Stock Market

I haven't made a stock market entry for a while. Partly because I've been letting my trading portfolio go away by attrition and I was down to one stock, partly because the stock market was really crappy, partly because there were more pressing matters (as most of you know).

My plan was to just sell and not replace until I was down to 0 stocks and then start replenishing it. But my last remaining stock, ADM, refused to be stopped out, and never met my sell criteria (Zacks rank <1). Monday I got impatient and bought some new stocks.

Impatience is a horrible reason to  buy stocks, but it looks like it has paid off. I am proud to say, for the first time in a very long time, I beat the market today. My trading portfolio was up .83%, better than any of the three major indices.
