Rookie Mistake - What the Hell? $$ - $FFIV $APKT $CF $WLT $DECK $CMI and Some others..

I've come to the realization that while my watch list is about 100 stocks, my focus list is too big. I always try to narrow down my favorite 3-5, but lately its been 10-15 causing my attention to spread thin. On top of that I had my worst day in a long long time. Rookie mistake, overslept, thought I had my stop orders placed in which I didn't and ended up puking up my swings at the lows of the day today, all of which closed at their highs of the day and look great for higher places. I had great prices, what the hell was I thinking? Ouch. Live, Trade and Learn. Sometimes you just need to take a beating to wake yourself up.

$EWZ - Brazil ETF Daily & Weekly


Not quite a pocket pivot day, but close. Solid up volume day.

$FFIV - Does support hold?

I would've liked to have seen FFIV hold its gap up day, however it bounced off support 120.60-103.00. Waiting for a better set up to play this one.


My Alerts went off this afternoon that I set a few months back. @SteelerTrader was all over it all day. Solid break out on above average volume.
