Opened and closed 3 trades this week. All losses; but I kept them small. AOL GNTX and PCL

Just sticking with SDS until the market turns for now.

I donít short individual stocks because Canadian Tax law treats short sales as income rather than capital gains. In a down market I trade inverse ETFs. Iíd like to be able to trade the sectors but the problem is very few trade much volume.

Just as I predicted. Out a few cents below my planned stop.

You can only embed images, not websites. The URL you tried is not an image, it's a website.

Click the word screenshot in my post for help. Also there is no need to upload the image externally, just attach it directly to your post.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

WHIPSAW:


Today I made the mistake of entering a trade prior to earnings release.

I have a set it and forget it trade entry. I placed the order last night and neglected to check the earnings date.

I placed the stop limit order at 26.60 with a bracket order attached. Stop at 26.10 and target at 28.60.

I missed the order on the way up, which has happened in the past, and caught it on the way down.

My stop was set @ 26.10 but wasn't filled until 25.62 (the exact low) 1second later. OUCH 1 second. So much for liquidity.

My bad for missing the earnings date. I know better. Just a warning to others that anything can and will happen. A stop might not save you.

Then to add insult to injury it shot right back up and hit the target.

Oh the joys of swing trading.
