    Jun 1, 2011 5:22 PM | about stocks: UPRO, SPY, BBRY

    Today was my most profitable day yet, but I feel like I could have made more money if I traded a little better. However, I managed my risk pretty conservatively today, so I am proud that I did not get too carried away with my positions.

    most of my content

    Thanks for being a part of Swing-High.com. Always trade with a stop loss and manage your risk appropriately.

    Happy Trading,


    Stocks: UPRO, SPY, BBRY

    You made $1000 out of how large a portfolio? What was your turnover? Those are metrics that matter when measuring performance.

    Author’s reply » Thanks Chris, I appreciate the feedback.


    Account changed from $61255 to $62244 (so I guess I was $10 shy of $1000 after commissions). That was a gain of 1.62%.


    If you want to see my turnover (I assume you mean trade frequency and quantity), I can attach the excel doc in an email if you send me a message with your email address. or follow me on twitter and I will tweet it right now
