Trading Journal #149
Tuesday, Apr.11, 2023 – Trading Journal
Started the day at 9:30am shorting twice on AAPL with PUTs for nice cash flow but closed a bit too soon.
After 9:50am, I scalped some AMZN GOOGL calls for a bounce and had to take some losses there. Also took some ARKK lottos but took a loss as no momentum.
After 10:00am, took some INTC AMZN GOOGL but had to close as no momentum.
After 11am, I scalped GOOGL AMZN and SPY that gave me the cash flow for the day!
Overall, was able to get some nice cash flow but it was hard because market acting slow ahead tomorrow CPI numbers. Still happy with risk management but need to improve a bit more. Always a work in progress!
