I watched all of the live webinars and video lessons that were emailed to me, including the ones sent by my mentor the past two weeks.
I took a penny stock trading break the last two weeks, since the OTC market hasn't been so hot. I haven't been sending watchlists to my mentor. I have still been watching the market, but I have been playing around with the higher priced stocks and trading options. I am back in a losing streak again, so I am planning on going back to trading the small caps this week.
I am still listening to the audiobook "Hedgefund Market Wizards" by Jack Schwager. I am almost done with this book.
I am still reading "The Psychology of Trading" by Brett Steenbarger. I haven't been reading a lot, so I still have a ways to go before I finish this one. I only read a couple of chapters. I am also still reading "The Great Crash" by Selwyn Parker on my Kindle.
I finished Tim Grittani's "Trading Tickers 2." I really enjoyed it, and I plan on re-watching it in the near future. There are some good strategies in there that I want to play around with.
I ended up paying for a month's subscription to Stefanie Kammerman's "The Stock Whisperer" app. I have been doing trading experiments which have been mostly successful strategy-wise, but I have been making dumb newbie errors too, so have been losing still. I refuse to give up, I am just learning these lessons early on, and I am grateful for that.
I won a free month of membership to the "Investor's Underground" service last week. Every Sunday, Nate Michaud does a "Sunday Scan", and he runs a contest where you enter by leaving a key takeaway in the comments. I have been exploring his service all week, and I really like how high tech the chatrooms are. There are 4 different chatrooms, MOMO, Swing, OTC, and Trader's Lounge where he livestreams all his scanners and he holds a p/m meeting each trading day. There's a lot of educational material that I have been going through too.
I haven't been as focused the last two weeks. My husband has been having more health issues, and I have had to deal with hospitals and caring for him as well as making sure my daughter gets her schoolwork done. It has been a rough couple of weeks. I hope to get back on the trading horse very soon though.
