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.

Reversed the AAPL trade, now long.

AAPL bought @ 537.50 Result -9.00

March24

Bought HLF @ 53.25

Sold QID July18 $60 call option @ 3.75 - this offsets the $59 call that I bought and gives me a guaranteed minimum +0.90 profit even if the market takes off again. If the market continues it's downswing then I'll get another +1.00. I still have VXX as well. It's hedging a hedge really, makes no logical sense but I often like to offset trades that are well in the money, it's a psychological thing I guess, I like to know that I win no matter what the market does.

Traded NUS multiple times, got sucked into this thing after huge price gap open, I foolishly traded this despite it's ridiculous bid-ask spread, lesson here is stay away from wide spreads, I got beat up pretty badly. Average buy was 92.55 and average sell was 91.26 , result -1.29

March 25

Shorted CELG @ 143.21 - it's below all the big MAs and couldn't hold the morning's rebound
Shorted LNKD @ 185.00 - well below all the big MAs, stochastics still have a ways to go, broke Feb.18 low
Shorted SINA @ 62.57 - well below all the big MAs, stochastics still have a ways to go, broke Feb.2 low

.

Sold half CHK @ 25.55 - hit the 100 MA but it's now above the 200s and 250MA , this could rip.

Result +0.77

Reversed the AAPL trade, now long.

AAPL bought @ 537.50 Result -9.00

SOld AAPL @ 537.73 . Its volatility has been subdued and I still expect a big move soon as markets usually toggle between big moves and small moves, but I have noted how AAPL has acted during upswings intraday on Nasdaq, it's relatively weak, better get out before my original short proves to be right.

Result +0.23

Bought AMZN @ 344.79

It has a stochastics crossover from oversold, and it is trading above its 200 MAs, on the other hand it has already met its old february lows and this could hold it down for a while, let's see.
