Going to chronicle my trades during the summer as well as lessons I learn... I already keep a journal on my own, but am interested in seeing what kind of feedback i can get here... Brief history... just turned 19 yrs old, started trading pretty much day i turned 18. Account bottomed out a few months ago and has been looking like a heart monitor since, trending slightly higher with the occasional dip because of breaking my own rules. I try to trade very simply. Use limit orders and usually buy pullbacks and sell bounces using 20, 50, and 100 DMAs and very rarely will add size if other indicators (MACD, stoch) support trade. Do very basic volume analysis to guage moves. Anyways, I am very modest when I make gains and very hard on myself when I lose. I really am ready to start making some money though and summer will be the time to see if all my market tuition pays... Been trying a few countertrend trades lately... Went short on NGA today 11.80 and covered 11.73 on 60 minute chart. Finals week and have one more so didn't want to be holding a 1-3 day position that i need to keep moving stop on... plus stock didn't break as fast as I wanted. Shorting VMSI tomorrow at stop 50.89... 60 minute chart formed double top with lower second top. Pretty far ways away from the 20 DMA. That will be my goal, but I will use a tight trailing stop as markets are trending higher every day and don't want to be caught. Might swing HAR long tomorrow... but volitility in general a little low.
