Been a while

I knew it had been a while since my last posting.  Let me bring you up to speed.  What I have going on investment wise  I cannot share.  It isn't because I am trying to make something more of what it is.  The reason I will not share the details of certain processes are somewhat basic.  The work is a system in process, therefore the data and the individual securities are incomplete.  Regardless of an incomplete process I would not want to have anyone shadow what I do without applying a good risk management system tailor fit to their own trading.  That being said, if someone has a risk scheme dialed in, then they should be able to find their own securities that fit what is to be accomplished with their portfolio.

Also, with my new job and training, my trading job has been put on the back burner, which is fine as I am fully Cash.  Work is demanding my intellect, so I am trying to see what is left at the end of the day instead of working investment in the morning.

I will of course post what I can, and I am comfortable with how I have share redacted journal entries.

So until next time.

YouTube update exclusive to Blog readers:


The *** order expired at close.  Simply put, the order never hit the trigger.  No problem, I will live to trade another day.

RobbieGTV and I completed the audio portion for part one of the Investment Professional series.  It went really well.  Two hours of tape that will be split into two parts.  I was surprised because at first the subject seemed as if we wouldn't be able to squeak out much more than 30 minutes.  However, when we really delved into the subject, the content just flowed.  I am very excited about the what will be nearly 8 hours of content this series will eventually comprise.  I am so far extremely proud  of the topics covered in the first entry.

The plan is to post videos in one hour increments on Sunday mornings when typically YouTube content is a bit down.  Promotion for the vid will be present throughout my intraweek vlog entries.  Regardless of if it goes "viral" or not, I am excited.

Journal Entry 20130910


Update and housekeeping.

It has been verified that if I would have stayed with the trade rules in this instance I would still be making money.  It is imperative that the rules be followed.  It is too important psychologically to neglect.  In the mean time, while I am currently in trade with *** and ***, now is as good a time as any for some account housekeeping.

This current trade model (******) began on 20130819 with an equity balance of ***.  As of this writing equity balance is *** with *** at risk.  Account balance is now ***.

Current model profit since 20130819 (22days) 129bps gain.

Still riding the *** and *** positions on a profitable trend.  Respective gains from buy triggers have been 30% for both which have been perhaps too edifying.  Nothing crazy, but I am very eager to liquidate the profit.  I don't think it necessarily has anything to do with finally building a good system (of which a mentor provided me half of), but simply novice trader immaturity.

I don't think there will be any cure for my condition besides experience, and more work.  I am afraid of neither.
