Automation Recap November 6, 2018

  • Strategy: Bear Kitten
  • Stock Ticker: NYT
  • Entry: 26.41
  • Exit: 36.57
  • Profit:  -$194.14

I was nice and in profit for a little bit, but it quickly went against me and then eventually timed out for a loss. The markets were more bullish the early morning which I believe affected this trade.

NYT Chart


  • Strategy: Bear Kitten
  • Stock Ticker: NKTR
  • Entry: 37.47 
  • Exit: 35.96
  • Profit:  $605.96

Thankfully I had this trade. It really help offset the other 2 Bear Kitten trades today. At least this one was not following the markets. If I had been watching it, I probably would have taken profit after it missed me by mere pennies and locked in more gains.

NKTR Chart


  • Strategy: Bear Kitten
  • Stock Ticker: HSIC
  • Entry: 79.83
  • Exit: 82.00
  • Profit:  -$407.96

This is one trade I’d like to forget. Got triggered into it at the VERY bottom, then it faded back to the close of the previous trading day. Ouch. Got slipped too on this one. I’ll be reviewing my filters to see if there is anything that can be done about this UGLY trade.

HSIC Chart


  • Strategy: Bear Cub
  • Stock Ticker: ABC
  • Entry: 81.52
  • Exit: 81,17
  • Profit:  $64.75

Spend most of the time in profit but the bullish wick came in and almost stopped me out. Ended with a small gain instead of a bigger win. Oh well, a gain is a gain.

ABC Chart


  • Strategy: Bear Cub
  • Stock Ticker: CTLT
  • Entry: 36.28
  • Exit: 36.24
  • Profit:  $16.56

Like ABC spent most of the time in profit except this one started getting slowly bought up. The bearish moves today just were not happening and we can see it in all of my bearish trades today except for NKTR which was doing its own thing.

CTLT Chart


  • Strategy: Bear Cub
  • Stock Ticker: PINC
  • Entry: 39.90
  • Exit: 40.30
  • Profit:  -$150.02

The last bearish trade for today. I actually like the pattern on on this one even if it was sold off heavily in the first hour of the market. There was a chance that this retest was going to continue lower, instead it faded the rest of the day.

PINC Chart


  • Strategy: S Curvenator
  • Stock Ticker: DRI
  • Entry: 108.70
  • Exit: 109.68
  • Profit:  $135.24

Alright finally the bullish strategies. This one is really nice since we got in right before the big pop up. We have a beautiful bull flag pattern here on the 5-minute chart and this strategy played it like a champion today. 

DRI Chart


  • Strategy: S Curvenator
  • Stock Ticker: NS
  • Entry: 25.49 
  • Exit: 25.87
  • Profit:  $223.82

Nustar traded upwards the entire day. The strategy managed to find a nice place to get in and just ride the slow wave up. Locked in some nice gains. If it wasn’t for these 2 bullish trades today, the day could have ended a lot worst.
