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!

EOD update for 07-21-14 12% REALIZED GAINS

$GLUU shot up at the open and closed with a nice gain of 10% @ 7.47 a share. Even if we see a dip this week prior to ER we will likely see continued gains as their two latest games are doing so well. The only regret I have is not having a bigger position on this one :)

With my 8% trailing stop in place I'm still seeing the climb as the stock grows, and I'm now sitting on 12% realized gains even if GLUU tanked tomorrow.

On the 1 month chart GLUU shows a 73%+ gain... imagine if I had gotten on board at the beginning and was sitting on 65% realized gains! Awesome!

Stay tuned. More to come.
