5 Longs and 4 Shorts Next Week (04/20/2014-04/26/2014)

Hey Traders! I'll be doing a weekly review of stocks that I think are poised to beat the markets,  longs and shorts on a given trading week. Then, I will make a daily assessment of performance up until the end of the week. Finally, on Saturday or Sunday I will post the results and see if I was right or wrong in my analysis. Keep in mind that performance will be based on prior week's closing price. Enjoy!

Let's see if this bounce holds.

Note: Fellow Traders, the stocks profiled are merely kept on the watch-list for possible trades. I generally trade only 1 or 2 (3 max), stocks at a time and build positions at a maximum of 1/3 (day-trades) and 1/4 (swing trades and shorts) of trading capital on each, the remaining is cash for possible adds in positive technical moves (I never average up or down). The stop sale is set at a 2.5% maximum bellow the average buying price, it can be set higher for swings at 5% max. Also, be advised that I trade an account that is bellow 25K required minimum by SEC for day-trading. At the moment I'm Prop Trading with the goal of reaching that amount in the short term. I started with $500 about 2 years ago after a long hiatus (for personal reasons) and have already made significant progress as the account is now several 100% above that number. I have a clear goal in mind (you know what that is). To constantly improve as a trader.

Monday's Trades: Sold VDSI for 7.73% profit, daytraded BLDP (+1.00%), holding CHTP for 3.42% loss on paper, (Win/Loss ratio +5.31%  today -11.96% previews = -6.65% trading disadvantage).
Total Trades 72
Average winner +4.39%
Average looser -3.82%

Remember guys; Plan your trade and Trade your Plan! Establish an R&D Process, create daily trading routine and follow your rules, do not stray from them. Use Solid Money Management (cut your losses fast). Finally, trade your plan like a robot, do not rationalize, if you do, you're probably in trouble and in the wrong side of the trade.
