I plan on starting my Journey with $2,000. I arrived at this number because it is what I feel comfortable losing right now. I also feel it is achievable for most young professionals and a round number that is easy to track. Although I plan to put more money in the market, I will limit this blog to the trades I make on the $2,000 and my thoughts at the time. My goal is to stay above 7% annually. This means I will make no other deposits to this specific account.
On the ‘See My Trades’ tab I will be keeping a detailed log of the $2,000 in trading funds that I have set aside for this blog. It is my hope that this will allow transparency for anyone who is interested in my actual results. I will show buy dates, sell dates, the amount traded, and the running account total for the entire $2,000 through the life of this blog.
