I have been lurking around the site for a couple of month.....ideas and insight. I am actually glad to be signed up. I was kind of getting tired of hanging around the drama at the yahoo stock forums. I hope to get more ideas from this site any any input I can.
A little bit about myself.....First of all, I can't type and my grammar sucks
I am in my early 30's and started trading with real money in April when I lost my job. Traded with simustock with a bunch of other guys for fun a few years back.
April was a bad time to get in since everything was at their highs and now they are at their lows....go figure. I have learned a lot very fast in those short months to recoupe most of my losses and hope that 2009 would be a better one than 2008.
Anyway, this is what I am doing for now until I go bust and I LOVE IT!!!!
My Current holdings are:
I have been trading in and out of alot of these names including CMI, SWN, APA, and V. I actually just got out of V on 1/7 @57.50 I bought on 12/30 for $50.75
Should keep me and my family up and running for the next 3 months.
Hope to see you guys here and there......good luck to all
