Today I shorted EMGE from $2.69 to $2.20 on 1000 shares and had another, tiny, trade. The big trade was me following a TimAlert trade alert from Timothy Sykes. I like to scalp those, and I was quite happy to buy 17,300 shares of today’s alert, RODM, at $5.724 and sell them 62 seconds later for $5.835 (net of commissions), making $1920. I have trained myself to respond quickly to alerts. So even though I was making hot chocolate when I got the alert, I was able to trade quickly after I flew from my kitchen to my computer like a bat out of hell. While I normally like to hold onto some shares of TimAlerts, I could not refuse the nice profit I had already accrued.
Daily profit: $2496.00
After I recorded the video I made the following trade that is reflected in my daily P&L:
+ SLD 1,800 RODM false Stock (NMS) 6.250 USD ARCA 15:56:47 9.00
+ BOT 1,800 RODM false Stock (NMS) 6.210 USD ISLAND 15:57:25 9.00
In after-hours trading I shorted SQNM for a lousy $20 profit:
+ SLD 500 SQNM false Stock (NMS) 3.000 USD ARCA 16:35:56 2.50
+ BOT 500 SQNM false Stock (NMS) 2.950 USD ARCA 16:37:46 2.50
