Good morning this is Clay at ClayTrader.com,
this will be a live trade video where I try to capture
some of my trades as they unfold live.
Market opens up here in about 15 minutes
so let's see what happens.
All right, I have an order at 7.81 here on GSKY
market opens up in about four minutes
so looking like I might be able to get an entry point
before the open.
Yes, got 200, 500 so there I'm in for my first 500.
So we'll see if I can get out before the open,
if not then I'll have a nice little position
before the market even opens up,
but I'll let this run right now
and we'll kinda see how it plays out.
As of now, three minutes until the official market open.
I like that as a first entry point,
I would not mind more than 500 shares at all.
But let's see.
Actually I'm gonna go to 799.
Like I said, I like that entry point.
All right, well I will pause for now and if it looks
like I'm either gonna be able to pick up some more shares
or if it looks like I'll be able to take the profits
then I'll get the video rollin' again.
So I have orders at 7.51 and 7.35 in case there's a flush
out of the opening gates.
Market opens up in less than one minute.
So I'll get the video rollin' again
once the market officially opens.
Okay, the markets are open.
I moved my exit out to 7.90.
So let's see what this wants to do.
It's not movin' that much at all.
So I'm willing to give it a little bit more time.
So again, let's see if it can move down to the 7.51 mark.
So I will go ahead and pause,
whoop there it's startin' to move.
Uh oh, it's startin' to work its way back up.
All right, I'm gonna go ahead and pause.
Okay, it's getting close to 7.51.
Close but not quite there.
Okay, I'm in there, nice.
Let's see if I can get some more at 7.35.
Well now we're gettin', we're trying to get somewhat
of a bounce.
Can it get through 7.50 is the question, which it can.
Let's see if it can work its way up
to a little bit higher here.
I'm just gonna get out there, so $130 loss,
this one's not cooperating at all,
so it is what it is, let's see what else I can find.
Little update here on GSKY.
A situation where that loss feels very, very good right now.
You can see here it just continued to bleed further
and further downwards and I bring that up
because if you've ever had an alert or a trade
where you get out and all of a sudden it goes in your favor
and play the game of ugh, if I would have just held
and broke my rules I would have been in the green.
Well, here's one of those situations where if I would have
just broke my rules and held, I would be that much more
in the red.
So I realize that the human mind likes to always focus
on the times where if you had broke your rules
and then it focuses on those times it would have worked,
but remember, there's also these situations out here
where it wouldn't have worked and it would have gotten
a whole lot worse which is exactly what's goin' here.
SQ though, now making a move.
So I have an order at 64.75,
so we'll see if it can work its way down there.
I will keep you updated.
I adjusted my order down to 64.45,
this is based off of things that are going on off monitor,
keep in mind I have four monitors that I have,
so what you see is just a very limited portion
of what I'm looking at.
So based off of some other stuff I am now liking
the potential at 64.45.
Oh come on.
Give me 36 shares, there we go.
So in for 500 and out there for a quick $50,
but I don't order be talking let's go to 64,
let's see what is that, yes 64.15, just double-checking.
So 64.15 now.
I was debating should have I have gone for the $75
and I went conservative and I would have been okay,
I could have gotten the $75, but oh well,
that's good old hind sight trading for ya,
but let's go down to 64, again 15,
so we'll see if it can work its way down to that area.
So it looks like it can work its way down there,
I will get the video rollin' again.
Okay, I have an order at 98.25 here on ROKU.
I was hopin' for a little bit more of a violent break
on 98.50 so let's go to 98.01 at this point in time.
So 98.01 now.
Okay, I wanted to see more of a flush through 98.50,
it just didn't happen.
And it only went as low as 98.30 anyway
so I still wouldn't have been filled but we'll see if it can
extend its way down to the 98 mark.
Again, noticing some things on another monitor
so I'm at 97.85 here.
So we'll see if it can get a quick little flush
down through 98.
At 97.55, gettin' close here.
Aw, come one, ha ha.
Went down as low as, it hit 97.55, it just didn't give
me any shares.
So never mind.
And you can see right here where it says the low,
and you can see the low 97.55,
so that's why you don't wanna nail the bottom.
Nailing the bottom is nothing to brag about,
because I nailed the bottom there,
problem was I just didn't get any shares.
So the exact reason why you never wanna try
to nail the bottom.
Like I said, I am now at 97.25
and we'll see if that one works out.
All right, it's trying to work out, there we go.
So in there.
For my first allotment.
So let's see what this thing wants to do.
So I'm out for 75.
So 96, actually let me, again I'm looking at another chart
over here, here's the chart I was looking at.
So that green line is what I based the entry point on,
so got the bounce off that.
So and that is just another time frame.
Let's see what is that down there?
And yes, I'm talking to myself.
So, 96.55 will be the next first entry point.
So there we go, let's see if I can get that.
I have an order at 79.55 here,
I realize this seems like it's pretty far off,
but this is a very, very fast mover.
Just a 100 shares because this is so volatile.
So there's the break and you can see that fast down
20 cents on the bid there.
So again, 79.55.
And we'll see if it can work its way down there.
I very well could miss the entry point since this one's
so jumpy but I at least wanna get it documented.
All right, quite the activity here.
I'm gonna try for some here at short at 87.35.
Oh wow, playing total games with me there.
Scroll back and you'll see how the order was flashing
up there and it wouldn't fill me.
You'll see exactly what I mean by that, so.
Never mind on that entry point.
Let's go to 88.15.
Again, scroll back and you'll see
how the, my offer was over here,
but yet it was flashing white which means that it was there,
but not there and just not what I'm looking for at all,
but if it wants to come back up here to 88.15.
