Trade review 7-25-11

I got some of these things right today...



A gap up went sideways and positive most of the day, then an afternoon panic followed and a fade on the green to red cross worked for the short. Closed south by nearly 21.5% today.


A gap down at the hod steadily fell all day. It was an easy early fade, that closed negative by almost 26.5% today.


A modest but probable win. After opening on a gap up, it advanced initially. Soon this returned negative for a fade entry. A rebound easily held the initial high, and it gradually drifted down most of the remainder, closing red by over 1.5% today.


An easy win for Bulls after a flat open held the 2 test right on the nose and then zoomed north fast. It kept going up most of the way, en route to a positive close of almost 14% today.



A gap down continued to fall, possibly faking out shorts on the 2nd candle. It immediately bottomed and rose thereafter, eventually closing negative by a bit more than 0.5% today, but probably under the entry price.


A possible fake out stop trigger for longs when this dipped under 3 after the noise candle, though several might have actually made peanuts when it did not redden much and eventually finished positive by nearly 3.5% today. But any entry on more annual highs also lost money. I report my results honestly, a rare thing today.



A significant gap down finished above the open, but still red by over 3% today due to the gapper. No trigger as it never greened or challenged our key level. It roughly held the pull back level, but it was a likely no play.

Daily record: W-4 L-2-P-1
