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!

Stop Triggered on LSG: New Game for GLUU is a Hit

Unfortunately $LSG continued to slow and I saw today's dip trigger my 8% trailing stop. It gave me a small 2.62% gain... but with the smaller position size the fee hit me and caused a loss of $7.94. I was hoping for at least a 10% gain before the trigger was pulled but oh well. The stop did it's job and protected me from a larger loss. I may look for a re-entry later but I'm waiting for the GLUU position to finish first. I think my next trade with utilize a full half of my capital to maximize my position size.
