    Default Your Largest Gain on a Trade (Stocks or Option)

    Just like the title says, what has been that one trade which has given you, the highest return on your investment to date. It can be a day trade, swing trade ([Long or Short] even Options [Calls or Put]) etc... I'm talking about that trade which almost gave you a heart attack, when you either closed the position, covered your short, or sold your option.

    For me, it would have to be an earning I played on $SCSS last year. I had never made that type of money so far. I got in at 15min to close, with my full bank roll long in the stock, which I don't ever recommend on anything anymore. Earnings came out, they beat it by miles, and I just saw the price shot up $4.00. I made close to $4000 on a single trade, from 3:45PM - 4:30PM. It went up another two dollars the following 4 days, but I just couldn't hold myself looking at $4000 gain. I'm sure many of you might be brining this type of return on daily basis if not weekly, but for me was crazy. Love to read some stories.

    What has been yours?

    I think we are here to achieve something. It's one life.
    Whatever you do, keep yourself and people around you happy.
    Even if you can't help them, don't harm them. I think that is pretty much life. Keep going, don't stand.
    You got nothing to lose. Keep going, it's life.

    Not too long ago I took this screenshot. It was on April 26th of this year. It was the most I have ever been up on a per contract basis....at the time of the screen shot it was up about $21,000 per contract. I ended up closing the trade with a profit of about $80k for 2 lots, and to date thats the largest profit I have been able to pull off on a single trade I happened to call the high in silver that day. Had I held it all the way down, I could have made $240,000 from the $50 to $26 drop in a few weeks Most of the time our clients have between 50-100 contracts in a market trading. So overall we were up about $2 million collectively. It was a good few days

    ^ M6Cabrio - that is awesome!

    I swear by candlesticks and RSI to guide me and I am right 75% of the time...

    Can you elaborate, I'd like to rely on RSI, Stochastic and Candlesticks.
