Discipline

Two things I want to increase my discipline in:

1. Not buying a stock that is down after earnings on big volume, even if it bounces back. However, sometimes I still might buy this if I feel the selling is overdone. In this case, if the price doesn’t recover substantially by the close, SELL IT! Before the close

2. Not using cash to buy more stocks when the market has had a ton of distribution days and or is in sell mode. Have the discipline to wait until a buy signal before buying.

3. Tighten stops when the sell signal hits. Consider letting a stock go once it violates the 10 day instead of the 50 and possibly intraday instead of the close. Just to preserve capital
