Trade review 4-27-12

I got some of them correct on Friday...



An instructive win for shorts when a gap down advanced from the gun and greened. This peaked within 30 minutes and decayed, falling to and under the flat line and open. This made it a fade in the afternoon, and it fell into the close ending south by almost 8.5% on Friday.


A bare win for longs once it overtook the trigger following a gap up. It fell late but most would have exited by then, although it was still nominally profitable by close to the likely entry. Green by over 1% on Friday.



A curious loss on commissions when a flat debut advanced out of the gate, with the next candle greening as well. It then fell back under the flat line and hung around it all session with up and down moves. Eventually it closed positive by about 1% but that was right at the likely entry price or so, making this a fee loss.


This advanced out of the gate on a gap up. It then yielded an entry long on the next candle which also greened. Then it began a gradual decay, finishing above the flat line and up nearly 8% on Friday, but it was a loss given that the probable entry point was clearly above the finish.



This never triggered, opening on a gap up which moved sideways and then down. It crossed the flat line early and recovered to it, clinging there all session until a flattish close ensued up less than  0.5% on Friday.


A 1 cent gap down advanced from the lod out of the open, never giving shorts a chance. It kept advancing all session, en route to a green finish of over 7.55 on Friday. A no play push.


A clear gap down from the lod advanced from the gun, not giving shorts a play. It kept creeping up, hanging around the flat line, ending positive by over 1% on Friday. A no play push.

Daily record: W-2-L-2-P-3
