Past month options trading summary Dec 2009 – Mar 2010 trades -$825
I traded a few options after a year off. Currently my account is actually down -$825 from putting in $1700 since Dec 2009.
I’m not really happy with it, but much of my losses were from not selling quickly enough or not being able to watch/sell quicker. Some trades, just stupid as usual.

I suppose my goal for 2010 should just to be in the positive in 2011 even if that’s .01 above poverty.
Besides stocks I’ve moved to New York City and live in Brooklyn. I live in the Bedstuy section and it always feels sad and racial tension is high. I plan on moving to the Park Slope area. I go to school at the Art Institute of NYC. It’s like community college. I thought it would be more glamorous, definitely not like trading stock options. One day….one day.

Good to hear from you after all this time. So what are you studying?

WOW, Moom. Haven’t you made it yet, living on a yaght in the Bahamas, and doing international economic speeches yet? School is just a short-term solution to the real problem of still not meeting my financial goals. I know. It’s a lame excuse, but it’s all I have at the moment even though I’m going more into debt going back to school at the moment due to the GI Bill (military) being so delayed they can’t pay me for months. I’m studying digital film making. Maybe I’ll do a film on my life. That should be depressing and an eye opener for people just getting into trading. What’s up with you? I thought I’d try to update my blog more often since I am trading real money again.
