Welcome to my blog. A lot has changed since I started this thing. I'm now trading live after about a year of paper trading and studying. Originally I had planned on starting part time and slowly growing my account but life has a funny way of changing your plans. I found myself at a crossroads of sorts and quickly realized that I was being given a once in a lifetime opportunity to pursue my goals. I took the leap and I'm not looking back. Follow me here and see the triumphs and the losses.

I tend to look for momentum trades that I can hold for anywhere from a few hours to a few days. I usually take positions of $5k to $10k in size to allow larger gains on smaller percentages (it's easier to hit a 1% to 5% gain vs a 10% to 20%+ gainer) and I like to use a trailing stop.

This blog is a way for me to log my progress and to aid me in learning, I hope that you find it useful. Financial freedom isn't given, it is earned. So plant the seeds of education and grow your pennies!

End of Day Update 06-26-14

Well I didn't have the stomach to hold longer on $NIHD. Perhaps if I had a smaller position on the ticker I would still be holding it, but the 20,000 shares cause a nasty dip in my account and I lost my nerve... likely a mistake to bail now that I think back on it as the FOUS pattern is still there. But live and learn. If the stock climbs drastically I can kick my own ass for it.

My little test with $ECRY was a success as well as a couple of others I found through Market Wired. ECRY made a easy 10% gain and was a nice little profit. All of my other positions also went green and ranged from 2% gains to 12% gains today... likely the only reason that my loss in my SW account isn't more!
