AMZN & WFM

The big news today was the acquisition of Whole Foods Market by Amazon. But it you only focused on those two stocks, then you would fail to see the other companies that were hugely impacted by that announcement. For example, KR, WMT and UNFI are all in the grocery business and saw big moves down today.

You can see a short video of these AMZN ripples on my Start Day Trading Facebook page. The link below this paragraph will take you there. Then just scroll down the page of posts until you see that video.

A drop down day in the market

Markets dropped lower today. In the chat room, I posted 7 "high probability" trade set ups. All 7 trades were shorts and all 7 hit their targets. You can see a 1-minute review of those trades in today's link below this text.

But I also wanted to comment on a sad fact: some traders never short the market. They only trade long. Personally, I don't understand this. If the market is going down, then you want to be short. If the market is going down, then your biggest gains and your highest probability trades are going to be in the direction of the market.

So, if you are one of those traders who never shorts the market, I encourage you to get out of your comfort zone and try it out. The water is warm...especially on a day like today!

See today's link to view the short video.

A Good Quote

Today's market was very different from yesterday's market. Many traders find it difficult to adjust their trading styles to different market temperaments. Some of these skill sets only come with experience. But, even so, it's important to keep stops in place. We only have ourselves to blame if we allow a difficult day to become a total disaster. That's the hard reality of trading.

Today's link provides a new quote on this topic. You might find the other quotes helpful also. Just click the link below.

"If your outgo exceeds your income..."

Some of you have heard me use this quote. "If your outgo exceeds your income, then your upkeep is gonna be your downfall." My dad used to quote it and I think he got it from preacher in Atlanta, GA. But I think it originally derives from some WWII poster.Anyhow...the point is that you can't keep spending (or losing) more money than your making, because eventually things will fall apart.Applied to trading, it makes me think of the simple mathematical problem for most traders: while they make some winning trades, their average losing trade outweighs those gains and it makes it very difficult for them to make a profit.Doing some other research, I came across a good article by David Rodriguez that gets into this topic in greater detail. For a good read, click today's link.
