Trade review 4-30-13

I got a few picks right on this day...



A gap up just over the trigger yielded an entry on the 2nd candle. A retreat held the flat line and it reversed and kept going much of the way, profiting for longs. Closed up almost 8% today.


A gap up triggered early after the noise candle, with a pullback holding the flat line. It resumed a climb until lunch. It fell steadily until lunch, moving sideways the remainder ending up almost 2% today. A win.


A narrow win likely for shorts off a gap down debut rose on 2 candles, then fell. Going under the open for entry, it bottomed near lunch, rose a bit then moved sideways into the finish, red by over 1.5% today.


A perfect short on the 6 fail. A gap up rose initially, soon reversing under the open and flat line for entry. It bottomed in the afternoon, rising slightly into the finish, which was south by over 3.5% today.



A loss either way, since early weakness closed above likely entry and the reversal to go long featured an entry point around where it ended, so with commissions it's a loser. Ended up over 1% today.



A no play push from a gap up at the hod which fell from the noise candle. Never triggering, it fell all session, closing down over 6% today.


A clear gap up moved sideways early and could not close a stick under the initial lows. It gradually rose until near lunch, whereupon it moved sideways, closing up over 2% today.
