2009 Goals Iâm excited as 2009 will be my first full year trading independently full-time. I plan to write an investing journal on here to track my performance, progress, mistakes, lessons learned, and hopefully some winners. I will start with $650,000. My goal is to get the account to $1 million by the end of the year. 2009 sure is going to be an interesting year, probably still dominated by macro factors. I think itâs going to be harder to find variant perceptions between reality and true fundamentals as the severe recession will make the fundamentals difficult for the vast majority of companies. Thankfully Iâve found there are always opportunities in every market. My goal is to build a community of a handful of smart investors that will help one another become better and thrive. Happy New Year to you all.
