I have been trading for over three yearâs part time. For more than one year I have reached overall profitability. Before that.... well, lets not talk about that. Like many here I have learned trading the hard way, mostly about the use of stops. That was then, this is now. This is my journal, with all the normal dreams of challenging myself, taking it to the next level, emotionally conquering my fears (known and unknown), ordering a consistent rule set, etc. My comfort zone is swing trading stocks with a "somewhat SAR" system using a trigger not exactly based on just the normal price action. My exact system I will not disclose at this time since it took quite a lot of effort and some $moo$ to have it programmed just like I wanted. I usually trade three or four stocks at a time. My longest trade this year was nine days. The shortest was just over an hour, and that was probably too long. I hope to post every trading day in close to real time the activity of my account and solve my dream of being successful in the market.
