10/15/14How NOT to trade. Turning a profitable trade into a loss (Trading with the Average Jay)

This morning I was trying to short PetSmart, Inc. (NASDAQ:PETM) on the break of the low. I entered the trade and placed an exit order just in front of the 50% line of the opening 15min range. I hit the profit target while out on a bike ride. To bad it posted as a loss. I didn't notice that I entered incorrectly, a buy order and was long, not short.

8/16/12PETM (Samurai Trader)

With a big day in the market, you would expect a lot of really good breakouts, but we didn't get any. Now, PETM here isn't bad, but it has some weaknesses that tell me to stay clear for a while. The gap up was nice, volume was ok, but the price realtive line isw weak, and CMF was dropping going into today, and today's dreaded black candle won't help that at all. This might continue to go up, but I would be waiting for some confirmation before getting into this.

5/23/12PETM (Samurai Trader)

PETM was a nice earnings breakout, and is a stock I should have been  alerted to due to it's price relative breakout a little over a week ago. Here is another one that didn't show up on my breakout list, so there is a definite flaw in the system. I looked into it this morning, and could not see any obvious errors, so there might be a flaw in my logic. I checked the breakouts that did show up yesterday, and they were all valid breakouts, but for some reason some are being missed. This has a...

5/19/11PETM (Samurai Trader)

PETM was a pre earnings breakout that failed, which tells me that the resistance it broke through was not the ultimate resistance point.  If the two bottom pivot pints i have are correct (and there is a good possibility they are not), then I woupd estimate the next level of resistance will be just above 46, which is not very far from today's high. If it follows through on today's volume, which it probably won't, then it should break out of this range and start establishing a new one. At this...
