Happy New Year !

Have a Happy 2007 Everyone! May the new year bring good fortune to you and your families.

2006 was a good year for us but not great. At the beginning of 2006, I lost my full time job so cash flow was pinched a little. We had to reduce our savings at this point but continued to contribute to our retirement accounts. Midway through 2006, I obtained a new position with a better company along with better pay and benefits. Savings resumed and by the end of 2006, we were saving at least $1800/month. I had hoped to purchase another piece of investment real estate during 2006 but the lack of savings/cashflow prevented that.

Moving into 2007, I hope to achieve the goals that I had set out. One of my main goals is to improve my stock trading strategies and techniques so that my results are more consistant. I hope to refine my trading skills by reading more stock trading books, i’m currently reading the book “Come into my Trading Room” by Alexander Elder and it has taught me quite a few things I didn’t think about before. I will comment more on this book later when I finish it and start to implement some of the techniques written.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. This blog has really caught on much faster than I thought it would. It really kicks things in high gear knowing that my goals are written down for everyone to see.

All the best!
