It's funny. Every morning, I set up a dozen or so one-and-done's, knowing that most of them will filter out. I usually only have one or two that actually trade. So, this morning, I saw one small trade in AAPL, lots of others filter out, and I thought that was the end of it. But it wasn't.
I checked an hour or so later, and I found a $322 surprise from NIO. It didn't open until 9:34:56, and it didn't close until 9:39:03.
Looking at the chart, I'm not sure I would have taken the trade manually. I'm also not sure that I would have traded 31 calls. Nor that I would have been able to hold it as long as the robot did.
But that's the beauty of setting up a trade plan and following it with perfect discipline and zero emotions.
And you can't have emotions about a trade when you don't even know you're in it. ;-)
