Don't pay dollar to keep 2 cents when wrong. Cut your losses quickly. Trade what you see, not what you think.

Just when you thought the market might make another attempt to break out of resistance, it went the other way once again!


I believe the market is range-bound currently.  It will probably be trading inside the range for the duration of the summer.  Time to brush the dust off the “range-bound” trading strategy book to refresh my memory.  Basically, in a few words, take quick profit when you see it, forget buy and hold for now.

Not so fast!

I’m still going to be holding $LRAD, $DMRC, and $SVBL for long-term since these are event-play.

Today, I didn’t do much except to take small losses on my $CARA and $CCJ trades I bought yesterday.  I also tried bottom-fishing on $AMRN but got out by day-end since it could not hold $1.30 support.

Meanwhile, my port is taking a 1.75% dip from corrections of $DMRC, $SVBL, $KGJI, $LRAD plus day-trading losses from $AMRN, $CCJ, and $CARA.  YTD gain is now a bit over 7%.

From other account:

Mostly cash. Out of $FITX since yesterday. I may engage in short-term swing trading or day-trading with this margin account to see if I can trade the range-bound market.

My 2 cents.
