Do you have a stock market routine?

Are you losing money in the stock market?

I’ve been there. I’m far from being a stock market wizard myself.

Why did you start trading stocks? Like most people, I got started for the wrong reasons. Trading is easy, or so I thought. I wanted action. I wanted excitement. I wanted to be a Swing Trader. After spending $2,000 in an online course, I found out that I was terrified of Swing Trading. Why? Because it didn’t match my personality and lifestyle. Trading short term gave me goose bumps. I spent all day scared glued to my phone screen. I’m a full-time software developer and my work requires absolute concentration. My trading strategy was affecting my work and my livelihood.

But I didn’t give up.

What did I do? I knew I needed a strategy that I could execute when the markets were closed. I think better when I have time to analyze all my options. I’m a programmer after all. I found CAN SLIM, a growth strategy that combines fundamental and technical analysis. The goal is to target higher profits in higher time frames. I now hold positions for weeks or months instead of days. I have a plan with predefined entries and exits. But more importantly I have a system that I can trade during my workday.

I've developed a stock market routine that fits my personality and lifestyle.

I’m on a mission to help others getting started in the stock market without blowing up their accounts. I want people to know that capital preservation and discipline are the secret ingredients to being successful in the stock market.

The whole secret to winning big in the stock market is not to be right all the time, but to lose the least amount possible when you’re wrong.

About Me

I live the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. I'm passionate about writing mobile apps for iOS devices. I helped to develop two of the most downloaded mobile apps in the island. They’re both financial apps and have more than 100,000 active users.

When I'm not coding or working on my stock market routine, I volunteer as a community builder in the Puerto Rico tech scene and mentor junior software developers.
