Shorted DIS at the top! I was up $130 at the bottom of DIS, locked in about $90 after lost some on C. Started shorting again as it approached 31.60, thinking a re-test of the top is of a low probability. Surprisingly a buying binge happened when the futures indicated upside, went all the way up to $32.19 where I was exposed 800 shares and down about -$50.

Had I stuck to that position I would have made about $200.

Played with CVX and lost $100. Would have made if I stuck to a short conviction. Didn’t follow my strat on it. I would probably be flat for the day had I stuck to my strat.
