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 06/18/14

$ASTI didn't perform like I had wanted but it to but it didn't do anything overly bad either. Guess that's what can happen when you buy into a hold pattern. I still think there is potential for this stock to rise since it is closer to the 52 week low and there seems to be a good amount of volume still. Unfortunately the hold on the positions caused a dip in two of my accounts, SureTrader and Stock Wars. I took large positions with both accounts. Time will tell if the move pays off.

End of Day Update:

SureTrader: $95,843.61 -4.16% for a loss of $5,970.00

Stock Wars: $100,907.75 +0.91% for a loss of $360.00

Penny Stocks 1000: $575.44 -42.46% for a gain of $7.22

Still holding LONG $ASTI in (ST) and (SW)
Still holding LONG $AVEO in (PS1000)
