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.

I would seriously consider getting out of this trade....it may be above its 200SMa but there is a bearish cross of the 20SMA through the 50 SMA earlier today and it looks to fall now

The chart you posted is for CHK - I already got out of that one. If you mean AMZN yes, I just got out, it was a bitter pill to swallow, but it was trading below its 200MAs and the QQQ keeps dropping so I pulled the trigger upon reading your post. Of course it could rebound back above but I can't keep my eyes open any more. Thanks for posting!


AMZN sold @ 337.94

Result -6.85 , SOAB!

Sorry...I meant to post the chart for Amzn and I was in a hurry and posted the wrong chart...I was looking at CHK before I realized you had sold it...I'll be more careful in future.



this is the chart I meant to sent you...you can see the signal to the MACD starting to fall and how the 20SMA was acting as a resistance to the price and then the bollinger bands were getting tight and the price was falling to the lower Bollinger band.

Sorry for the bad chart

(Don't sweat it, it's all good)

Well, AMZN closed below both of its 200MAs and even went a bit lower after market, it's relatively weak vs QQQ as well, so it's looking like a short now, however the stochastics are down low and that is a cause for concern if you want to short. I think it might get down to 325-320 area this week.

SOme new positions today:

Bought YUM @ 75.25 - wish I had caught this on Friday . Low stochastics and bouncing off the 200s, in a bit late.

Bought TSLA @ 210 - oversold and looking for a bounce. Doesn't look too good actually, probably jump out Tuesday.

Bought SLCA @ 37.44 - cup and handle breakout above consolidation area , looking for 42.00 exit based on range repeat, but it's all blue sky up there, all time highs.

Bought KRFT @ 56.37 - breaking out above consolidation but not strongly, took some heat and hedged, this was just going to be a scalp but it failed to move as expected, going to hold it for a swing with protection.

Bought KRFT June 20 57.5 put option @ 2.45

Sold short VZ @ 47.61 - looking for a small move down to 47.20 based on weak hourly chart , I try to get some shorts in for a hedge.

Bought V (march 28th) @ 211.08 - it was going to be a scalp off of a short-term chart but kept going up so I'm holding for a swing to 218.00.

29 trades (including 3 break evens, 6 shorts), 23 winners , 6 losers , average win 2.16% , average loser -1.27%, average of all trades is +1.45% or in other words $145 for every 10,000 trade. My trade size is usually about $2000, I am a small trader for sure, but if I can consistently win like this then I can increase my trade size over time. Or use options more often. I think I did quite well this month, better than usual.
