This is the second month of recapping my trade history for the month.  This is a much improved month as I reached my target of $100 per trading day.  I ended the month with an average of $2889/22 trading days = $131.32.  Similar to last month, it was a roller coaster ride for me, as I on defensive mode coming out of couple of questionable entries at the end of last month.  I was able to get $200 profit out of those 2 stocks (DM and BAC).  June 12, 2017 was an interesting day as I was able to get 4 trades on AMD (1 short and 3 long).  Each trade was less than $100 but nonetheless, it is one of the bright day of the month.  I considered INTC on 6/14/2017 as the worst trade of the month, judging by the fact that I only made $5.  But this was also considered a great exit as INTC continued to slide to $33.74 as of June 30, 2017.  I used the proceeds and turned around to purchase 1000 shares of AMD, which turned out to be a great trade (profit: $620).  Similar to last month, I got into a number of risky trades at the end of the month: SPKE, AMD, and TCEHY.  I need to manage my entries at the end of the month.  Especially the fact that I had a pretty decent month that I shouldn’t be taking these risky entries.  SPKE has already dropped 15% since my entry.  AMD and TCEHY should rebound as other tech stocks recover from the sharp selloff at the end of May.  For July, I will shoot for $150 per trading day.
