Im not a big trader and just learning the ropes, but I did pretty well with LEE, bought some $1.78 before earnings report. Sold yesterday @2.22.

Usually I invest long term and only buy stocks which I like to hold for 5 years of more, but I also play with 10% of my account and if even if I make 5% or less on the trade I'm happy about it.

Have no clue what I'm doing, but these are the first stocks I have made money off of so far, until they tank again.

Bought GLBS for a cost basis of $0.20 a share, last price $0.66 a share.
Bought PGNPQ for a cost basis of $0.35 a share, last price $0.65 a share.

I could list the losses but way to many. Looking forward to following this thread and getting some tips/insight on how you guys do it.

Why you sell at the loss?
Game is buy low sell high.
And for starters like you and me is not recommended to trade on stocks with more than 3 letters.

Some market advice for you all.
I moved my 401K into cash yesterday, so whatever you own, double down now.
Borrow from all of your friends and family if you have to, hit up your home equity's.
This is a once in a life time opportunity to double your money in a matter of a few days

In all seriousness, I'm Cash in ALL of my accounts right now.
It was a good run, but I think I will sit on the sidelines for a little bit.

How much lower can they really push this stock down? Dropped 26% today so far?!? Where is the bottom?

Finally got some upside on the VXX. Probably not going to last but nice to quit taking it in the shorts every day.

Having a tougher time with this one...Was thinking earlier that MUX might be a bit frothy at these levels as gold was green, but MUX was dropping. That feeling has waned a bit, though, but the miners have been leading the metals (which is usually a pretty good sign that gold is going higher).

I did put a order in under my Rollover IRA for 1250 @ $4.28...may/may not hit, but not too worried about it. $15k sitting in cash in that account.

Nobody goes broke by taking a profit!

I guess someone was in line at $4.53 before me as my order didn't get filled...

Im still holding out. It kept failing the last few days and had a tough time breaking through 12. Going to see how it plays out next week but hope for a nice drop to $11.

Good Luck. I thought it might run lower once it broke 12, but I was wanting to lock in a profit, and I tend to get a little anxious on the short side.

Sell order MUX at $4.55

Here's a little Bloomberg article featuring Rob McEwen...it's a great buy/hold stock (I am still holding a good bit even though I'm "trading" it here/there.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articl...p-bigger-gains

CEO Paid $1 a Year Bets Smaller Miners to Reap Bigger Gains


Rob McEwen is paid $1 a year, doesn’t receive bonuses, yet his financial success is tied more closely to his company than any other mining chief executive in Canada.

Now the largest shareholder in C$1.69 billion ($1.31 billion) McEwen Mining Inc. is betting his gold producer and other smaller competitors will reap more gains from the next commodities upswing than debt-laden behemoths dominating the industry.
