AMKR long update

I had planned to post a bunch of trade updates this morning but ended up at Home Depot buying, then replacing a broken light fixture in my office.  I avoided electrocution & I'm finally on-line so here's the first of the trade updates.  I'm going to focus on the few remaining active long trades first which brings me to AMKR. AMKR was originally posted when breaking out on Jan 8th but I suspected that breakout would fail, which it did, and that it would provide a more objective entry on a pullback to within the wedge.  As the previous chart (2nd [...]

AMKR short update

AMKR is an existing short that has already hit the first target (T1) but still has plenty of downside before T2. of course, as the chart below shows, the most objective 2nd entry or add-on to this trade would have been when prices pushed back to re-test the T1 area (remember, once support is broken, it becomes resistance and vice versa).  charts in reverse order with the most recent first, which illustrates how an active trader can utilize the multiple targets to trade around.  a longer-term swing trader who took this trade targeting T2 might have lowered their stops down to [...]
