Hello, Background: 24Male, from Michigan, currently living in Iowa. I have always been interested in the stock market, and finance in general, it was also my major. I have only traded for one year, I am poor. and try to save and add money to my trading account whenever possible. This account is funded with money I have left over after bills, rent etc. Sports fan, love the cowboys, white sox, wolverines and redwings. Trading techniques: I trade only stocks and options. Stocks are typically long-term, a few short. Options are calls and puts. I like to trade the trend; and fundamentals. Goals: Keep 10% in cash at all times Always earn a yearly return greater than CD/Savings account. Control risk by not trading more than 7% on any option trade. Finally, please critique any trade in anyway you like, good or bad. This journal is here from me to learn from my good and shit trades.
