totaly blew the SVA trade today.......i was going to try and swing it...... I dont know what made me think this is a good time to start a swing --- the market is in limbo with no edge, should have took profits as it spiked.... I was in right open.......anyway I put this down as another lesson.

Sold F for a 2% gain....

DPTR may have bottomed ...... for the record I am in this and taking a beating... the good news is the price to book is $7.00 they own a ton of drilling rights... its funny the more I hold a bad trade the more I find out about that company... I did know the price to book before entering the trade... they had some bad news, some well was a dry hole hence the selloff....

Eman, do not do that. It is the older than dust traderís trap. When a trade is not working for you, get the hell out. Run, donít walk. Your trading deamonds are wispering into your ears now giving you every justification to stay in a bad trade. Do you hear these voices? ď Look at the debt ratio, look at this, look at that. I canít loose on this one, it is rock sold fundamentallyĒ You may get lucky and the stock actually turning your way some times. But if you adapt this method, it will only be a matter of when - not if Ė you will overstay a loosing trade that will destroy your account. Donít boil yourself alive like a frog. With every dime down, pulling the trigger gets harder and harder. If your stop was hit, just get out. I wrote this to myself in my trading journal few years ago when I had to rebuild my account from the ground up again. Donít learn the hard way. Wish you best of luck

Walid: sounds like he DID get out of that trade (at a dime loss). Just what you were suggesting.

I have been fighting between too tight a stop and too loose...... If I use the previous swing low I will only risk a small amount but if I use a tighter stop I will buy a larger position...

In my opinion DPTR will hit 3$ by this time next year....... thats why I am still holding.
