Trades and Account Growth for January 2017

Blurred Robinhood account history

Total Account Growth for January 2017: 0.56%

This was my first month of really trying to gain an account growth of 3%. I didn’t even come close to that number this month. Perhaps my target is a little unrealistic? My focus could have been better on my trading days and I also should have spent more time researching my trades before going in. I risk 20% of my account on each position, trying to have at most 5 different stocks at any given time. The first 2 trades 1 of the week ended up gaining just over 3% each and I was able to close them out within a few days of purchase. Took positions in SMG and CME for 2.03% and 1.90%.

Robinhood Trading

At the moment I am using Robinhood to make my trades. No trade fees helps with my small account. I am using what they call Robinhood Gold, which is $10 a month and enables instant access to funds when selling a stock, no waiting 3 days to be able to reinvest, and also enables a little bit of margin if needed. The only downside is that it’s only available on mobile devices.
