I am still holding DUG (ETF short oil and gas), ANR (long), PRXL (long) and AGU (short).
February performance on completed trades:
win rate: 60%
average gain: $1935
average loss: $388
total gains: $5806
total losses: $-776
Total Profit: $5030.
Not a bad haul for 7 days of work. Now lets hope I don't lose it all in the coming week.
While I am not happy about the win rate, at least maximizing gains and minimizing losses. Over the weekend, I plan to analyze a few of the trades I made. This type of trade review will become a regular feature of the site. First up will be FSLR. Take a look at the chart and see if you can get behind my strategy
BTW, for those new to the site, all entries can be viewed by going to the trade label or just scrolling down and viewing my Febuary posts.
