It’s very rare that I post 1-minute charts here. The 5-minute chart is my bread and butter, it’s what I use 99% of the time. When we’re watching a dozen or so stocks, the 5-minute chart means we can flip through the list at a relatively leisurely pace. It’s why I can get away with using a single screen with only two charts on.

Here are a couple of nice simple trades. A stress-free way to end the week.
First up was QCOM. This is a stock that has been on and dropped off my core list multiple times over the years. As soon as any news comes along on this one, it’s automatically on my watch list for the day.

I know I bang on about not having favourite stocks, that it’s important to treat the market equally because a good trade can come from anywhere, but man Tesla has been bringing home the bacon in the Walsh household over the last year or so. Wednesday provided a true banger.

Tuesday offered a nice little trade on APA, a low-priced stock that’s easily accessible to even small accounts.

It’s always nice after taking some time off to be able to ease back into things with an easy trade. This one on Monday looked easy, but went pear-shaped. Fortunately there was a second chance, and it was far more benevolent.
