Its been a long journey just to get to the base of my staircase to financial freedom. I've paper traded and studied for over a year and I finally feel that I am ready to move forward.
This isn't some part time hobby or something I'm doing just for fun. This is my future, this is fulltime, and I will be living off of my profits and dealing with my losses.
It won't be an easy journey. My first "live" trading day proves that. My first trade in $HIIQ went red on me because I ended up getting in a little too late and had the position fade on me for a loss of $400... roughly -4% on the position. But it wasn't a sloppy loss, I cut my losses fairly quickly and managed my risk well. Red days will happen, that is just part of trading. My second trade is an overnight swing in $MWW that gapped 20% on earnings and buyout news. I entered after it appeared to be holding its gains and I'm looking to catch a second day runner.
Remember folks, financial freedom comes to those who plant the seeds of education and grow their pennies.
