 days. So, I will consider the stock a success if it can reach a 4% return. This 4% is based on the last close. So if a stock gaps open, then the effective return will be reduced by the gap. The stock will be monitored either until it reaches the 4% goal or is stopped out. Here is my list of trades for Monday, September 19th. The format is (last close, stop, tentative entry*). These are all buys (long): GET (48.64, 44.4, 48.12) VRTX (19.40, 16.73, 18.93) BRY (64.99, 58.60, 64.32) ABCO (53.0, 50.30, 52.50) CERS (8.31, 6.70, 8.07) NTO (2.91, 2.60, 2.86) MHX (9.30, 8.80, 9.28) AGII (26.66, 23.90, 26.15) SAFT (37.07, 34.44, 36.65) NMTI (11.22, 9.32, 10.92) The list won't usually be this long. *The tentative entry is the price I would "ideally" like to enter the trade, to minimize potential losses. However, for the purposes here, it can be ignored, since the trade results will be based on the last close. I appreciate any comments. And as I said, I don't have much experience (my personal account is quite small), so any advice is welcome. Thanks for reading.
