No significant news on Anheuser-Busch, but the stock gapped up on strong premarket volume. If I can support the beer industry count me in! Just please never pass me a Bud Light Lime.

Entry Price & Time
I’ve been experiencing a lot of technical difficulties this year, and it really stinks when it happens to a winning trade. I was being rejected for entering with a large share size, but was finally able to get my orders in when I entered a little bit at a time. If I had more, my R Multiple would’ve been higher.

Entry Time: 9:34 AM
Stop Price: $ 111.62
Risk: $ 0.45
Trade Management and Psychology
After weeks of waiting I finally saw my setup show up in $BUD, the trending bull flag breakout. After stalling for about 3 minutes, the price pushed higher and never looked back.
These are the trades we should always be aiming for, trying to be in the money as soon as we enter. It won’t always happen, but every trade should be made with this intention. When it does, it becomes the easiest type of trade to manage.
Exit Price & Time

Results and Evaluation
You never know when your rules will work and when it won’t. This is why it’s important to remain consistent. Unfortunately due to technical difficulties, I was unable to be consistent and entered a smaller position. Otherwise, this trade would’ve yielded about a + 1.50 R gain. Sigh, oh well.
Risk: $ 0.45
Reward: $ +0.54
