Trading Journal #164
Tuesday, May.02, 2023 – Trading Journal
9:30-10:00m: Started the day buying TSLA and GOOGL Calls but closed GOOGL for some losses as no momentum and ride TSLA Calls for +70% gains.
10:00-11:00am: scalped shorts with AMZN Put scalp and flipped short into TSLA for a fade from highs with PUT scalp for +60% gains.
10:00-11:00am: scalped short QQQ with Puts for +50% gains and scalped bounce up with Calls for another +50% gains.
After 11:00am: scalped oversold bounce on SPY Calls for +60% gains and done.
End of Day emotions: Today was great morning cash flow with TSLA Calls +70% and after 10am the shorts on AMZN TSLA gave some more great cash flow. The SPY oversold bounce also gave an additional cash. Altough took some losses on GOOGL (again…) I was able to get my money back (and way more) following my trading plan and staying flexible with open mind ahead tomorrow FED day. Overall and considering its a FED week, I’m very happy with cash flow and risk management. Need to keep my focus and repeat the process over and over again!
