This week was a great example of how important patience and trade management are… most of the set ups were winners this week but I ended up with a losing week due to some poor execution. I sold my winners early and held losers too long… time to get back to basics. I am happy to be done with the low volume/short weeks and looking forward to starting the new year strong!
$ES_F: Winner. Played out just as expected
$AMZN: Winner. Never made the move lower, I went long just in time. A 5.6% move from low to high
$BABA: Winner. I entered shares around $218 and caught a nice bounce to 243, a 15% move. I am holding still and expecting more upside.
$EBAY: Winner. I took a trade on $EBAY in the trading group and got out just in time for a decent win.
$FB: Winner, a 5.5% move from low to high. I didn’t take this trade but congrats to those who did.
$MSFT: Winner. This set up played out just about perfectly. Bounced right off the .382 on Friday.
$NFLX: Winner. Caught this for 100% profit in the trading group… sold too early still. This count has been playing out perfectly
$RKT: Winner. I ended up taking a loss on my trade, but not due to the failure of the set up. I entered too early and got stopped out before the 6% move…poor execution on a great set up.
$SPCE: Loss, sliced through my invalidation level. Tough loss as I was very excited about the set up.
I will be posting new set ups tomorrow so keep an eye out for the post. Also, I will be doing a $5k challenge to start 2021, weekly updates will be posted in this newsletter.
