Well, well, well. I did it. Yes I finally did it. My minuscule trading account is now $64 dollars and change richer than when I made the initial deposit back in November of 2008.
After all the ups and downs. After the countless mornings getting up early to watch the premarket and selling, selling, selling to save my ass. After all the days and nights berating myself for missing out on making real money instead of chump change or losing money. After watching screens, diagrams, charts, and graphs for days, weeks and months on end. And after reading thousands upon thousands of words on the markets, stocks, companies, fiscal policy, trends, and why oil will be $100 a barrel again within 12 months.
After all that I have a profit of $64.36. This is the perfect definition of Feckless.
Even so, I will be celebrating tonight with an adult beverage and an average cigar, that I managed to make up a 48% deficit from February.
I now await the next downturn (oh, it's coming baby) and then it will be back to the market; albeit a little wiser than before.
Wish me luck.
