GIII – good trade but bad entry and exit

Here is a quick review of a recent trade on GIII. I got in on 4/11 @ 18.71 and got out on 4/19 @ 19.16. It is nothing to write home about since I only captured 0.45 out of a trend which spanned almost 3.00. The candidate itself was good and there a nice 5 day upswing to capitalize on, which is what I look a lot, but unfortunately, I missed my entry and my exit, leaving with only small gains.

Review of TradingMarkets.com

I just recently ended a trial of TradingMarkets.com, one of the numerous sources of information on the Internet for stock, options and futures traders of all level. Since I mainly focus on stocks at the moment, this review will do the same.

TradingMarkets.com was founded in 1999 by Larry Connors and is headquartered in Los Angeles California. In their own words: “TradingMarket.com is the world’s largest site for traders” and “What separates TradingMarkets.com from all other trading information sources is that the content on our site is written by professional traders with proven track records of success. Our site includes commentary from a roster of top-notch money managers and professional traders that include Kevin Haggerty, Tony Saliba, Mark Boucher, Larry Connors, and Dave Landry.”
