Hello Traders! This article is to open up an avenue for you all to see what I am planning for my future trading career! I want to be as open with you all as possible and let you know how and why I am making certain moves! This month I decided to open an account with Interactive Brokers. I sought out this broker under the premise that they have a larger variety of stocks available to short. So far, They have not disappointed.
I like to SHORT! Yes, I am the literal Bear when I look at the market. When I first started trading I was finding myself to be quickly trying to find the stocks that are going to break out. After trading for a while I realized how that was really counterintuitive to a certain extent. It is stressful, and we al know the end of the crazy breakout ends with the fear drop. That is what I am focused on when I am scouring the market.
The picture above is my current equity curve in my Interactive Brokers trading account. I started with $2200 which for some reason did not display at the beginning of the curve but it still shows my overall performance against the overall market. My account is up +%28.28 in just a few weeks and even being stopped by the Pattern Day Trading Rule (which is literally the dumbest thing ever).
I am writing this article to start an active journal for this account specifically to take capital Equity from $2200 to $25K. I will update the trades and the equity curve on a weekly and or Bi-Weekly basis.
The stocks I shorted with Interactive Brokers were, BRQS, BB, GME, ACIU, CEI, RCMT, and OCGN! If you have any questions regarding how I trade or any questions about trading I will always make myself available for anyone trying to make their life better!
