no trades. i was eyeballing the CRS but it never turned back up. RIMM and JVA i saw EOD

epic day. missed it all. i get frustrated when i sit in front of the computer for days and can't find a good setup. i think my edge has disappeared. then you get a great day like this that you miss. it is very unfortunate. any losses over the past two weeks could have easily been made back today. only one setup failed, RKT.

I lacked focus. Need to get my head right again.

I was watching this one but didn't believe.

Only traded WPRT. I have to get back my focus. I had it for a few days but lost it. What a joke EOD with the Q's and SPY. Lots of good setups early today.

WTW: caught this one late. this had a gap of 1.4%, my scans only show 1.5%

AAP: was watching AAP turn over. never really saw a clear set up. I did see a clear setup in ORLY below.

FLO: entry. not ideal for me because the move back from highs was a V, I am looking for a U shape. i guess I need to be more picky. Plus,  this stock atr is only .60

FLO: eod

GME: if this was a gap up I would have gone after it. because it was a gap down i didn't. but you can see the first bar is hammer, pulls back forms doji, then makes new high and pulls back to the 20 with the 20 rising. pretty good setup.

HLF: would have been a good trade.

ORLY: entry

ORLY: stopped out around .59.

PETM: i was watching this one as well but passed it up around the 11am mark. then the red doji around noon isn't ideal. i would like it to be green.

WSW: i think on the 5 min chart, this was a nice morning trade. i am considering seeing what happens in the first hour and half on the 5 min. somedays i feel like hunting for a trade between 11-2 is okay, but you aren't going to get the stock to move much until after 2pm. if you find a good setup around 10am the trade could be over by 11am.
