Did you short that gap lower?

 

BTW do you find MACD useful considering you already have MAs on your chart?  I personally find the MACD to be too noisy.

Yo, no I got out as in the image above.  +£13 and pence.  I think we've talked about this in the past.   I recently mentioned it with Dschenk too.  If i see profit, I take it.  I don't play long.  So when i saw 1:1 on a slow moving target, even though I had it to go lower, I took it.  There was about £40 for me in that drop I think.

I don't really know how to use MA....Who am I kidding.  I don't know how to use MA lol.  MACD sure, give me an idea of volume either side of the average....doesn't it?  

I read the chart.  That's it.  The indicators are there in hindsight.

Are the green orders your manual entries and the red crosses your sells?  If so I would be interested to know your rational for buying and selling at those points.  Towards the end you have a big bull run, and I cannot understand why you would be closing in and out of that so much when you could let it run.

Yes, green are manual entries and red crosses sells

Remember, the big bull run towards the end is only visible in hindsight :D 

My rationale was to enter whenever there was a small pullback and then a 1min candle making a new high. And then I sold as soon as I could once in profit, typically every $20ct move. That was £6 of profit every trade. Done that 10-12 times or so

Although also have to say, if one of those positions went against me, the daily profit would've likely been gone. So will have to see in future how this scalping with high position sizes works out

@dmedin If so then your Stop would also need to cover the possibility of a Spike to Retest Resistance.  You'd still be playing for a 1:1 but over a full day.  If I'd left this one to Drop to R1 (I know, Hindsight) I might have made £40, If i left it for another 6 hours or so, I'd have made another £40 roughly.  The time vs reward doesn't add up.  My target Limit was around the R1 point.  Knowing that it would likely hit it and Reverse is my reason for getting out with Profit.  If I was watching further i might have been convinced to go Short again at R2, but it was a slow mover at this point.

Wondering what you see here and how you would have carried on from my post yesterday. :D

@nit2wynit  Definitely, I have an issue with coming in too late.  The point I was making about the gap at around 15:00.  If I had missed that gap, the most sensible thing would be not to enter a trade.  Have to wait for strong signals and not try to 'compensate' which almost always means coming in too late. 

Yeah so basically I would have gone short if I had been trading and saw the gap down, and held it.  But if I came in later in the day and missed the gap I wouldn't have traded that one at all.

I'm going to sound like a right tool here; Which Gap are you talking about? :D lol

To be honest @dmedin I found this after I'd already called it A Day.  I looked at the Bull Candles and figured this didn't want to go up at all and was fighting to come down.  I'd had such a great Win already the £13 risk was OK to me.  But my Limit was actually below the R1.  If I'd walked away it woul have Stopped me out on the way back up.  you just can't tell.  But one thing I know is the longer you're in  the game the more it can reverse.  Take profit when it there.

@nit2wynit This gap low is very bearish, I would enter short here and keep a stop somewhere above (in the gap) and then gradually move my stop lower to lock in profits.  😎

Oh, i see.  I figured that was simply missing Chart Info :O

I didn't have the chart up.  I found it and went straight in.  It was already down from this point by then.

Tell me then, if you got in where you've stated at the Gap, would you allow it to drop and reverse as it did, or take profit sooner?  There' No Way I'd see that drop to R1 and let it go anywhere near R2.

@nit2wynit In the heat of the moment I would have taken my profit here but with hindsight you can see it would have been better to let that position sit open for much longer :(

Well hopefully we can all learn from each other.  That where I got In.  R2 was my Stop @-£13.

New Day today.  get ready for 2.30 :D  i expect to give yesterdays profit away though as i'll be too cocky. lol

Have you had a look at Steve Nison's book on candlestick charting, it is really the bee's knees and essential when you're trading on very short time frames.  There was a nice bullish hammer-type formation in there that portended an upswing.

