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!

Updates: Resources and E-Trade

My last trade doesn't settle until Monday. But that doesn't mean I'm not busy learning and moving forward.

Here are a few updates that I'd like to share...

As you've likely read, I've been using Vin_Trader's WatchList as a starting point for looking into a stock to trade. I'm now adding a couple other traders into the mix to assist me with conducting my due diligence. ClayTrader's YouTube channel and Both have some really good charting that you can use for free.

I also just opened an account with E-Trade and will be trading with a small amount in that account starting 03-04-15. I plan on taking advantage of E-Trade's shorting feature and will be shorting stocks with it.
