Bought VXX @ 43.70

I expected an Janet Yellen speech volatility spike so bought VXX and entered an exit at 44.40 for a quick scalp.

Sold VXX @ 44.40

Result + 0.70

Bought TWC @ 137.00

Doji candle yesterday, bounced off low stochastics and support and over the top of the doji day. Still long a call option expires tomorrow, as it's a stock that can move on news regarding the offer. Targetting 139.50.

Bought MSFT @ 40.03

This is just a simple breakout trade, the normally dead MSFT is actually moving a bit recently, watching the L2 I could see a wall at 40.00, after breaking through it slowly followed through to my target based on expected range repeat.

Sold MSFT @ 40.55

Result +0.52

March 3. Bought QCOM at 74.40.

I had a limit entry which got filled in the spike down on bad news. I was confident the area would hold based on 3 months of price consolidation between 72 and 75 . Targeting 80.50 based on fib extension.

My patience was rewarded here waiting 3 weeks for an exit that made sense based on a repeat of the previous swing up. But I only took a small position on this as I am an ant and very risk averse.

Sold QCOM @ 79.00

Result +4.60

Sold TWC @ 139.50 right on the open. I usually leave my limit orders on in the aftermarket and premarket.

Result +2.50

Bought TWTR @ 49.75

Very oversold and so looking for a bounce, however it still looks weak and I think I'm going to take a loss on this today.

This week's SPY scalping :

Bought total $140,211
Sold total $140,258

Gross +0.47 , 8 trades.
Net +0.31 after commissions

That's 0.04 average gain per trade, not worth the effort, but I love to scalp so let's call it a hobby... with potential.

Sold @ 49.94 , it had a lower high and then broke $50, threw in the towel.

Result +0.19

March 21 , entered some new positions in the afternoon:

Bought CHK @ 24.78
Bought JBHT @ 70.63
Shorted PM @ 81.03
Shorted AAPL @ 528.50

CHK: pulled back all the way down to the 250ma (250 trading days in a year) and bounced off it making it a double bottom with the Feb. low. I'm only looking for a small move on this as it's under both 200MAs.

JBHT: very oversold and looking for a bounce , but by the end of the day it looked a bit sick, I'm prepared to take a loss on this one, ideally if I can stay until the end of day to see what the final candle looks like then I can avoid these back-flippers, but since I live in Japan I have to go to bed way before close of day.

PM: it's below all the MAs and is in a bear flag.

AAPL: as everyone knows this thing is going to explode one way or the other - it's coiling up. Looked like it was going to be to the downside when I placed the trade, by the end of the day it looks very bullish with that nice hammer closing at it's highest close for the week and just below it's upper wedge trendline. The general market has a bearish close so APPL will have to buck the trend to prove me wrong, of course AAPL might lead the Nasdaq out and up in which case I'll reverse the trade.