Ah it's not the candle it's the timing that got me.  I literally found that chart where I got In.  Stoopid mistake.....There wasn't even a green candle present when I placed it.  Usual habit.    Deserve the Loss today.  back to it tomorrow.

Slow moving today.  Obviously there would have been more choice but I can only go with what I see at the time.  Disappointing yesterday to give back my £114 profit from Monday, but gained back another £65 but then gave away another £27.  You can see what I'm up since Monday.  I had a Starting Balance of £1877 so about £110.  Yesterday I let the trade Fail to its Max of £114, but I wouldn't have done it normally.  I basically punished myself for placing such a stupid trade.  We'll see what tomorrow brings.

    • Q2 Netflix earnings preview and share price analysis.   Source: Adobe images   Shares Netflix Revenue Income Streaming media Stock market   Written by: Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Market Analyst, London   Publication date: Wednesday 10 July 2024 17:06 Netflix's second-quarter 2024 earnings preview: the fight to stay on top As Netflix gets ready to announce its earnings for the second quarter (Q2) of 2024, investors want to know if the popular streaming service can keep attracting lots of new subscribers, make the most of its ad-supported plans, and remain the top streaming platform. When will Netflix share its latest earnings information? Netflix will reveal its April through June 2024 financial results after the stock market closes on Thursday, 18 July 2024. Another Netflix revenue increase seems to be on the cards Netflix expects its revenue to increase 16% year-over-year (YoY) to $9.49 billion in the second quarter of 2024 but analysts predict Netflix's Q2 revenue will be slightly higher at $9.53 billion. In the first quarter of 2024, Netflix's revenue was $9.37 billion, up 15% from the prior year. Earnings are also expected to rise Regarding earnings, Netflix forecasts net income of $2.06 billion, or $4.68 per share, for the second quarter of 2024 whereas analysts estimate Netflix's Q2 earnings per share will reach $4.74. For comparison, in Q2 2023, Netflix reported a net income of $1.48 billion, or $3.29 per share. Netflix's net income in quarter 1 (Q1) 2024 was $2.3 billion, or $5.28 per share. Further revenue growth in the pipeline YoY Netflix expects 21% FX-neutral revenue growth in Q2. Paid net additions are likely to be lower in Q2 than Q1 due to seasonal trends but global average revenue per membership is predicted to increase YoY in Q2 (on an FX-neutral basis). In Q1 2024, Netflix added 9.3 million net subscribers, grew global paid memberships 16% YoY to 269.6 million, and increased average revenue per membership 1% YoY (or 4% on an FX-neutral basis). Engagement remained solid despite changes like paid sharing. Netflix sales revenue chart   Source: TradingEconomics For Q2 2024, Netflix forecasts $2.52 billion in operating income and 26.6% operating margin, versus $1.82 billion and 22.3% in Q2 2023. This compares to Q1 2024 operating income of $2.63 billion and operating margin of 28.1%. LSEG Data & Analytics analyst Netflix recommendations LSEG Data & Analytics data shows a consensus analyst rating of ‘buy’ for Netflix – 11 strong buy, 18 buy, 16 hold and 1 sell (as of 10 July 2024).   Source: Refinitiv Netflix – technical view The Netflix share price, up over 45% year-to-date, is approaching its November 2021 record high at $700.99 which, since it was made near the major psychological $700 mark, probably won’t be easily overcome. Netflix monthly chart   Source: TradingView.com A rise above the $700.99 all-time high would allow for the $750 region to be in focus, though. On the daily chart, the Netflix share price has been range bound since late June but last week did rise to its current July high at $697.49, close to the $700.99 record peak. The upside is being supported by the May-to-July uptrend line at $678.42 below which good support can be spotted between the May high and the late June and early July lows at $633.78 to $662.30. While this area underpins, the short-term uptrend will remain valid. Netflix daily chart   Source: TradingView.com For a medium-term top to be formed, the Netflix share price would have to fall through its $626.44 June low. Slightly above this level, the April high at $639.00 would be expected to offer support in such a scenario.
