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!

A Little Inspiration

Two plays today. Small position in $PPCH in an attempt to scalp yesterday's momentum but it didn't hold. Cut losses at a $4 gain... which after E-Trade's commissions translates to about a $16 loss.

Also in a swing with $INVT with 500 shares. Waiting for the EOD push and tomorrow's action. Shooting for at least 10% gains. Trailing stop set at %8

Last but not least I stopped by a dealership for a little inspiration... Not that I want a Lamborghini or Ferarri, I'll take my trans am thank you very much. But "what they are symbels of" is what inspires me... Financial freedom
