I had a profitable two days off from my regular job. I was down approximately $200 in my 3K acct from E-Trade. Now I'm up about $200. Good swing. Now I need to build on it and be more consistent. More importantly, I enjoyed both Thursday and Friday. My commute is like two steps from my bed to my computer instead of a 30 minute drive and walk to my desk. When their weren't any plays on Friday that I was comfortable with, I went to the gym at 11:30am. I'm thinking about when I will take a leave of absence from work. May is a 3 paycheck month for me. It's possible to do trades at work, but tough when I have to take calls too. There are about 20-22 trading days each month. In the meantime I will continue to watch video lessons.
