I have been on ET for a while and coming up on my 1 year anniversary since entering these great financial markets. I am becoming slightly profitable and wanted to document my success/failure here so I could share my journey and collect useful information from everyone here at ET. I also think keeping a journal will keep me more disciplined and help me to remember my past mistakes. Here is my 1st days trades. 9.1.09 Out SPPI swing trade Entered at 7.8 last week. Exited today at 8.35 + $3.10 Bought 2000 ACAD at 1.9 today. Sold 1/2 at 2.03 for + $108 Tried to trade SSO on the pullback in the AM only to get stopped out. - $103 Was holding FAZ since monday night at 23.11. Exicted b/e this morning. Had I held this trade I would have 900 more dollars in my account right now. Nice... Entered FAZ EOD at 26.28 That is todays activities. Here is my current portfolio of swing trades. All gains/losses are unrealized 300 FAZ entry at 26.28 + $7 5000 SKVI entry at .16 + $115 2000000 SYMW entry at .0013 - $528 20000 BIEL entry at .07 - $80 15000 SPNG entry at .0015 +$1000 5000 CVM entry at .66 - $132 1000 CORS entry at .42 - $148 2000 INO entry at 2.1 + $12 1000 ACAD entry 1.9 + $102 (yeah i trade pennies) Todays P/L + 302 on closed positions. I can tell this is going to be a bitch to keep organized so if anyone has a way to automatically get all of this data from etrade please let me know. lol. This should be a fun journal.
