  • Strategy: Bear Cub
  • Stock Ticker: GD
  • Entry: 166.02

  • Profit:  -$82.84

Not really a bad trade, just didn’t play out. GD didn’t want to move lower after the initial move lower.

Fantastic looking S curve, was profitable but eventually the bullish of the markets dragged this one higher. Stopped out 🙁

PFG Chart
  • Strategy: Bear Cub
  • Stock Ticker: SLAB
  • Entry: 47.34
  • Exit: 47.91

Second time this week that the stop was too tight for this. Going to widen it in my testing. This one should have been my runner today…

SLAB Chart
  • Strategy: Bear Cub
  • Stock Ticker: ALGN
  • Entry: 79.64
  • Exit: 80.60
  • Profit:  -$216.79

This strategy normally wouldn’t pick up stocks that are gapping up however it did today. Normally I wouldn’t trade the same strategy more than 3 times but today was triggered into this ugly thing. Going to remove gaps up for good.

ALG Chart
  • Strategy: S Curvenator
  • Stock Ticker: MCD
  • Entry: 187.30 
  • Exit: 185.05
  • Profit:  -$216.02

Now THAT’s a complete face slapping fade. Was 100% wrong on this trade and paid for it. Would love to know what happened to cause that selling pressure..

MCD Chart
  • Strategy: S Curvenator
  • Stock Ticker: ADP
  • Entry: 138.74
  • Exit: 139.37
  • Profit:  $81.25

Oh look I actually made money on a trade today… ADP was a slow grind up, but the move wasn’t nearly enough to cover today’s catastrophe. The big move up didn’t come until later when the whole market moved.

  • Strategy: S Curvenator
  • Stock Ticker: IR
  • Entry: 98.18
  • Exit: 98.55
  • Profit:  $68.08

Beautiful S Curve, bounce off the VWAP support and moved higher. The timed exit was a little late on the move up and we didn’t book as much profit as I would have liked.
