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!

Trading the Plan $KEYW

I sure wish $KEYW would have just exploded after the huge contract win with US Cyber Command because the profit would have been epic... and mostly because I was trading the plan.

But that said, I can take pride in the fact that even though this stock failed to run like I had wanted, my plan protected my trade and I was able to exit with a small gain and nail the HOD for the double top right before it faded.

I'm going to keep this on the watch list for a little while just in case it decides to run a couple days after the news.

Happy Trading
