A Non-Successful week in the Stock Market

Above I have both screenshots from the past two weeks. The top is my Trading Account, where this week I lost $107 or %2 of my portfolio value. Now the bottom screenshot is from my Paper Money account, where I had a total of $161.20 Profit for the week. After three Day Trades.

The lesson here is I practiced and got used to the trading system on ThinkOrSwim using PaperMoney, and My fundamentals were there so I profited +$161.

Following that week I lost money and got greedy when stocks would go up, so I waited to sell and they'd all have huge sell-offs. Making me lose the money I had initially invested. 

Conclusion: Trade in what you Understand, Cover Profits Early, and Focus on Consistency.

I'm filming VLOG 030 over the weekend, so I hope you guys are excited for that and I can't wait to keep evolving. Don't let anyone or anything stand between you and your dreams.
