as of late, i have had some big careless losses, but this often happens with consistency. I find myself going up nice and constantly then the shit hit the fan and boom three large losses in a row. patience in finding my pick is my friend. today's interest seem to be, gold lets see if i can get back on the right track. note-- this past 2 week there seem to be less individual investors and more institutional activity, were perhaps they are buying and shorting share to decrease the stock price. more patience maybe require
I'm sure everyone knows but all say it anyways--- if your looking for a broker that is not a bastard use robinhood app it is commission free and free margin (you will have to wait a few months for the free margin account) there is no platform but that's a easy fix just start a account with one of the popular brokers and take all the money you put in to start the account right back out and use there platform done and done free!!!

not much happening for me to day.... as i pass the 3+ year mark, in my endeavors i find less interest in what the market is doing and more in the consistency of my behavior. looking back at my chart i find the same pattern presents it's self every time. my ability to grow on a psychological level has proven to be extremely difficult. Note-- rules, as nice as they are in temporary asset protection and cool strategies to potentially increase rate of success or increase return % on investment. the unfortunate part is you can have awesome rules and strategies and still fall short due to psychological patterns, which is for me found in reading my performance chart. uh how do i grow in this category?

will,,, got a bad entry in the steel market, managed to sell high today and re-enter at a lower price. decided to hold for the night and sell in the morning, the steel market maybe close to a come back but looking at it, it seem to be a week out note: oil distribution companies seem to be preparing for a bounce (don't hold the bounce low overall volume will get you into trouble) still waiting for gold to recover
been trying to be think more positive though out the day. i started reading (choose yourself) a free book from james altucher, still not sure if it for me. he expresses that you need to do the things you want to do and to not do the things you don't, sweet, ok i can do that. so my girl friend comes home and asks if i could pick up some blank CD's when i go to the store, obviously this is something i wouldn't enjoy doing, so here we go, i thought.. then i responded with a (nope can't do that) and a clever explanation of why... we had a brief argument as we each tried to convince the other who was being a baby. after a smoke i came to the conclusion that i was the baby. Note: while i read these book, they are suggestive approaches and need to be slowly integrated in to a life style that works for you (don't take them to a ridiculous extent.)
keep a eye on major British financial institution, seem to be moving a bit
