The Past Few Months in Review

The past few months in review

Well, so far out of 16 plays we've only had 4 losses: 75% success rate. That's undeniably an awesome deal. We started in the beginning of May with $5,000 and now, less than 3 months later, we have $7,157.70 in the portfolio. That's a 43% (or $2,157) increase in less than 3 months! And I'm still within the first quarter which only costed $297! Folks, there is simply no denying it... Jason Bond Picks is a win-win and you need to head to this page and subscribe now! If we had this sort of success with a smaller portfolio, imagine translating these results into a big portfolio scenario. Or, if you just want to supplement your income and slowly grow a portfolio, translate these gains into an even smaller portfolio scenario! Even a 43% gain on a portfolio of $800 would be no joke! Incidentally... there is another review site that does these hypothetical comparisons for youhere.

If you haven't joined yet, please do yourself a favor and go to Jason Bond's subscription page (here) and sign up now. I'll see you in the daily chat.

Note: Although I may keep this journal going in the future, the point of this trade journal was to see if Jason Bond Picks really worked, how much success could be had within one quarter, and specifically whether or not the $297 subscription fee was worth it. A gain of $2,157 (43%) over the past three months certainly answers this question for me and I will be renewing my subscription. Do these results answer the question for you? If so, click here.

Coal has been good to me!  Out of JRCC at 2.24 for a solid 10% gain.  A good way to start off the month. This was a picture-perfect, textbook 10% swing trade; straight out of thevideo lessons and quick start guide.

Jumped into JRCC at 2.04. Jason Bond thinks coal has a bright near term future. We'll see.

Took a bit of a blow from GRPN today. Had to cut my losses at 7.19 for a 4.5% loss. Oh well, 4.5% isn't the biggest deal I guess. I'm generally willing to lose 10% on most trades. Gotta keep those stops tight like Jason Bond teaches.

Out of VRNG at 3.77 for a 0.5% gain. Might as well call this one "even" rather than a "gain". Not quite what I expected out of this trade.

Took a 5.5% hit on MEET before punching out.  Oh well, I still stand by what I said in the June 15th post below...

Also jumped back into HEK with an entry at 3.20

In MEET at 2.12.  By the way... if you're still on the fence and have questions, head over here to the FAQ page.  Lots of good info there.

Punched out of ATPAQ at 3.56 for a quick 13% overnight swing.  "Rinse and repeat", baby.  This is getting funner every time!  I'm not kidding, you need to go subscribe now.

Two entries today.  In ES at 1.59 and in ATPAQ at 3.14.  Also, I have upped my max amount per trade to $3,000; will stick with the 2 trade cycle for now...

Bailed out of RENN at 4.43 for a 3.6% loss. 
My thoughts:

 Losses suck…but this is only my second one.  
That’s 2 losses out of 8 sells so far since beginning withJason Bond Picks.  In other words we’re 6-2, i.e. trading with Jason Bond Picks has given me a 75% win rate.  When you think about it, that’s amazing.  I don’t know of any other person or entity on or off Wallstreet that can offer a 75% success rate.  
Furthermore, since I’ve been placing tight stops (mental or automatic) like Jason Bond teaches in chat and in the video lessons, these two losses have been pretty small: 5 and 3.6% respectively.  
In light of the numbers, I’m just being completely objective and honest when I say Jason Bond Picks has got to be the best thing out there.  $297 per quarter? Lol… right now, even with this loss, I’ve got about $1300 more in my paper trade portfolio than I started with and I’m only half way through the quarter. $297 is a steal… let’s just hope Jason Bond doesn’t realize that… 

I can now confidently say, that if you want a system of successful trading that will produce results, you need tosubscribe to Jason Bond Picks right now!

In RENN at 4.59; too lazy last night to think about my $2,500 per 
trade policy so sticking with it for time being.

Revisited ZNGA today after Jason predicted it had hit bottom and 
would bounce… boy did it bounce!

In at 4.82 and out same day at 5.97 for a 24% gain; turned $2,482 
into $3,074!  The portfolio is well 
beyond $6,000 so tonight I’ll try and decide if I want to change my $2500 per 
trade policy.  After this win, my 
biggest, I think I’ll be sticking with Jason Bond to the very

Locked in some tiny profits today.
Out ZNGA 6.13 for a humble 3% gain.  
Also bought DANG at 5.16 and sold it for a same-day swing at 5.27 for a 2% gain.

 Meh, in the green is always good.  
That’s pretty much the whole portfolio moved to “unsettled funds” status.  Gonna have to wait till 
next week now.

