Welp. Its my birthday again… On Sunday.. So i’m gettin outa dodge and heading to Cabo for the week and will be back next saturday. But….. Mexico + my Birthday seems to have a curse on me!
So if you remember two years ago my alert on PCBC while i was in cancun.
“Long PCBC 1/2 @ 1.08 as this looks to be breaking its consolidation and on the move here nice chart…. delayed alert.. still in mexico on very slow wireless connection. Flying back to san diego tonight!”
Things were great.. I was up over $10,000 on this trade pushing towards my best trade of that year! Until WAMMMMY! News hit and this stocks drops pre-market swinging my account -$20,000 that day and i ended up selling PCBC for a $10,000 loss!
Now when you get hit with a loss like this it definitely messes with your head.. my head was out of the game and i missed two huge trades right after this loss because i was in a slump. But … trades like this happen and there’s nothing you can do about it. If you know how to diversify like i teach you in the FOUS4 DVD.. Hits like this are easily recoverable. Because you protected yourself before it even happened. But mentally wise you just need to shake it off..

So anyways… I leave for mexico tomorrow morning. Yet this morning! my stock picks LSG which was looking great yesterday was halted and they issues dilution news out which gapped it down hard … Fortunately it wasn’t a huge hit like PCBC. I was long 20,000 shares from 1.11 and sold this morning @ .95 taking a $3,200 loss… Definitely not was i was shooting for… Was looking for a big win to pay for my trip to mexico haha… sigh…. But.. I’m not worried about it. I’ve made nearly $320,000 since 2011 all alerted in real time to my subscribers and i’ve never not come back with a vengeance and ripped HUGE profits.
But maybe next year. I will avoid the whole mexico Birthday trip and go somewhere else! Seems to not be a good combo for my trades ha! Huge gap downs will kill yah! Ok gang. Cya when im 28!
