    Missed out on a great trade in $PTX that was on my radar. Missed a swing trade by a few pennies. That's the downside to having buy points

                                                Only slight consolidation in $MTSN before a bounce higher. I'm back in the trade with a tight leash near 4.25 to 4.30 area.
