My strategy is pretty simple. My goal is/was to feed the family. With no debts i worked that out to about $150/day (5 day week).
So i thought, throw 10 or 20k at something, pull it out as quick as possible for a quick small profit, get up and go do some housework (or whateva)
It's worked a treat so far. Lost some dollars along the way, but done pretty well since going head first in April 08.
But just lately it's gone pear shaped. Not as in lost money. You see, i bought a couple of what i thought were well oversold stocks, in particular AIO and MRE and in Jan it was ESG, BRM etc. Sold out as quick as i could and was very happy at the outcome. But less than a week after selling all, all doubled in price and i wasnt there.
So OK, i turn 20 into 26, but it could have been 20 into 40.......see my problem?
Someone told me once before i started trading to set goals and to stick to them. Should i be changing goals or just be happy i ain't sitting here in socks only??
