Double A Penny - Step 20 - The Eagle Has Landed

How To Double Your Way To A Million In 28 Steps
DTAMP - Double To A Million Plan Blog

I made the first trade of 2010 and it was mildly successful.

It could have been a lot better but I just could not wait and did not follow my plan to hold longer term.

I had been watching this Stock for awhile: Eagle Bulk Shipping Inc.(NasdaqGS: EGLE)

The stock has been swinging up and down and looked promising for a DTAMP trade. I had been waiting for it to drop to around $4.50 although I wasn't sure it would get down there.

On January 4th, 2010 the stock popped up a little and I decided to jump in. I got it at $5.25, which was higher than I really wanted it, but I had a feeling it was going to keep going at that point.

I was planning on holding it until it got up into the $6.50 - $6.75 range. But I just couldn't do it. I sold it off at $5.54 instead.

The next day it kept going up hitting a high of $5.89. :-(

A profit of $196.01 is not bad for DTAMP.

DTAMP Equities Plan Report:

01/04/10 - Buy - 738 shares of EGLE @ $5.25 p/s - Total $3874.50
01/07/10 - Sold - 738 shares of EGLE @ $5.54 p/s - Total $4088.52
Total ($214.02) - ($18.01) Fees = ($196.01)
Net Gain of (+5.04732)% in the Amount of ($196.01)

I finally made it over the $4000.00 mark for the first time.

Step 21 is so close I can almost taste it.

Present Stake: $4088.47

Hi Matt,

I wish you success on your doubling journey.

I added your blog to my comrades in doubling. A link back would be appreciated.

I wanted you to know that I have read your whole journey --- and I find you to be quite an inspiration and one of the only people who have continued on the doubling journey for any length of time with so much integrity --- commend yourself for that! I appreciate what you are doing.

I am a Canadian - and I started playing the game at the beginning of December last year -- I find it very fun - and I am looking forward to getting into the larger dollars. In my home town, I play the game with two other women - and my main person who told me about the game is from New Zealand - and she and I correspond regularly and share our stories.

I have started a blog to record some of the steps along the journey because I really liked yours - I liked the pictures of your found penny and objects. Mine is very simple - more just like a journal but I hoped to inspire others just like you did for me.

I truely hope that your year goes much better -

I read a very good quote yesterday that you may find helpful -

"When you focus on what's wrong - you get more of what's wrong. Conversely, when you focus on what's right - you get more of what's right."

from the book - Think or Sink by Gina Mollicone-Long

My best to you.

Thanks Falin.

Perseverance does seem to be a crucial part of being a Doubler.

Great way to start 2010 Xin. I have a good feeling this year for you. Be careful of choppy waters when playing the stock market though. Luke Sidewalker can only bailout so many people!

Good luck,
Your Comrade,

Thanks Luke. I hope your feelings are accurate and 2010 is a glorious year.

Bailout. hehehe :-)

I do have to watch out with the trading. It can be dangerous for DTAMP. I will watch my step as best I can.

Congrats X! You are plodding along but, as others have said, your perserverance is definitely taking you onward and upward...)

Thanks Blondie. :-)

I am looking at it like, if I keep on going I will eventually make it or die trying, which ever comes first.

If I stop I will guarantee myself never making it.

There are times when I think about quiting, but those thoughts pass and I plod along a little bit more.

The smaller goals kind of keep me focused. For instance, all I need to do is get to $5,000 . I think, I already made around $4,000 of it, whats a thousand more. So I keep trying.

Thanks for the encouragement Blondie and everyone else!!!
