9:00am  Hi everybody, I am in the process of transferring funds over to another trading platform. Using my current methodology, I am doing quite a bit of active trading. To lower my commission cost, I am going to a platform where the broker only charges a flat $3.95 per trade. I will keep my current broker for certain transactions such as the free commission trades on a multiple of ETF's and Funds. So for awhile, my portfolio will see a $8.95 cost per transaction and eventually  a $3.95 cost per transaction when I switch over. I also want to 'test' out the new broker platform to see how well it works so again some trans will show $8.95 and others will show eventually  $3.95. However, the new broker allows new clients like myself 100 free commission I will take advantage of this. So shortly, on my portfolio it will be zero cost on some of the trades and 8.95 on others and eventually, hopefully 3.95 per trans ongoing. 
 9:08am  Sold 40 shrs of TSLA for a net profit of $465.00.
9:15   Off to a near-by estate sale... I love to Rob the Estate Sales Blind.
9:50 am  Well, I got it. Estate sale item. Today was 50% off day and the dining table and chairs were still there. I saw a lesser quality dining table w/8 chairs for $1200. This one here was listed at $950 w/6 chairs. I got it all at 50% off for $475.00. Paying a guy $75.00 to haul it to my booth. I always try to double my money or 100% gain on my purchases. I'll list it at the booth for $1395.00 and come down  to around $1100-1200.
Also bought  a book for $1.00, 'The battle for investment survival' by G M Loeb, 1952. It has some chapters in it  that interest me, 'You can't forecast, but you can make money' and 'Gaining profit by taking losses' and 'the ever-liquid account'.
9:55am  Last trading day of August.  Did you survive the summer ? we all move into the most interesting time for market investing - Sept - Dec.
10:54 am Sold 25 shr NFLX for $280.60  net profit
: Annualized rate of return calculation. 
It is shown on the first and  last page of the portfolio spreadsheet. It is based on an average portfolio cost basis  of $80,000. More times than not I am below that amount.  My rules as stated at the beginning of our blog site is that I will not have more than $100,000 at risk at any given time and no more than 12 equities in the portfolio.
 My annualized return is based on a 365 year, the formula is provided by Google Drive spreadsheet software.
The rate will be calculated each day after market closing. I might add a second rate of return based on an average equity cost of $85,000 or $90,000 if I start putting more money in at risk. Right now , $80,000 is an average on the high side.

My real account live portfolio (started Mid May 2013) This same portfolio is shown in a larger frame at the end of this posting

Price... follow the Price.. Money does and money flows to where money grows. I don't care about moving averages of any kind or flavor. I have no clue what oversold or overbought means nor do I care. Even volume numbers can be deceptive. I look at Price. Price is the result of the entire spectrum thoughts of those who are buying and selling stocks. Price is true. Price is honest. Price at any given time  provides the result of anyone's and everyone's  analysis, comments, posts, blogs, manipulations, media news, etc etc etc.

I don't have the time or inclination to purchase an entity and see if it's a winner in 5 years. My preference is to find out in 5 minutes. I love to purchase a stock that hits a first time new high, whether  the new high is a 52wk high, a yearly high, an all-time high ..because... the odds are that it's more than likely to continue to hit even more highs. The 'first new high' is likely to be the lowest high.
Are you watching the right stocks ?
