Couldn't resist one more trade before going to the gym. Had to average in, but it worked out, as always. I suppose that is my version of a stop loss - instead of losing, just average in, and then get the h. out at a small profit if it isn't quite going My Way. Day's trading tally would be 1800. Booked.

Market fell apart as I was at the gym though....


All righty, workout completed, we ate, a little (actually a lot) of fun 😉 in the suite and then...down to the lion's den for today's action.

I agree. My trades would definitely be more accurately called Ďswing tradesí than Ďday tradesí. I think Iím going to take your advice and do my Ďbuysí early in the day from now on. This week Iím on vacation and donít feel like trading from the golf course! So I just have one buy... it was TSLA at 669, and I have a sell order in at 681. I havenít checked yet but I think it is down still.

I'm up to check the market. At the moment the bounce isn't on the level of yesterday's drop, but at least we're in the green today as far as techs.

Okay this is not good...the initial further sell off was predictable, followed by the pop up, but now it looks like a second wave of selling on tech. Usually the way this works is that there is a further sell off that takes the shares away from the weak hands who think, Ouch! there is no recovery, and then we roar. At the moment, we saw practically a double bottom. Still, the Nasdaq should be solidly in the green by later.

Anyway, I did just one trade.



I had an order to buy TSLA at 631 for a trade but cancelled it out when I got stuck for a bit in this AMZN trade (initially dropped to 3016 or so).

Okay, as advertised we got that dark greenie going on in the Nasdaq, let's hope it holds.

Where we need it the most, we do have green right now.

So Iím now up on my latest TSLA buy. It was 669. I had sell order in but it expired... would have hit at a profit. Am now greedier. Put sell in at 687 to try and Ďbook $180í.

Just saw my son for first time in over a year. He gets to put $6k a year in IRA, but he has me manage it. So we went on line to check and have him transfer the $6k in for 2021. I looked at what we bought the last two years.... about 18 months ago I bought him 1000 shares of NIO at $1.95. Now that $2k is worth around $45k! Recently also bought him BUG ( heís the entomologist) which has also skyrocketed. Interesting that in his portfolio I really HODL and it has exploded! He has maybe 20 positions acquired over last 8 years and every one is in the green.

YES I just saw that, TSLA is up something like +26 in the pre-. It will probably fade at the open but 687 is reasonable for sometime today, after an initial drop.

Also the NFLX I bot for a swing trade is now +5 from where I acquired it, but I want at least 520 for it and have entered a GTC of 520 for that trade.

If I were trading this morning I'd look for big dips on AMZN or TSLA, maybe GOOGL, and buy the dips. When they open heavily in the green like this I won't touch them, not for trades anyway. By dips I don't mean all the way to the red, although AMZN may actually get red at some point today, I just mean solid dips from their highs.

TSLA both popped! and faded! at the open. More than got your 687 though, eh?

AMZN did go red as predicted but I was too cheap on my order - 3065, and it went only as low as 3067 so I didn't get any.

GOOGL looks promising for a dip buy around 2013.

Okay, so far I was too cheap there too. Put in 2011. Didn't hit.

And that's the way you do SooPoo, as far as DIP BUYING - be patient, wait for the stock to come to you, and if it doesn't, just don't trade that morning at all. Yes, you'll miss some trades but you'll also miss some heartache too.
