@karennma

Trades that don't go the way one expects . Get out with small lose than wait for a bigger lose. Try a different strategy for awhile .

My strategy is
Primary.
Rsi(14) above 50.00
Eam(5) above Ema(12)
Strong Guppy background trend

Secondary.
My modified /*SCHAFF TREND CYCLE INDICATOR of ema(5) , ema(15)
Weekly Rsi(2)

URG is the only trade I'm in right now.

TGB i was in and got out


SB also was in and got out.

@ Mac,
I posted this on another thread 2 weeks:

@ Mac,
Something really f'd up happened to me yesterday.
I'm not going to post it here YET ... but,
Lesson learned!!

=====================================
THE LESSON ---
One PIG I'm stuck with ...
I have a watchlist, so, I only trade a basket of stocks I'm familiar with.
I keep track of Earnings dates.
I had the pig's earnings date on my calendar.
As the date approached, I double-checked it and noticed the date had changed.
(I have multiple sources I check to confirm earnings dates.)
The EC was no longer in February but in March. I made note on my calendar.
When March rolled around, I was excited to dump the pig with profits.
So WHY am I still holding this pig?
The #@)*&!s changed the earnings date AGAIN - THE WEEK OF THE E-CALL.
I don't know exactly when they did it, but suddenly, the call was FOUR days earlier.
The stock had jumped $50, so I checked the news, still thinking I'm gonna make a killing in a few days ...
Too late!
Dirty Scum!

======================================

It did go the way I expected.
What I didn't expect was - (see post above).
I cannot post the words here that express my feelings ...
There's a thread here about personal "rules".
There are certain things I just don't do.
I "Don't change horses in midstream."
If these *!^#$#&^+s* had not messed with the EC date (twice to my knowledge), I would've been out with profits.
Thanks for the feedback, tho'.
Always appreciate suggestions.

@karennma,
I'm having eye problem so I cannot help right now.
=====================================

Sorry to hear about eye problem.
If it's just a "vision" issue, you can get tons of good cheap readers on AMZN.

EDIT:
Can you tell I'm PO'd?
I keep typing messages with typos and leaving them -- as is.
Lotsa CRAP going on --- I really have to force myself to concentrate.

This filter seems to work pretty good. I think of it kind of like the Connors TPS (Time, Price, Scale-in Strategy). Price should be above the MA(150) or MA(200)

I find that price rarely hits Buy5. I usually like to buy at least at Buy2 and below. So for example buy 20% of a position at Buy2. Buy another 30% at Buy3 Buy another 40% at Buy4. Buy the remaining 10% at Buy5. There is not easy way to backtest this strategy. Just analyze the daily moves when there is a minor correction and only buy high relative strength stocks or ETFs. You can buy at Buy1 - just scale in slow and low. I forgot to add - that would can scale out and sell of shares to lock in profits.

Thank you, karennma for the Amazon shopping tip and John(Mac) for the updated T A tips.

karen, I've also had painful losses like you and Mac.
The lesson I've learned is: There is no use crying over spilled milk.
What is done is done.
The more time I spend on regrets, the less time I'd have to find opportunities.
Bad luck and good luck go around and around.
Better luck on your next moves !

Edit:
I just saw dave's filter. Thank you, dave. I'll take a more careful look later.

I totally get your pain, @karenma. You've been on this board awhile, and I'm sure you know what you're doing. Sometimes a person just needs to vent, though, when they're stuck with PIGs - in this case total "suck"lings.

The only thing that is saving me right now is Bitcoin and GBTC. My other holdings are down.

=================================

@ lis,
THAT'S IT!
They're "suck"lings".
They're sucking the blood out of me.
By that I mean, they're sucking income outta of me because I can NOT get into anything else until I get out of these.
That DROP we had 10 days or so ago was a G*dsend.
I couldn't get into anything without overextending myself.
MY rules (and I TRY to stick to them):
- Don't change horses midstream
- Don't overextend yourself.
Unfortunately, I felt overextended because some of the pigs turned out to be non-performers - to my surprise.
