Trading Journal #67
08:41 am: “Futures red to start the week as we have a shortened trading week due Thanksgiving, market will be closed on Thursday and early close on Friday, so expect a low volume week.
08:42 am: “Morning focus on gapping down stocks to see if hold the morning print and go red to green OR fade lower into last week lows.
- AMZN AAPL: I started the day looking for a bounce up, so I took some Calls but momentum stalled and no follow through so I closed and focus on other stocks
- DIS: big gap up day and I let it fade a bit and tried to buy the lows, but sellers were stronger so I step aside and forget it
- NVDA saw some bull flow early, so I took some cash that gave me great cash flow, but momentum stalled at 154s, so I locked my gains. I still tried to fade it, but not easy so I locked small gains on those shorts and step aside
- GOOGL took some short as stock was fading on day 2 pullback but closed a bit too soon. Still nice cash flow
- KO saw some bull flow so I jumped on KO calls for nice cash flow
- IWM AMD TSLA I tried to play a bounce up after 11am, but it was not easy so I closed and went back to cash.
- XOM saw oil jumping up after some OPEC news, so I took a scalp long for nice cash flow

Loss review: I took some losses as the market was slow and choppy but I did good closing trades fast to avoid a bigger loss.
Key Takeaways: You never know what’s going to happen next. When you are trading, you take action and don’t think too much… IF momentum stalled, you close trade, step aside and re-evaluate it later
