Seadrill Ltd Short trade via phone

Had to work today so I was trading on the phone. Small short trade in SeaDrill Ltd. (SDRL.) Open on break of 10min opening H/L range and closed at 50% of the move. I closed it because break time was over. A winner is a winner.

Profitable Short trades SeaDrill Limited (SDRL)

This mornings trading positions were short trades in SeaDrill Limited (SDRL.)  I was trading 200 share blocks today. I am trying to step up my share size and learn to trust my trading system better.



1st trade I waited for a break of the first candle that closed below the opening 10min range play. I hit the 50% target of that move with first 100 shares and then closed on pullback.

2nd trade again was on break of the 100% move line (or 2nd original profit target) and shot for the .31 line that I drew out from yesterdays chart. Profit target hit and closed full trade on pullback.

Here are my charts as I went though the trade.

GOT LUCKY. Alibaba Group Holding Limited (BABA)

Left so much on the table, but why a $15 profit in Alibaba Group Holding Limited (BABA) is more then I deserve. Trade open yesterday and I fell asleep only to be woken up by the closing bell. I then held a position overnight. BABA was nice to me today as she fell hard after open and I closed the short when my stop was hit at a prior swing low. BABA went on to laugh at my tiny profit by falling $3 more. I am happy not to have a loss, but I hate being lucky. My SDRL trade (see post below) was thought out and planned with profit and loss targets.

I did get back long with a very small position A/H. So far I'm in the green. BABA is a strong stock for 2015. IMHO

Friday trading recap: Starbucks Corporation, Autodesk, Inc., Urban Outfitters Inc. ,Teva Pharmaceutical ETC...

Hello traders. This week was a small disappointment with the first losing week in 2 months of $42.00. To many small trades to post each one, so here is a montage of the charts. You can see the results on the side bar. I was just not feeling the love yesterday so most trades were only 50 shares.

***** Please note that I am not a big share size trader. But the results are in the positive,*****

 
The Great Wall of Profits keeps getting higher $1 at a time

Almost perfect short trade Schlumberger Limited.

This was an almost perfect short trade in Schlumberger Limited (NYSE:SLB.)  I traded the plan except I got greedy on the first hit at my profit target and was trying to replace the exit with a new trailing stop. I really ended up getting lucky as she did fall back to my target and fell though. I then placed my stop market cover order at my target and was hit. Left money on the table , but I wasn't trying for the whole 100% of the move down on and very strong up day.  Profitable trade.
 
 
 
Lesson of the day. When the greed demon starts to talk you into moving stops or targets, DON"T.
 
Because GREEDY PIGS always get slaughtered.
