Closed out NVDQ for a loser- What went wrong

Sold NVDQ on Thursday 2/2/17 at 6.21 for a loss. Taking a closer look at what happened here, for starters losing trades are miserable but they happen. But, glad that I stuck to my game plan– i.e. position size was relatively small. One winning trade has the potential this and another losing trade. Bought the stock on 1/25/17 based on the bullish candlestick, high relative volume and ovesrsold stochastic. I was using the low of 6.25 on 1/19/17 as my stop level and looking back, perhaps I should have given more consideration to the gap down below that level which occurred on 1/11/17. Same story from the HTZ loser in January. As a takeaway, giving more consideration to any recent gap down beneath the area I’m using as support. Not likely to take such a trade in the future.

1/30/17 update- bought more AOBC and NVDQ

Have been holding AOBC and NVDQ since last week. Shortly after the open today, purchased AOBC at 20.25 bringing my average to 20.62. From here, using the area of 19.89 (last week’s low) as my stop and targeting around 22 to take profits.

Also bought NVDQ this afternoon at 6.48 bringing my average to 6.85. Looking at 6.25, the low from 1/19/17, as my stop area. Still targeting around 8 to take profits.

3 new positions today- Long AOBC, NVDQ, ZUMZ

Shortly after today’s open I was filled on all three possible longs: AOBC at 20.92, NVDQ at 6.9, and ZUMZ at 20.4. All three were on yesterday’s watch list for displaying a bullish candlestick reversal signal, oversold stochastic and high relative volume.

AOBC- bought today at 20.92 on continuation through yesterday’s high of 20.80. Seems that there is some support around the 20 level which I am using as a stop. If it pulls back a bit towards 20, I’ll consider adding more around 20.2. Targeting 22 to take profits.

NVDQ- bought today shortly after the open and was filled at 6.90 as the stock broke through yesterday’s high of 6.85. Especially like the high volume recently, specifically the volume spike on the gap down from two weeks ago which could be viewed as panic selling. And now large levels of buyers seen in the volume of yesterday and today’s sessions. Using last week’s low of 6.25 as my stop. Will consider adding to my position if the stocks pulls back towards that area. Targeting around 8 to take profits.

ZUMZ- bought today at 20.40 as the stock broke above yesterday’s high of 20.30. Yesterday’s bullish engulfing candle looks like the stock could be reversing and indicates that it may have put in a near term low. Therefore, using yesterday’s low of 18.20 as my stop. Looking to add more ZUMZ if it pulls back to 19.30. Targeting 23 to take profits.

NVDQ- looks to be possibly forming a bottom. Huge gap down and panic selling earlier this month. Interested in a potential long if it can break above today’s high of 6.85. Think it has a chance of getting back to 8 in the near future.
