08.01.11 Notes to Self

I’m in AAPL & GOOG; had an okay day today.  I would have loved to get in GMCR, which rebounded nicely from the low, but I wasn’t paying enough attention. The market was too confusing to me today. Everything seemed to gap & crap today. I’m staying with these 2 market leaders for now, keeping an eye on things & just observing.


07.26 Notes to Self

Got out of POT (under $3 gain/share) & WBMD (negligible gain) early. AAPL is still moving. I missed my CF entry this morning because I was relying on my memory instead of reading my notes; maybe it was a good thing, because it only got as low as $157.18, & knowing me, I would’ve held on for the target. Either way, I’m not too thrilled with myself for this one.

I’ve been having my eye on GS, but I missed my entry some days ago; watching to see if it retraces to support between $130.5 & $132 to jump in.  I like the monthly chart; I like the weekly so far, as well.

Eye on MON for a couple days, now.

Looking for an entry into SLV.

NFLX broke down, BIDU shot up.  My AAPL & POT are still growing (let your winners run). I jumped into PCLN on a 5-minute & made $5 on a couple thousand shares; up a bit on a pick from Shadow Trader (I don’t think it’s going to fill that gap, though; if it doesn’t gap up, I’m out). I think AAPL is going to keep running.

@TraderFlorida knows what the hell he’s talking about (when it comes to trading).

James Altucher said he’d do a quick Q&A for the blog–well, just 1 Q, but I’ll take it!

Watching CF for an a.m. short if I can get a good entry; not sure if I like the risk on such a high stop (over $162.25). Probably worth it. Or not. I’m probably in.

Why haven’t I bought any silver or gold yet?
