After a volatile week with the $SPY jumping all over the place, the $2.5K portfolio suffered a red week with a total loss of $109.70. This was the first week in the challenge where the share size per trade was adjusted to account for the new equity level of $5000. There was a lot of activity on the Launch list, with 19 total launches but it seems that by the end of the week nothing has been accomplished. This is normal in trading and you should not expect the profits just to roll in without some setbacks. The key as always is to use proper risk management to ensure that the loss is kept at a minimum.
Several of the losers this week made a quick recovery blasting through the profit target and beyond. A couple of stocks also continued to rally significantly higher beyond the planned profit target but with a volatile market it is hard to hold onto stocks for longer periods as profit taking was quick and buyers were hard to come by. Looking at the market volume, it appears that we had extreemly low presence of traders. The next few weeks will see the start of Q1 2018 earning season and the expectation is that volume should increase. High volume with high volatility is a good recipe for trading and we look forward to that.
