I will not reveal my life story or methodology in the first post â I donât think anyone here has time or desire to read first pages of the journal of the new poster. If the interest of the readers, and hopefully gains in my account, pick up, I will explain my methodology later. Explaining it now, without a public track record or interest from the readers, is a waste of cyberspace on my part. The main purpose of this journal for now is to attract like-minded individuals and to expand my network. I, of course, welcome comments, recommendations and PMs. I am a swing trader by nature, so updates will not be very frequent â may be once every three to five days when I place the trades. I will try to post trades in real time, but because I do have a demanding full time job, sometime there may be delays. I will, however, post screenshots of order execution statements and periodically copies of the brokerage account statements (I am thinking both weekly and monthly). I will also put together some equity line graphs and high level account statistics. The model account that I intend to make public is not my life savings, I can afford to lose it without hurting my family. I donât intend to, but it helps to have the right mentality when making trading decisions. I am funding my account with Interactive Brokers on Monday, July 27, 2009 with $10,000. I think they have a waiting period before I am allowed to trade, so I will post a short update when I am ready to begin. I hope Uncle Sam will be getting a check from me for short term capital gains at the end of 2009. Thanks for reading.
