Tackle Today: Halloween Stories: Trading Edition 🦇

« Bring out your dead! »

Oh, Halloween! The end of the harvest season and beginning of the darker half of the year. The world we see and know approaches this liminal stage, thinning the boundaries with the Otherworld.

The time is appropriate to dearly remember the deceased: our departed trades.

The Condors we’ve killed.
The swing trades we’ve killed.
The spooky stop losses.
The rules we didn’t follow resulting in anything but misery.
The price rallying hard against the short strike.
Currency pairs of hell.
The naked puts on penny stocks.
The naked calls on natural gas.
The Bitcoin nightmares.
The Analysis paralysis trap.
The Button-clicking phobia.
The Four Horsemen of the Trading Apocalypse unleashed.

The time of the year when our trading sins wake up from the stupor to haunt us like the living dead haunt poor Ola Ray in Michael Jackson’s Thriller (those were the times, man…).

We want to invite the entire #TeamTackle to send us an email at [email protected] with your scariest, most horrific trading/investing stories. Bring out your dead.

Father Guido, we need you…

Roku is a fun stock to trade if you’re a momentum lover. It boasts volatility in spades and has provided many interesting trading opportunities along the way. My latest attempt ended with a scratch (that’s trader talk for breaking even). But, I think you might benefit from a trade walkthrough.
