I have been in TBT the longest of any other trade in my account.
I am in 2 silver mines that are Really skyrocketing right now, back to Even after a long time down.
I'm in a pharmaceutical called MSTX, bought spur-of-the-moment 2 years ago based off if an expert trader I used to follow in a chat room. The Moment I bought that it went down down down for over a year, now it is back to even from when I bought it 10 seconds after he did. So I was stuck, now I am even, in all of these.
And lastly, I'm in a tech stock I chose 2 years ago, it's been All over the place, and I doubled down when it hit a very low level, and now it's above my first purchase, so, I'm up about 100% but I expect it to go up 400%. What pleases me is that it's NEW, you can talk about it with any banker you see cause they know about it, and I usually talk with bankers daily, and finally, it's got a lot of activity...shares thrown back and forth daily...and it's just above $5, which is the mark at which hedge funds usually take interest in a smallcap.
I'm not looking to make millions, I'm looking to break even from the last 3-4 years of heavy losses (which I consider to be a Learning experience, like School, you know, you go to class to learn, and you pay tuition of 20 grand or more, 50, 100 even, so what I lost was maybe a fraction of that, and this "schooling" was way better than ANY fvckin college course had to offer because it's in your FACE and Your hard-earned money that's being thrown about, unlike college which most of the time is your parents' money, and at the whims of Teachers and stupid as5 tests, nothing substantial like REAL-WORLD opposition! nothing to gain traction, your rubber hits the road when you're battling others in the markets, whether real (like antiques, physical assets, real estate) or financial (stock and bonds etc).