May 31

Slow week.  Busy and not able to pay attention to trading as much.  If nothing pops up tomorrow I expect I’ll jump into something next week.  
FYI, in case anyone was wondering: even though the portfolio is considerable bigger, I do not plan on increasing my “max per trade” policy of $2,500 at the moment.  Once I have made a full $1,000 (i.e. once the portfolio hits $6,000) I’ll consider either increasing the max-per-trade for the 2 trade cycle or moving to a 3 trade cycle with a max of $2,000 per trade.  
The latter would give me greater flexibility and be able to jump into more trades and not have to skip as many as I’ve had to in order to avoid trading with unsettled funds.  

We’ll see what happens.

Out CEDC 4.03 for 5.5%ish gain.  Profit is profit, won’t hear me complaining about 5%... in fact thats part of Jason Bond's core strategy, "5-10% rinse and repeat" as he always says".  He explains this in the 3rd paragraph here in his quick start guide.

In CEDC 3.82.  A European stock.  Interested to see where this goes... looking for a cliche European joke I can use here... nope... nothing...

Out JVA for a whopping 15% overnight!  
I exited at 7.67 for my biggest win yet.  I think it’s safe to say Jason Bond is 
officially awesome.  And so is Java.  Might have to go over there for a cup of Joe to show my appreciation…

May 21

In JVA at 6.68; most expensive stock I’ve bought so far (JAVA 
coffee…pretty big company I guess); only able to afford 370 shares with my 
predetermined $2,500 per trade policy.  
Hoping this will be the morale booster I need after last week’s

Punched out of WTSLA at 2.97 for a 5% loss.  
Sad but will try to remain optimistic in light of the previous two
successful trades.  Portfolio is 
still up overall…not the end of the world.

In WTSLA at 3.12.  Let's see if we can continue our winning streak!  Speaking of winning streaks, here's a pretty amazing article on Jason Bond Picks about a crazy streak he had a few months ago.  One of the reasons I jumped off the fence and subscribed... (click here for article).

Out of HEK today at 3.91 for a quick overnight 7% swing.  And what's more: with these two first sells I've made $366, that means I've officially made back the $297 subscription fee plus $69 in just the first week.  Impressed so far. If you are too, head over to his subscription page here.

First sell with Jason Bond Picks.  Exited VRNG at 3.79; turned $2,450 into $2,635.  Not bad for a first trade!  With this one trade I've already made back the majority of the subscription fee for the entire quarter.  If things continue at this rate, the question of paying $297 per quarterly subscription will be a non-issue.  If you were on the fence about joining because of the subscription fee, snap out of it and go subscribe now (click here).

700 shares of VRNG at 3.50.

Okay, folks, welcome to the Trade Journal.  The $297 was a pretty significant investment in itself; I don't want to throw too much more real money at this until I know for sure that it works.  Therefore, as Jason Bond recommends, I'm going to start off here with some paper trading.  Its always a safe way to test the waters.  TDAmeritrade has a good paper trading system as does Investopedia and many others.  

I'm going to start with a fairly modest $5,000 and see what happens.  Due to the size of the portfolio and in order to avoid using unsettled funds during the 3 day turn around after each sell, I'm going to have a 2 trade cycle with a max of $2,500 in each trade.  If/when the portfolio grows I might bump up that max-per-trade.  

I plan on following Jason Bond's alerts pretty closely.  Won't be doing too much stuff on my own, especially entries... exits I will exercise a little more flexibility with.

Now, in order to keep all my bases covered, I need to post a bunch of cliche, generic, disclaimer stuff below.  Please read through it if you get confused about anything. is not an investment adviser   This blog is simply a record of trades made with a "paper trading" portfolio.  Paper trading is also known as simulated trading.  To learn more about paper trading click here.  All aspects of the portfolio and its trades are simulated and hypothetical.  All references in this blog to dollar amounts or percentage gains or losses are referring to "paper trade" or "simulated" values.  (I highly recommend, when you subscribe to Jason Bond Picks, you paper trade with TDAmeritrade, or investopedia for the first week or so in order to get used to Jason Bond's alerts and trading style.  You cannot go wrong with paper trading; buying $1000 worth of XYZ, real or simulated, and selling after a 25% increase, real or simulated, will give you $250... real or simulated).  Jason Bond's buy and sell alerts are part of a paid service and, therefore, to avoid compromising his service all buys reported in this blog will have the stock symbol represented by the word "blank" until after the stock has been sold at which point the blog post will be edited and the word "blank" will be replaced with the appropriate stock symbol.  Due to the size of the portfolio, not all of Jason Bond's alerted trades will be followed.  Obviously any results, good or bad, recorded in this journal are not meant to guarantee that other subscribers to Jason Bond Picks will have similar results (although I certainly hope they will!)
