  • Thursday June 23 - overnight trading pays off

    The video says it all. Great night for me. I apologize for not updating much this week.

    I realized after this week that the content I have been creating is not as good as it could be. Starting next week, I plan to have MUCH more detail in my posts. I will cover all my positions in text and only talk about certain trades in my videos (I'll also include more details and technicals in the videos). I will share stocks I am watching and trades I am preparing for as well.

    Thanks for being a part of Swing-High.com! Always trade with a stop loss and manage your risk appropriately.

    Happy Trading,

  • Friday June 17 - killed it

    Today was by far my most profitable day in the market. Best of all, it felt effortless and stress free. Only taking good trades is the best approach, go figure.

    Two of my trades were killers today. My short position in RIMM really paid off, and I added to the short this morning into the selling pressure to double my overnight gain. I could have been more aggressive with my selling this morning, but for the most part I am happy that I did not trade it more. My other big trade of the day was another quick profit in crude oil futures (CL_F) to the downside. I will continue trading short setups in crude as my long term conviction is down with a target of 75.

  • Thursday June 16

    Today was an interesting day. My P&L took a bit of a hit, which affected me in a crude oil trade later in the day. After that, I stopped trading. It's nice to see that my decision to hold 100 shares of RIMM short into the earnings announcement is a bet that is paying off. My plan is to hold those 100 shares at least into tomorrow, and add on any weakness going forward. This may turn into a swing or trend trade to the downside for me as the down trend is still very strong; in fact it appears to be accelerating. My target on RIMM under $30 is $20. Hopefully I can cover around $21 before someone announces a takeover or something like that.
