Finally, a correction day…


It was interesting ’cause even though it was a down day, $SPY still managed to come out with a green bar.  So, go figure.

With my $TZA opened green, I moved my stop to breakeven not long after the open ’cause I sensed the market wanting to bounce   It wasn’t long before I was stopped out of $TZA.  I was just happy to recover the losses from yesterday down day.

Since $SPY was acting bouncy, I decided to buy the two “Internet of things” stocks that I researched last night- $SWIR and $NMRX.

Both $SWIR and $NMRX are banging its head against the resistance of the 79 & 89 MA lines.



If prices can take out these resistances, it may run hard from here to the upside.  If not, i may have to contemplate taking a losses and look to buy back cheaper.  Regardless, I’ll have to find a way to stay with the “internet of things” stock for the long-ride up.

I learned a lesson on patience today.  After the open, I wanted to buy back some $BIOS. Instead of waiting for its to correct some more before buying, I went and bought when it was still trading higher in the morning.  With the DOW down at the open, I should have known better.  Now, I was sitting on a losses from the morning entry.


I like the strong yesterday up bar.  That was the main reason I bought back in.  I’m going to have to learn to take some heat on this one if I believe it is going up from here.  While today was a red day, price is still on an interim uptrend with price closing above the 5 MA line.

Despite a down day, there were only two stocks in my port that was down:$DMRC and $BIOS.  Fortunately, the rest of my position was either neutral or up slightly which was enough to offset “most” of the losses from $DMRC and $BIOS.  My port dropped slightly by 0.15%..  YTD gain is now 4.15%.

Current holdings:


From my other account:

$TRTC held steady for the day and I’m still holding.

My 2 cents.
