My thesis is usually right on point with these practice trades but my decision making on either going LONG or SHORT has been off. Once I get it down I know my profit chart will change dramatically. I also need to stop holding and hoping when the trade goes against me, no more revenge trades, forcing trades before work, take my profits along the way letting the chart let me know when i should get out. Weird how im more quickly to cut profits faster then i am with losses. Definitely a stupid mental block i need to work on

These past few months have been up and down with trading. Trying to find my niche with shorting stocks with a real broker that charges commission fees has not been fun. But it has taught me a valuable lesson on how to pick and choose my battles. I haven’t lost a lot of money, but I’ve lost enough (~$400) since I started using TDameritrade. It’s still a great platform to use even though I can’t wait until I can afford STT, but again after losing that much money due to my own personal mistakes. I realized I needed to sit back, study more, pay attention, take notes, and learn. I haven’t traded much since about midway through march this year with TD, I did open an account with Suretrader, but of course, I also have always had ROBINHOOD. Now I know most people don’t like RH because of all the limitations it has, BUT!!!!!! While studying and taking notes, I can honestly say, that Tim Syke's strategy works with Options trading on RH. Not to a 'T' but it has boosted my confidence after I tweaked a few rules (which I don’t recommend, but it has work for me so far). I am up 380% on RH since the beginning of this year, using Tim's strategy with options trading. The only thing that sucks Is I can’t verify my trades on here, for some reason it won’t allow me to but once I get that under control, I would be glad to show how I’ve done it. So, for now I can only post a screenshot from my phone as evidence. I do plan to get back in to trading very soon once I am done with watching all the “shorting stocks” compile videos and I just finished the DVD on short selling also. I know we are in a very very STRONG Bull market; but I’ve seen plenty of short selling opportunities while I’ve sat on the side lines these past few weeks. Just know I’m coming back with a vengeance, with more knowledge and education once I start trading again. But for now, I’m excited to share this small piece of achievement with my trading so far this year.

I started trading with RobinHood starting back in November 2017 with no knowledge or any experience at ALL!!!!, In anticipation of the weed stock boom to come in 2018. Just wanted to basically get rich quick. I realized a lot of them were OTC stocks and pennystocks (most not on RobinHood). Heard about Timothy Sykes and decided to join his pennystocking silver plan. I barely studied, and never followed the rules. I tired just buying the stocks on his watchlists, then just buying some of the stocks that other traders talked about, and also chasing stocks. For some reason I tried options trading, probably because it was something new on Robinhood at the time. And I did great on my first options trade, but after that I got to greedy (plus, i didn't understand what the hell I was doing) and lost huge. Slowly but surely I started studying but not enough. Every stock I used to choose to go up always came down!! so I learned about short selling. RobinHood doesn’t have short selling but they had options trading for puts and calls. I was good at options, but I could never exit in time for profits. I was everywhere with my trading last year. I literally lost $2900. May sound small to some people but that was HUGE!!! for me. SO I stopped trading completely for a while, and just started saving my money. Heard about the Millionaire Master Program and spent all my saved money on it. I watched Spikeability so much but I just could never get in to a trade at the right time. Every time Id get in, it would go down. Now I believe I have found my niche. SHORT SELLING. I’ve been studying my ass off. For the Record I still LOVE ROBINHOOD!!!!!! I’ve learned a lot with them, and I am Humbled to have learned with real money to trade commission free!!.. I was hoping Short selling and level 2 along with UP TO DATE news was in the future ( and it probably is) but its taking to long for me. I signed up for an account with TD Ameritrade. Never traded because I was scared, Still stuck with robinhood, Studied Hard. Worked Hard. Found out I needed a minimum 2000 for a margin account to short sell. I took Money out of my 401K ( I don’t advise this) and Put 2200 into my account. So that is my story. I call myself DTheSavage because no one is as much of a savage as I am to be a successful Pennystock trader out here in OAKLAND, CA. I have nothing to lose, so I have to master this. Small account, lost 2900 last year, took money out my 401k, spent my savings on millionaire masters program.. I've sacrificed a lot so 2019 and beyond will be my years. (PIC: my RobinHood account money chart but its coming back up tho)
