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!

Pumpers, pumpers, pumpers

Here's a great example of why everyone should be careful when looking into pennies. One of the several promotion email lists I'm on (PennyStockProphet) just sent out an email about $DPSM urging people to "research" the stock for today's session. While one may see a gain if they ride the pump early and get out, the risk is high. I've never traded anything on the lists I get, but may short them at some point in the future.

Oh yeah... check out part of their disclaimer!

$16,500.00 to pump a stock? I'm in the wrong business haha.
