Response to Series 65 Comment

Filed under: Finance,Readers' Posts - 23 May 2009

A My Trader’s Journal reader, Zino, had a great comment on my post from earlier this week where I announced my plans to start studying for the Series 65 Exam.  I started to reply below his comment and finally it got so long that I decided to move it to a post of its own.  It was a thought provoking comment since he pointed out that my move to being an advisor is …

Reader’s Post: Day Trading Strategy and Results

Filed under: Finance,Readers' Posts - 17 Apr 2008

Kadena is probably one of the readers who has been around My Trader’s Journal longest.  He’s in the US military stationed in Asia and trades while he could be sleeping.  He comments often and we exchange emails more often.  I received this from him last week and he said I could share his results from day trading.  I thought this was very interesting considering where he was just a few months ago. In September I posted …

Answering Reader’s Questions

Filed under: Beginners,Finance,Readers' Posts - 20 Nov 2007

If the stock you purchase trades against you is there an adjustment strategy …

Filed under: Beginners,Finance,Readers' Posts - 20 Sep 2007

I received the following email this morning from a reader who asked to remain anonymous, but thought his story would be a good lesson for many others who are trying to learn how to become better traders.

First, I had 14K in PUTS I bought and lost 11K the day of the surge. My account balance was $38,000 end-of-May. Today I have just $8,000. I managed to lose 30K in just 3 months! Good for me! No, seriously, this …

A Reader’s Trades on American International Group, Inc (AIG)

Filed under: Finance,Readers' Posts,Stock Picks - 21 Aug 2007

The following is from one of my regular readers, Kadena.  Kadena is in the US military overseas and trades after he’s off duty, during his nights.  If you want to share your trade stories with everyone, you can email me with what you traded and why.  My email address is thetrader[AT]mytradersjournal[DOT]com.

Today I opened 5 different kinds of bull plays on AIG.
The first is simply bought stock in my E*Trade account for the long term, so no expiration here to worry about.  …