Could get interesting, I'll keep ya updated.
Okay, I'm short here at 85.65.
So, let's see what this thing wants to do here.
Put an order down there at 85.51.
So we'll see if this thing wants to
roll back over here or not.
I will keep you updated.
Okay, it's moving down somewhat here.
Adjusted the order up to 85.60 and that fast out, wow.
And that's exactly why I just decided to hop out,
a little bit too choppy, and I had my, get my stop loss
set up there just in case it had broken above 86,
'cause I wasn't going to fool with it,
but I feel totally fine with that one.
Sure, I could have been, could have been up more,
but just so, so choppy and perhaps I probably should have
realized that a bit better before going in, but yeah,
an error on my part on that regard,
but it is what it is so let's move on
and see if I can find something else.
Also, just finished up a podcast if you're not familiar,
I do have a podcast
that you can find on ClayTrader.com/podcast.
Point being, I probably shouldn't have even been trading,
on SHAK, but one of those situations
where I'll be transparent, I wanted to get green
from that loss, so yeah, like I said, it was a fine trade,
but that's probably why I shouldn't have been into it,
just because things are a little choppy right now.
So I still like to set up, but definitely just wanted
to get green on the day, so I can have a cool video.
But I fully realize the irony that it could now be argued
that it's stupid video, because I just did something
potentially, well not potentially stupid,
I had a stop, or I was, stop loss was in place,
so not like I was gonna blow anything up, but.
So I'd like to find one more trade,
just 'cause I'm up $10 on the day, but I'm definitely not
gonna force anything, but the one thing is,
you'll kinda see what a full day of trading actually
looks like here, granted, not necessarily a full day trading
of me being glued in front of my scree like I said,
I've worked out, I just got done with a a podcast,
which was awesome, but, so when I say full day,
a little deceiving, 'cause it's, I would have liked to
have think I could have been up well more than this
had I been glued to my screen every single minute
of the day, but I just have too many other things
goin' on, but nonetheless, like I said,
yeah the video voices probably got to me on that last one
if I'm bein' fully disclosure, or if I'm being fully
transparent, honest, and that's why, was way more aggressive
than I needed to be in hopping out,
just 'cause while, like I said, my account wasn't at risk,
it wasn't like I was gonna blow anything up,
probably just shouldn't have been in there
in the first place, but, looking at a few other things
so we'll see what happens.
All right, I'm gonna go ahead and wrap things up,
I haven't even been tryin', been off playin' with my kids,
been playing super, I've been Thanos,
but no more, I am not Thanos any longer, back to being Clay.
But I'm must gonna wrap this up, it is what it is.
Market open, market closes, excuse me in about 45 minutes,
but just a bleh type of day.
That first one, it just got me, and, but got me in the
sense it could have been a lot worse,
thinking back to, I realize in this video it was only
like 12 minutes ago, but as far as where I sit right now
that was several hours ago and just knowing that that $130
loss could have been way worse.
But, it is what it is, was able to fight back
and get to green on the day, but that's just how it goes
sometimes, no shame and anybody that tries to lead you
to believe that these sorts of days don't happen,
then I highly encourage, I'd highly recommend you maybe
look at some other sources 'cause that source
is definitely trying to mislead you,
because I don't care what people say or portray,
these sorts of days happen, doesn't make you a bad trader,
it just makes you a human being trader
and it is what it is.
So, if you did enjoy this video though,
then first thing and the best way to really communicate
that to me is just to click that like button
and subscribe to the channel,
lots of there content on the channel.
If you're interested in trading alongside me
and other traders, then I do offer a private community.
So if you're looking for just a realistic,
a fully transparent type of community and type of group
that's just gonna tell ya how it is,
then I'd encourage you to go to ClayTrader.com/team
and then also if you're interested in learning
how to trade with charts and technical analysis,
again, just go to ClayTrader.com and I offer
what's called the Trading Freedom Pathway,
that is my educational program.
So thank you for hanging out with me quote unquote
all day long, and yeah, it is what it is
and just once more to reiterate, if you have some sort
of day like this, it doesn't make you a bad trader at all,
it's just how trading goes sometimes
and the key thing is just to not allow your account
to go too far against ya, and there's always tomorrow
where the strategies work out a little bit better,
that will keep the accounts trending upwards.
So thank you for watching, and yeah, I'll see ya back
for the next live video.
First off, thanks so much for watching the entire video,
real quick, before you go, I wanna invite you to a live
webinar, web class, training, workshop, online event,
whatever you want to call it, but it will be me, live,
revealing to you what I've discovered that has allowed
me to transform myself from being an employee
to being my own boss, including how I had only one
losing day out of 73 days in total.
I'm gonna cover three keys that have helped me unlock
profitable consistency within the markets.
The first key is super weird, but in a productive type
of way, the second key is super awesome because it
quite literally is wired into our DNA as humans,
making it very easy to use, but in a cruel way
this becomes a pitfall for many traders.
I'll explain it all though,
including how to avoid the pitfall
that it creates for some.
And yeah, the third key, when you hear it,
sounds way too good to be true, but it's not,
and I'll show you how it all works.
Then, at the end I open it up for a question and answer
session that is again, totally live.
Even if you can't make the live session, please still
sign up as it will be recorded and you can go back
and watch the replay that I will send you.
Click the image on the screen or click the link down
in the description box so you can get the date and time
and claim your spot, which I should note is limited
due to the fact that this truly is a live event.
If you have any questions, let me know,
if not, I'll be seeing you soon.
