Welcome to my blog!

I've worn many hats during my entrepreneurial journey, including writing and creating whiteboard videos, marketing, investor relations (Blurbeo), owning and managing my own vapor pen brand (TouchESubject), servicing the real estate market and other clients as the CEO of Puget Sound Field Inspections, founded CLV Investments LLC, and currently holding a position with Byte Me LLC as a Digital Marketing Consultant.

This blog was originally started as a way for me to track my progress in trading stocks, but it's has since morphed into much more. I now use it as a window into what I'm doing to reach my goal of financial freedom. You're going to see what I'm doing to create multiple streams of income, articles and interviews that are business related or featuring other entrepreneurs, and most importantly you're going to get to know me and hopefully I can inspire you to pursue your own dreams

I'm a very driven individual with a passion for customer service and improving our communities.

Please feel free to connect. I'd love to do business with you.

A Decent Momentum Play: $VALE

I had originally gone into the trading day with plans to paper trade $BPSR, $XLIT, and $PVHO with short positions but found that the Thinkorswim platform couldn't fill the orders due to a lack of shares to short. I'm guessing it takes data from the "real" money world to simulate that if you can't short the ticker with real money neither can you with paper.

That had me switch to plan B and look for a long position within my watch list. I found that play with $VALE which had moved nicely in the morning and appeared set up to continue into the afternoon.

I was able to catch a decent chunk out of the momentum and netted a 5.28% gain with $180 profit.

I did have one small mishap during the morning. I was attempting to place a short trade with $PVHO and trying different position sizes thinking that maybe a smaller order would go through, and accidentally placed a buy order. I quickly exited the trade before it turned into a big loss as the ticker was just about to collapse. In the end I walked away with a whopping 0.68% gain and $6.75 in profits lol.
