ok, i was doing really well this morning, then i got over confident and put in a bit short order, thinking i’d catch aapl going back down, however it shot up, i didn’t monitor, and before ya know it I was down 2-3 grand, then I panicked, covered high, went long when it dipped then started thinking it was going to come back down and I sold then shorted again, only for it to eventually go up! again!
ohly crap, it’s gone up even more. i’m tempted to cut my losses and try to go long, again!
thing to remember, if it doesn’t follow normal day trading rules, it’s not just moving, it’s on a run one way or another.
ok, guess what, it came back down. I guess the main thing is to watch when the extended buying ends, and be ready to switch. I got in and should have at least taken profits on half of my shares. but I didn’t and so over time it all came back down, and i was in the neg a grand rather then setting earlier for a profit of a grand.
