A lot of stocks I've been holding began breaking out today.
I'm glad I've been patient. I sold a few stocks that ripped that I felt were extended. I probably should have just held. Now I'm out of them. However, the ones I sold mostly finished lower. It's okay to take profits.
I bought a few new positions and I feel good in that I kept the positions small and I know exactly how much is at risk. I won't let them spin out of control. The market is extended but the action is strong in many individual names.
I made a few daytrades in TZA which were pointless. Shorting is not my strength. Or rather, the market was way too strong... and that ticker is very tricky -- so avoid because the swings are too volatile. Make the easy trade always or do nothing.
