Performance 4/21/20

In the past few weeks, I have been experimenting with different ways of showing my account performance. The idea is to give an honest view of managing a small trading account. Once a month I deposit $150 into my account, the thought process I have each month is not to lose more than $150 a month, it has forced me to be a lot more judicious with how often and the types of trades I make. I am purposely using a small trading account, if a trader can not responsibly manage a small account, using more capital will not change poor performance results.

Rebalancing Your Portfolio


As market performance alters the values of your asset classes, you may find that your asset allocation no longer provides the balance of growth and return that you want. In that case, you may want to consider rebalancing your portfolio. Learn more.
