Trading Journal #168
Monday, May.08, 2023 – Trading Journal
9:30-10:00am: Started the day buying AAPL GOOGL and IWM Calls and locked AAPL +25% and +45%, GOOGL +40% and IWM stopped -15% loss on 1st trade and -55% loss on 2nd trade (my biggest loser on the day)
10:00-11:00am: scalped AMZN Calls several times but got stopped on slow action. Scalped SPY Calls for +50% gains that helped me get some money back from IWM loss
11:00am-12:00pm: scalped some META NVDA QQQ but took some losses as basically no momentum either up or down
12:00pm- 1:00pm: Scalped SPY Calls for +55% gains.
After 1pm: Scalped AMZN Calls for nice cash flow and after 2pm, scalped QQQ short with Puts for +80% gains and after that scalped bounce with SPY Calls for +45% gains.
End of Day emotions: It was a mix day and very exhuasting with not much momentum to hold the trades longer. Also lots of mixed signals made it hard to hold trades longer. I’m happy with risk management but need to reduce the number of trades when market gets slow. Need to keep my focus and repeat the process over and over again!
