Last week was awesome, let’s build on that success this week. SQNS didn’t go as well as I liked up $2,500 early to take a $200 profit and of course it’s gaping up this morning at $2.88 and if that sticks I’ll have left about $1,500 on the table. Part of trading but definitely something to learn from.

I’m looking to add position and will let you know when I’ve done so.
