Who's ready to slay today! We got our new cash account at TD with $2k transferred into it from our Roth. I've decided too keep some of our Roth account in tact since any further withdrawals would have lead to a small tax fine. So the plan is to stop the margin account and grow the cash and Roth (mostly the cash account) until we reach our $25k goal). Once we reach $25k we'll be using the Margin account again as then we'll be able to do unlimited trades. The cash account could then be turned into a dividend/swing/inv portfolio of some sort. That's another discussion.

Funny news as well that yesterday we did 1 too many trades and that got the margin account flagged under the PDT rule! I'll cover it today on the recap video.

No trades left for Monday so I'm going to do some Analytical work on my Garmin watch to show you guys what this CPAH day did to me. I really did almost get a heart attack! I felt it and now I know what really went on. Have an awesome weekend everyone!

There's so much good stuff to learn out there & The Garmin watch is one of those tools that lets us learn more about the things we do daily. Definitely love having concrete #'s.

Tomorrow we got 4 trades, we'll be fully back in action, can't wait. But got to be careful as there's no guarantee we'll get another day like today or Friday.

See ya on the live stream!

I just realized this is my biggest green day since starting the challenge (by $9.43) and I wasn't even using big position sizes.

That's what getting #breakout trades will really help with so the better we get with them the faster we can complete this challenge! 3 clean trades today, tomorrow we get 3 more trades.

Let's keep going, see you guys tomorrow!

What a weird little day of missed opportunities. All gravy because days like today are inevitable. It's actually the first Red day of the MONTH! Wild.

We've come a long way in this 25k trading challenge and I can't wait to continue. See you guys tomorrow for some more trading action!

My god there's a lot of near perfect picks flying today. Happy Tuesday and good luck trading everyone!

$CETX 7m MC and 2.8m Float Industrial Equipment & Components | USA gapping 85% big gapper yesterday but watch out because it basically just gave back all yesterday and past spikes did not hold. No new news, just yesterdays - "Cemtrex Receives $700,000 in New Video Surveillance Systems Orders for Municipal Buildings"

$RBZ 11m MC and 3.4m Float Specialty Retail, Other | Singapore gapping 47%, yesterday late trading time came out with news "Reebonz Announces Strategic Partnership With TWIST"

$SXTC 17m MC and 12.5m Float Drugs - Generic | China gapping 50% "China SXT Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Announced Regulatory Approval of Its DNA Exam Laboratory"

3 trades again this time 2 green and 1 red. Building that foundation so we're ready for taking on larger position sizes. This is already our best month in the challenge (better than Nov & Dec combined), $vol is one of my key Gap & Go indicators and all my best trades are ones with BIG $vol.

Let's crank out some trades! Happy Friday everyone!

AEMD 9m MC and 2.8m Float Healthcare | Medical Appliances & Equipment | USA gapping -13% but ran yesterday after market opened 90% one of the biggest runners (still not impressive $vol) did not find any new on it either. Could be a good support line bounce today if we crash below 2 and selling gets weak

NTGN 49m MC and 23m Float Biotechnology | USA gapping 7% was on our watchlist yesterday (a bit of a snoozer) "German biotech snaps up struggling Third Rock-founded drugmaker", "BioNTech to acquire Neon to strengthen global leadership position in T cell therapies"

TLRD 202m MC and 45m Float Apparel Stores | USA gapping 35% "Tailored Brands to Sell the Joseph Abboud Trademarks to WHP Global for $115 Million"

IMBI 28m MC and 7m Float Specialty Retail, Other | USA gapping 80% "Shaquille ONeal Launches Invicta Collection on ShopHQ"
