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.
