$11,522.58 in 2hrs Trading Momentum
What an incredible day! Today is my biggest winning day of the year and my single biggest winning trade of the year with $10,842 profit on $MPET. I have to admit there is a backstory to why I was so aggressive on $MPET. Yesterday, I was up $3k on $SHIP, and then took a nearly $7k loss and finished the day down $4k. I was very frustrated with myself, as I noted in this video here. I told myself this morning that it wasn’t my job to try to recover the entire loss from yesterday, but to simply rebuild 1 green day at a time. With that said, I also told myself if you see a good setup, be aggressive. I wait for the setups to come to me, rather than forcing them. This is exactly what we teach in our classes.

Choosing the Home Run Setup
I didn’t expect to see an A quality setup today. This gap scanners were a bit weak, and even though $MPET was on the scanners, it wasn’t that interesting pre-market. I saw the headline but there wasn’t much volume, so I looked at other setups. However, as soon as the market opened, $MPET surged up 100% on 12,000x relative volume for a 5min candle. When I saw it lighting up the scanners, I knew I wanted to get in for the break of 3.00. I started adding at 2.90 and kept adding at 3.00, and again at 3.25. I was being aggressive because just yesterday we traded $SHIP on the move from 4.00 to 8.00, and this setup looked almost the same. On $SHIP I only got a partial fill and I regretted not adding more when it was low. So this morning I said “NOT TODAY”, and jumped in with a FULL size position with a 3.16 average. I had just over 10k shares when it spiked up to 3.62 and was halted on a circuit breaker. It reopened over 4.00 giving me a nearly $10k profit instantly. Instead of take the profit, I added $5k shares for the move to 5.00. I ended up stopping out of the entire position after the 5.00 break failed, and net a total of $10,842, giving me my first 5 figure win of the year.
