2. Trade volatile stocks
3. News / fundamental / technical analysis
4. Sell at buying exhaustion
5. Sell at 3% stop loss
6. Use 1:1 leverage

Really interesting looking stock: GWPH.
Waiting for a retest of the $57 level...may/probably will sell out CEMI in the morning to rotate for this.

CEMI slight profit, HIMX flat.

Rethought decision. Keep CEMI...prospects of European expansion has no downside, and technicals show heavy signs of buying. Although I truly believe GWPH is a good catch, will cross fingers it doesn't go up until HIMX sold for a profit to attempt a purchase.

Difficult to hold off the urge to sell and rebuy, but manageable.
