$INDU was always looking to drop today, so as the many other stocks on my Malaysia options trading watchlist. So, I looked for my bearish signalling rules to open the trade. And again it was good’o AMZN. Almost 3 consecutive trades on AMZN on previous sessions. Sideways for almost 15 mins before it finally descended. Took profit and ran, because wanted to exit quickly (and also because of sleepy). No doubt it continued its downtrend and could have profited more, but after many “constipating” lessons learnt during my options trading journey, it was always wise not to be greedy and always to protect your money chest. Opportunities will come, again and again and again. Remember that Greed is one of the two greatest nemesis of a professional trader, Fear being the other one.

Was sarcastically told off by a client of mine during work today. Ya, I made a mistake, human does. Nothing serious, just a typo error. But, did she need to tell me off so sarcastically? That “shame” filled my day till dinner time. Was feeling down and wanted to sleep it off until my kids woke me up to make them a bottle at 10.15. Ok, I was up. And routinely logged into IB. At that moment, I wondered if the bad aura would follow me into my trades.

Demi Lovato sang it, “Let it go, let it go..” OK, I decided to choose what I want to feel – by letting the bad aura go and trade away the blues. So glad that I did that. Twice, in fact, first on NFLX, then on AMZN. The signalling rules helped me cash in $212 by trading options in Malaysia. This is sanctuary, my sanctuary (from work!).

First time buying LNKD since its listing. LNKD was up pre-market when market was in negative territory. Could be because of the recent upward revision of its target price. Anyway, didn’t bother too much about the much. DOW is capable in bringing any stocks down to its knee. So, I looked for my bearish signalling rules to open the trade. Bought into LNKD put option when the mother share spiked up in the early 2 minutes. Almost immediately it turned to my favour, just missed my exit price by whiskers before it moved sideway. Waited and constipated, and bought another 1 put contract when it went lower than my buy-in price. And then it came, a few red candlesticks, loved by all short-sell traders. $152 ang pau packet for this birthday boy! Yup, my birthday today!

I know, I know, BIDU missed its earnings and still I went for a long position. Well, I am trading technical, not fundamental. Am day trading and option trader. I look at chart with some fundamentals. So, when my signalling rules kick in, I go for my play. In today’s, it was a long opportunity and I took it and profited $77 under 2 minutes. And that, folks, is options trading from Malaysia.

A bit panicky when trying to close off the position. True that I did not open at the lowest point for the first 2 contracts. Was on paper loss of $50 when decided to average the position as the signalling rules were somewhat indicating a reversal towards my position. And it did. But, a bit panicky, closing off the position when the option price was up to $1.60. It continued to run up till $2.40 within 3 minutes. That’s $320 in loss opportunity. Sigh… On the bright side, another winning trade!

After a 300+ points increase in yesterday’s trading session, DOW opened today’s session directionless. It was like a yo-yo in the opening 15 minute, back and forth between red and green markers. The signalling rules for TSLA pointed towards downtrend, confirmed by almost all the NASDAQ counters in portfolio, so did not hesitate in opening a short contract, 2 infact. Of course, it did spiked up a little and was in red for a while before I saw the big red candlestick, then followed by another few red ones. Happily closed off the position within 7 minutes. Boo yah…

DOW was down 275pts in the opening few minutes amid weak data and earnings today. All were moving down, but those in watchlist barely fell. When BIDU fell and about to make a reverse following my signalling rules, do-or-die-don’t-ask-why, opened the call position. And the rest followed my script; continue to move down before making a rebound, and ka-ching, money in pocket! Ho ho…
