August 11th recap

Boring day today for me.

AVNR was a pre-leader. I bought on the $4 cross and sold for a fat profit of $0.00 when it failed to move higher. It did not help that the market was down fairly big today. It would have been a great short from there. I thought about shorting it at $3.50 but did not; I do not like shorting fades of stocks up on news and still way green for the day.

SLD    500    AVNR    false    Stock (NMS)    4.04    USD    BATS    09:40:10        2.50

CHINA was a TimAlerts play. I first played it to scalp a few cents off of TimAlerts subscribers but that did not work so I covered quickly. I held onto 4,000 of my 16,000 shares but covered when it showed some strength at 3pm EST.

  1. Had the same trouble with CHINA. The erratic alerts today screwed up the usual quick drop.

    Actually got a good price on my cover since I was heading to the beach…..

    And, no, didn’t get arrested at the beach….but thanks for caring 😉
