Today I was unprepared and came in and jumped in to a trade that was not even on my watchlist ( I did not have one as I got to the office 10 min after the market open) I should have sat on my hands and looked for the A set-ups. I have increased size to 1K under 10 stocks and 500 for 10 - 20 priced stocks. I am mad at myself and I hope I learn from this.
Here are today's gappers that I should have prepared had I gotten in on time. There was JDST, LEU, GNCA and FIT
Below are my trades for today LEU
NO PLAN equal to NO TRADES
You get stopped out on a first try, keep an eye on the same stock and wait for the secondary set-up LEU
