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!

Week 5 Still Alive!

So as I mentioned a few posts ago I am now going to begin posting my positions before the market opens. I think the full transparency will help me along in the learning process.

For week five I plan on entering a couple of positions with bigger plays and hold for 2 to 3 days... unless the positions hit the 10% mark and I will then take profits and scale back the positions.

I'm still going LONG on my positions and I'm looking a FOUS patterns within the 3 day charts and 1 to 3 month charts. Also looking at news and volume.
