Last Trading Day of 2015 | Stocks to Trade

Last Trading Day of 2015 | Stocks to TradeYesterday I received an email from a day trader that basically said, “Everything I did today was according to my plan, but then I got short, it ran in my face, I got long and it went down, and I didn’t make money.”

That’s a trader who’s struggling with one of two things.  They’re either struggling with their strategy or their conviction to follow through on the strategy.

So, assuming you have a trading strategy, then it’s a question of believing that your strategy works over time. To think like a winning trader, you have to believe, it’s imperative to believe in your edge over time. Not on a trade-by-trade basis. To get the results, to get the desired goal that you have, you have to judge your results over time.

When you prove you can generate revenue, those small trading losses become nothing more than business expenses.

Pete’s Notes:

  • Much lighter volume trading this week than I expected.
  • The bond market closes early today, full day for the stock market.
  • Be careful getting stuck in a trade today, volume can dry up quickly after 11:30am.

WMT Walmart


Walmart finally broke above the 6 week trading range we are tracking. The stock needs to stay above $61 for the long to be valid. I love the room-to-go up to $66.61.
