Hello and welcome to my journey. I wanted to do something in IM but it seems everything has become too competitive (or maybe I lack skills and knowledge). Anyhow I had saved enough money (close to $5000) from freelancing gigs and recently started trading in India's stock market. I started with $3453 and kept rest safe in bank. I will be updating my journey thread everytime I make some profit. I have already made some decent returns in month of September 2019 which I am posting below : September 5 2019 - 2,41,728.71 ($3453) September 10 2019 - deposit 5,000 ($71) September 14 2019 - 2,49,434.76 ($3563) September 16 2019 - deposit 8,000 ($114) September 22 2019 - 2,59,475.01 ($3706) Main figure is in Rs. (Indian currency) and USD in brackets. Deposit is when I add money from my freelancing gigs to my trading account. As you can see I started with $3452 and have made $65 profit within two weeks. It's not much but slowly it will increase. I am sticking to fundamental giants in my country which do lot of business and won't collapse overnight. I usually book profit everytime my stock goes up by 1%. So I buy at let's say $100 and then sell at $101. I have a list of 20+ companies and invest partial amount in each company, book 1% profit and re-invest in some other company. September 23 2019 was the best day in this month because I made close to R.s 7000 ($100) in a day. I have attached some screenshots. Don't get confused by numbers in red and all. I book those in profits and then average those in losses, and then book them later in profit. So when I sell something my main holding amount goes down. As on September 23 2019 I have Rs. 2,66,335 ($3804). I am trying to generate atleast 3%-4% return every month which is approx. $100+ per month. I know it does not sound much compared to rest of journey threads here, but in long run when compounding kicks in money starts multiplying very fast in the stock market. Ofcourse their can be losses but I am hoping to avoid problems. I haven't booked single loss so far in month of September. Let's see what I make this week and in next month.
