Only traded USB.
Did consider YUM as it moves decent, but it's spread was too wild so didn't stick with it.

Note: I didn't include the PHG trade in my daily P/L as was trying out a different strategy on gap fading using tape parameters.

Did have a look at HALO long, but missed the pullback and didn't want to chase as it was up a decent amount already.

Too hasty on the CREE trade. Should have waited for the open pivot to break before shorting.

Hesitated on adding to COTY, then it shot up fast and I didn't want to add too far from entry price. So just left it at 200 shares.

Hi jitasb,

Many thanks for starting this journal. Don't get many journals or decent threads on trading stocks, and the simplicity/minimalism in which you trade resonates with me. Got a couple of Qs please:
1) You trading this live?
2) What's the purpose of the 20 ema. Not really explained and can't deduce from the attached charts?
3) Do you start taking trades straight after the open at 14.30 gmt (if there is a set-up) or do you wait say 30min or so for the market to 'calm' down?
4) Why the M1 chart?
5) If I am not mistaken, it would appear you do not re-enter after closing out a positive trade even though the market would appear to be still trending in the direction of your prior trade. Any reason for this?
6) Lastly how do select these critaria (Price between $15 and $100 > 10day avg volume > 750k > daily ATR over 50c > ignore large gappers (over 6-7%) on Finviz?

Many thanks
Dan

Hi, just to add to above, a breif detail of what you saw on the tape before taking a trade will be appreciated as well.
Thank you.

Thanks for reading. Answers below.

1. yes
2. Ema is just a visual aid to judge the trend and any pullbacks. Not used specifically in entries (e.g. enter when it pullback to ema), more of a 'guage' as to how the stock is performing.
3. Don't usually trade in the first couple of minutes. Typically I trade inside the first 30 mins if setup is there.
4. 1M gives me the opportunity to get in on the first 'move' of the day at an earlier price. But aside from that, it is just personal preference as I prefer the pace of the 1M compared to say the 15M or 30M or whatever.
5. Yes that is true. I have mental issue with this in that once a trade is over I don't follow the stock as I have difficulty pulling the trigger again once I have already traded it.
6. Yes, use a combination of FinViz and Briefing.com. Also I save all my tradeable stocks as charts, so I can refer to them and see how they have behaved previously. E.G A stock may be ok on volume etc..but if it is wild and has big fast moves on the 1M then I tend to leave it alone.

Thanks.

jitasb,
Thank you for your thread. There are not so much honest threads from day traders (trading US equities) that share with their thoughts. Please go on.

Watchlist: DECK, EA, EMN, ETN, EXC, FLR, FLS, MYL, SBUX, STX







Notes:

EA > Premise was to be short once the Open Pivot had failed. It then got a bit spiky a few minutes in and spread became a bit of a concern...leading me to reduce and then exit the position. When it failed the open pivot again..I was short again which was fine, but hesitation and fear prevented me from going for full position size.
Overall > Although profitable ..should have been better.

EXC > Premise was to be long on the pullback after the initial rise. It failed to get new high and the tape was looking weak (more pace on the selling on bid) so reduced as it came back past my entry. Then exited all.
Overall > ok.

FOXA > Premise as short once it held below the open pivot and the market was holding positive. The second partial came back to breakeven. Maybe missed a trick on not re-entering as it did remain negative. But I had closed down by then and missed the big fall.

WMT > The premise was being long as it was staying above the Open even though the market was weakening and also some increased bid activity on the drops. The numerous pullbacks caused some shaking out and re-adding as it seemed to be weakening. Didn't have the staying power to wait for the eventual smooth out later in the day

NTAP > Premise was to Short after it fell thru previous days close and tried to pullback. It has been ok in past, but price action was very spiky early on and so perhaps should have left it alone.

SINA > Initially strong but then fell strongly past Open and yesterdays close. So I was shorting on the pullback and looking for the $50.00 level to break, but it held and so I exited with a loss.

Should really have re-entered if I could have maintained my composure. Then the subsequent fall thru $60 was too fast and I didn't want to chase the short

Got shook out a few times, but premise behind the trade was the 16.00 level holding on the bid. It was a big gap down but wasn't weakening further.
