    Last, but not least, added some more AMD at $29.899. Hoping for about 10% gain on those extra shares before I dump them and wait for the next dip. Rinse and repeat.

    Stopped out of NFLX and TNDM yesterday. Short on time so not much to say.

    Just closed my position in CLGX for ~+12% gain (~+$950). Didn't quite hit my target, but with the huge down days we've been having at whim, I feel like it's smart to just take what I got and wait for more dips and opportunities to get in better spots.

    Lost about -$350 on TNDM and ~-$460 on NFLX. Made up for those losses and then some on CLGX as posted in the post prior to this one.

    Just closed my position in YEXT. I'm very angry with myself for letting most of my profit go in this one. I was up over 20% at one point. Having now lost support of the 200MA and the market being more in flux, I decided it's best to just take what I still have (~5% gain +$410).

    I also decided to close BAC for a 1.6% gain +$130. This one is just because of the overall market. Figured before I end up risking a loss, I'll just take what I was lucky enough to get in this volatility. Sometimes it's better to take a small gain.

    Could have been worse considering the close to the week. Seems like High risk low reward market right now, so I may go fully cash for a bit if I see a good chance to close my 2 remaining open positions (AMD,CBT)

    Just closed my position in CBT out for ~0.6% gain. Kept dropping below my buying price and almost stopping me out so I figured I'll just close it while I'm up. Nothing wrong with making $50 I suppose.

    Well, something told me to close my AMD position, so it's done. Haven't had it fully closed other than the day before the election, and the day before brexit. Bought it all back shortly after both. I'm now 100% cash waiting for a nice sized dip. I don't know why I closed it, but it's done.

    Pretty good week last week. Now 100% in cash and waiting for the next pull-back/meltdown. Bring me the discounts!

    Just got in PRGO at $46.151 for 173 shares (~$8K investment). In an ascending trading range, showing a bullish crossover of the MA's. Trading plan below.

    A guy at work recommended ACB and against better judgment, I decided to open a position for who knows what reason.

    Well I decided to sell ACB before earnings on 9/11 so I got out now with a small profit. Shouldn't have got in in the first place on a whim because some guy at work said I should... Lucky enough to make money, so I'll just go back to being reasonable.

    Going back to being disciplined now.

    EDIT: +~$250

    Nice! A simple 12 day move has you owning the same number of shares with an extra $1250 in your pocket. Well done.

    And there it is. Basically at my target now. I have manual stop entered that I keep increasing since I've (basically) hit my target, but I'm leaving it open until the push forward ends. I'm not going to be too forgiving on the stop because the trade was executed as my plan was set up. I don't want to get too greedy like I did with YEXT about a month or 2 ago. I could allow a decent size dip and see if it consolidates and goes even higher, but I'm just going to keep moving the tight stop up. Barring a huge gap down (which I don't foresee), this will be a 20+% gainer in less than 2 weeks. Currently up over 23% on it.

    Very happy with this one.
