This is a jorunal to keep my records about what I am doing everday - the stocks I trade, entries/exists, the strategies I use, and most importantly, the lessons I learnt. I hope this journal will keep me disciplined and motivated to accomplish my goal - making $5K each month to pay bills with my $20K capital. Currently my own account has $25800, this week I need to withdraw $5K to pay bills for the month, after the withdraw, my account will have $20K. I only daytrade stocks, no futures/options/FX. Due to pattern daytrading rules, I won't be allowed to daytrade stocks with less than $25K balance, I will transfer my account to ProdigyTrading next week, they allow me to daytrade stocks with less than $25K, the margin is on them. I also manage two other accounts for friends. One has $50K and another has $20K, I will split 50-50 profits with them. I won't withdraw any money from their accounts. I trade various stocks, from penny stocks to NAS stocks, the price is from 0.0001 to $10. My plan is to make $5K each month, my daily goal is to make $300-500 a day. My max risk is $200 loss per trade, my capital draw is $2K-4K per trade, for higher priced NAS stocks, I might put more than $5K in a trade, I will use hard STOP orders on everytrade possible. In most cases, I will try not to hold stocks overnight, I will close all positions before 4:00 PM or in AH, I might hold a stock overnight if it shows strong signs of continuation. I have my own charting software and indicators. I use mutiple timeframes in my software, I use daily, hourly, 15 minutes, 5 minutes, 3 minutes, 1 minute and tick charts. In most cases, I trade with the trend on hourly, 15 minutes, and 5 minutes charts. If I do a counter-trend trade (such as on 1 or 3 minute bottom/top), the entry/exit will be very fast. I've a stock scanner to look for trading opportunities every minute. I look for stocks trade at daily high/52 weeks high for long positions or trade at daily low/52 weeks low for short positions. During the day, if I hold a stock for more than 30 minutes or I think it has strong momo, I'll post it on this journal. Wish me luck and thanks for reading!
