My ST scan turned up ANET this evening.
It will bear watching in the morning to see if there will be a decent entry.
The initial target will be a gap close in the 82.50 / 83.00 area.

Iíll be looking for a minimum 1 to 3 risk to reward.

What I would like to see is an opening range form near todays close.
Then trade a break out of the opening range.
LOD would be my stop and if I can get a 1 to 3 R:R; Iíll take the trade.

A gap open then filling the gap would also be of interest.

Year to date the account has a realized gain of just under 15%.

You can take that with a gain of salt because I haven't posted all of my trades this year and you shouldn't believe anonymous posters on trading forums.

Good advice. My question was more out of curiousity than anything in this case.

Didn't take a trade: The spread was too wide. I was looking for a tight stop and the spread was over 50 cents at times.

Great Journal!

Hey Deaddogs. I just stopped in to look over your journal and I am impressed with your organization and your consistent posts. I will definitely try to emulate that in my journal. You should so if you can get a moderator to move this thread to the journal section. Also, why was that Canadian guy giving you such a hard time? Kind of rude him but you handled it with grace and posture. I will check back in.

Regards,

Ken

I donít know. Just like trading you canít know the why.

I believe it was because I challenged his beliefs.

There were things he didnít want to discuss and when I pushed him on it he got defensive.

You should check out his journal. He calls his trades in real time and gives detailed reasons for taking them. One of the better journals on futures.io (formerly BMT) if you are a long term stock trader. He is very open to explaining his method and how he chooses his trades.

Not my type of trading, I lean more towards price action rather than indicators, swing trading rather than buy and hold and taking advantage of what the market is doing today rather than what it might do tomorrow.

Done trading for the year. 100% cash till Jan. 2015
Moving south to Arizona for the winter.
Did not make my goal of 20% for the year.
Realized gain was just over 16%.

Take these results with a grain of salt as I havenít posted all my trades;
Here are my stats for the year.

129 trades
Win % = 32.5
Break even= 7%
Losing trades= 60.5%
Risk reward = 2.68: 1
Capital at risk per trade was 0.5%

If I decide to post trades next year Iíll more than start a new journal and post in the journals section.

2015

Finally settled in to my winter home.
I like Arizona as the market opens at 7:30 as opposed to 6:30 on the west coast.
Not much to like about the market in the New Year so far.
I scan for certain patterns and although they are giving me some results most of the stocks that show up are in down trends and don't meet my trading criteria.
May have to start looking at the inverse ETFs.

Monday I'll look at IR.
I'm encouraged that price managed to hold support around 60.50 on above average volume.
It also held the 30 ma on a weekly chart.
I'll buy if price exceeds 61.70 with a stop just below 60.15
The initial target is 65.00
I'll risk 0.50% of my capital.

Edit:
I'll put a time stop on this one and sell on or before the 29th as earnings will be announced on the 30th.

IR opened at 62.19
Placed a limit order with an attached bracket order for 61.70 which was filled at 7.56
Depending on price action during the rest of the day I will probably move my stop up for tomorrow.
