Been away for awhile

I have stopped trading. I found that I was not only trading stocks , but I was in reality praying to the God called Greed and Wall Street. The amount of trading loses, bad trading, sleepless nights are in fact proportional to the depth of my prayers to this false god. Anger, resentment to others and jealousy only helped to lead me further away from my God given abilities to trade correctly. I will return to trading when he has changed my purpose; to trade for the greater good, and not my selfish pride. I had become an ungodly steward of His blessings. There is a spiritual connection in trading and I'll return to trading when my soul hears the words "it's time."

I hope to someday to return as a teacher of trading for the Kingdom.

ADSK Short trade

Short trade in Autodesk (ADSK) this morning. Profit target was the 100% line of the opening 10min range. I left money on the table, but I am not trying for home runs anymore. Ted Williams made it into the Hall of Fame batting just over 300.

Fridays trades. FXCM Inc, Facebook Inc, small profitable week.

Not much trading for me this week. EOW was still profitable although somewhat small. I am fighting two bad trades that I can't seem to get myself out of, but more on that later.

I was at a stop light and saw a tweet from StockTwits that FXCM Inc, (FXCM) had resumed trading after hours. Placed a limit buy and close limit sell order with very small share size. It hit and I won. Small profits add up.

Facebook Inc. (FB) trade was a try on the long side. Was hit on the pullback, but my short Put option won too. Small profitable trade. 
See sidebar for trade results.

Merry Christmas traders

May the Joy of Christmas
touch all who come here 

Merry Christmas  

 "And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, 'Fear not: for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.' And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.'"
That's what Christmas is all about

Alibaba Group Holding Limited (BABA), The UGLY LUCKY TRADE

Short trade closed on stop small loss.

The Good, Bad and Ugly. Dunkin Brands Group Inc, McDonalds Corp, Alibaba Group Holding Limited (BABA),

Here is a stock trading story about the good trade, the bad trade and the ugly one.

Dunkin Brands Group Inc, McDonalds Corp, Alibaba Group Holding Limited (BABA),


Dunkin Brands was the best trade of the day. Covered at 1st profit target and held though the push below 2nd profit target. Right to plan. 

Here is a case of not setting your stops close enough. I let it run away more then I should have on the 2nd and 3rd short attempt. I really learned my lesson when I looked at the % review of my trades on the sidebar. Next week practice is getting out quicker.

Here is a case of not paying attention to detail
I was trying to place a "GET OUT" stop loss. Since I was going out for the afternoon and not going to be in front of the screens. I even noticed something was wrong on the chart with the order label, but was rushing to get out. Checked the phone APP said trade closed. Came home after market closed and found I was now a happy owner of double my original order short.

Lets Pray for a down day Monday.

Just the trials and tribulations of a average trader. I am sure that I am not alone in the mistakes I made today. It was like a welcome slap in the face to see the % numbers on the losing trade against the winning trades, especially on the small share sizes I trade. I hope this post can be of help to others who might be having the same issues. Have a great weekend and be safe.

Glad I kept my stops tight on the first three trades. I should have closed sooner on the last BABA trade, but I am glad I hit the close as she really went higher.
