So lets assume you are not full of it for a second. Your first purchase was 4.18 and out and 4.25 and the second was in at 4.35 and out at 4.54.
So if you would have bought at 4.18 and not flipped them the first time and rode to 4.54 your profit would have been 10 cent more per share or 38% higher if u sold at 4.54 like you did the second time. Or looking at it right now you could have exited at 4.57 and had 50% more profit.
Sounds to me like you are an idiot that has gotten lucky but will lose out on longer term larger gains because you think you can beat the market. I have news for you.....you are a schmuck that over time will not beat the market as if you could really time it all the time you would not be hear bragging about your little piss ant gains.
boosto: Yes, we can all be geniuses after the fact. The truth is I have been posting my buy and sells fairly regularly. And whether you choose to believe it or not, I have been in and out of C eight times now, each time making a handsome profit in a relatively short period of time. Would I have been better off holding at $4.18? With the benefit of hindsight, yes. Any knucklehead, yourself included, will be right 100% of the time when using historical info. The great ones, though, judge themselves by the decision they make at the time given all the available data. The fact is I owned plenty of shares bought in the 3's, so I would have been even better off holding from that point. I'm impatient, what else can I say? When I see a substantial profit, I get out. I don't even bother with stop losses any more. So, I'm not as rich as I could have been if I held, but I'm better off than if I had been sitting on the sidelines. By the way, do you know with 100% confidence that C won't tank tomorrow? HOP
you will never be able to time it over and over again. This will soon either get you stuck in it or leave you in the dust. I trade too but I always keep core shares available and if I get stuck no biggie,as I am in it for long term.
