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 06/19/14

Had a bit of a mess up with my paper trading account @ SureTrader. For some reason it reset it's self and I lost what I've done the last couple of days. I don't have the exact numbers but lets just say it was a major fail! I think it was somewhere near a $9,000.00 loss today because several long positions flipped and headed in the other direction. I got to the computer later in the trading day and the damage was done. Oh well... guess the reset was a sign haha.
