I started this board mainly as an journal of my own trades while sharing stock calls with other traders.
BIO- I started trading back in 04' and had NO clue what I was doing! Made some $ by pure luck, then lost it all. Came back in 06' and knew a little more, but still lost it all. Came back in 08' and lost it all again!! I FINALLY accepted that I needed to LEARN without exposing my capital. It took me a full year of learning everything I could about trading stocks without making even one trade with real $! Instead of trading, I went to Zamiba, Africa for 4 years. When I came back I was ready to trade. Took 2 months watching everything without trading anything. Then, in 13' I started trading with only 1K and taking 10% on each trade no matter what. My focus was totally on not losing $!! Once I had made a few dozen trades without losing $, I started to focus on making 20% profit trades. Still make bad calls on occasion, but I never put more than 25% of my capital on a given stock. My focus is on limited time exposure while trading multiple plays on an 1-7 day time frame. There are over 5,000 stocks that trade under $5... TRADE THEM ALL. My % gain on trades has slowly risen to 40 %, but my bank account has gone up a lot because I have more capital to trade with...(that IS the key once you've learned to trade). I ALWAYS sell or get stopped out if the stock goes under my entry.... I've lost reversal gains on some trades by doing that, but without capital you can't trade tomorrow! Well rounded traders use both technical and fundamental analysis....using just one analysis generally ends in losses in the long run! Example: Buying a stock based on "good" chart technicals without knowing an RS is coming, or a major lawsuit was just filed, or an offering that just undercut the PPS by 50%.... Etc Example: Buying a stock because of great news without realizing the chart shows the stock is way overbought and leads to a Bull trap pullback...Etc
THE BEST TRADERS ARE ABLE TO BE A BULL AND A BEAR ON THE SAME STOCK WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT....IT TAKES TIME TO LEARN
BTW.....DO YOUR OWN DD!
If if you see me on an specific stock board making a lot of posts...It's because I'm usually Bullish, and use my Ihub subscription to its fullest. :) https://www.usdebtclock.org/current-rates.html
