Just Like Mike, I've Failed Again and Again, and that is Why I Succeed!

by Bradley Voight on 05/17/19

Investing in public capital markets is like being inside one of those globes where the money is flying all around you and all you have to do is catch it.....easier said than done.  Six years into managing all of my family's money with no financial advisor and at times feeling like a sky diver with no parachute, the failures have been few in terms of losses. Errors of omission have been the largest errors, having all the right information and being shaken out of good stocks such as AAXN and TWTR, bought both at 15 bucks and sold for small gain. Today AAXN is 63 and TWTR is 39. Coulda shoulda woulda held them but got bounced out. As of May 17th of 2019, I have more than doubled my IRA in 3 years from $24,500 to over $54,100. In 2017 I returned 45% for the year and in 2018 I was up only 3%. So far this year I am up 31%. Even with those great numbers I still made some critical errors or I would be over $65,000 right now. Live, invest, and learn!

Small Time Recycling's Mission Statement

Our primary mission is to reclaim valuable recyclables from the waste stream and bring attention to the wastefulness of America. Currently we are recycling metals and e-waste. The Smalltime Blog is a non political commentary on metal, stock, currency and other markets. The Smalltime Blog is also where the hard lessons of a self taught investor are discussed.
