Opening a new position of GMCR

Tomorrow I am going to buy back a few shares of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. (GMCR). I can buy only a few shares since my buying power went significantly down thanks to my last error in money management, but now I have my trades for free, so I can afford it since no commissions will be charged.
Even with small numbers now I still want to play this game by numbers. Tomorrow I will buy 3 shares of this stock.

Today I bought 3 GMCR @ 70.00 and set my stop loss @ 60.28, which equals 3% risk of the portfolio per this trade, and 13.89% total risk per this trade.

Visa – opening new position

Well, I am buying back Visa (V) tomorrow. I shall buy 7 shares @ $64.41 and if so, the stop loss will be @ $59.31. I will update this post after the trade opens tomorrow morning.

I have bought Visa:
07/17/2009   09:30:14  Bought 7 V @ 64.25

And set the stop loss at $59.15

A new position opened – MDRX

The market seems to be bound for reversal. I purchased a new position of Allscripts-Misys Healthcre Solutions Inc (MDRX):

07/15/2009   14:57:57    Bought 19 MDRX @ 15.6794

The stop loss was set at $13.07 which is 3% from the entire portfolio. The total exposure should be $49.71 (16.62%) if the trade turns against me. I adjusted my ATR value a bit which reduces the loss by allowing buying less shares.
