Simple & Profitable Trading

Hello All,

Welcome to my trading journal. I started trading in the stock market close to 10 years ago. After a few years I moved everything to Forex. I had my ups and downs trading both. I currently trade Forex, but am also starting back with stocks. I am finally a successful trader and am confident in myself and truly enjoy the process.

I will be posting my trades and my account progress as I go, feel free to chime in at anytime. My strategy is very simple and rather boring, but I do love to talk about trading. I will talk more about my approach in following posts.

Looking forward to this.

Best,

JCP

JCP123 started this thread Trader333, that would be Etrade. I've had the account for years, and it seems to have gone up a bit since I last traded stocks, I seem remember it being around $6.99 at one point.

ffsear, it's actually freestockcharts.com. My entries are not exactly pinpoint and are generally meant to be held anywhere from days to months.

I hope to post some of my thoughts and my approach over the weekend.

Best,

JCP

Commission should be a dollar, not 10 dollars.

That's a spanking on commissions.
