Trades for 2-13-09, and weekly total

My total for the week (2-9-09 to 2-13-09) is (+1.65%).

I’m happy with this week overall, but today’s trading could have been better. I almost went long in the DJIA (long DDM) at 10:01amEST this morning, but we were in a trading range and I don’t like trading within a range like that (see today’s trading video). That wasn’t a big deal though, it was my trade in DOG that was the problem. I should have traded SDS, but I went for DOG because it had a smaller stoploss (out of fear). If I had gone for SDS I would have made about +.85% today. Not much else for me to say today other than I’m off this weekend to AZ for my sister’s baptism, so I’ll see you on Tuesday.

For my Friday post I have a video for you. In it the guy talks about trading forex, but everything he says applies to stock trading also:

The total figure for “Discretionary trading” does not include my paper-trades.
