    Hello all,

    My investing history in a nutshell: I started out with a Scottrade account and with the help of a few newsletters, managed to do OK on some trades and actually doubled pretty quickly in ONE trade, but many of the rest have been mediocre and I let my losses run for FAR too long on a few trades which really did a number on my account! When I got real honest with myself and looked at my gain/loss reports and saw that even with my few GREAT trades, they didn't make up for my bad calls, I moved most of my funds to Vanguard. I still keep a small balance in my trading account just because I still have the itch to trade on my own! My current positions are only 2 and are DHI and a very small position in GALT.

    I'd love to be able to be more successful with swing trades. Not interested in using margin or day-trading at all, but if I could make enough off my swing trades to keep from needing to withdraw from my Vanguard account, that would be great.

    Outside of trading, I'm a self-employed signpainter/sign shop owner and I love it, although it has been pretty slow in recent months.
