Trading ac- where do I begin? Started out quite well, especially with shipping ideas in bothtankers and dry bulk sectors. Closed out many of them in Q1 for nice gains. Started buildinga new basket of shipping ideas, only tanker companies this time. Closed many of the positionsearly Sept. TGP was a 2011 carryover idea- very nice gains. Other ideas mostly small gains orbreak-even. OSG, small loss in September.Tried some mining ideas: Thompson Creek (TC) -bad, Molycorp (MCP) - started out okay, then headed South, Primero (PPP) -good, but a hold would have worked better,Taseko (TGB) -good. Some oddball ideas also did nicely: Sequans (SQNS)-tech, Niska Gas (NKA) - NG storage, Can I live down the Christopher & Banks (CBK) screw-up? Taking the loss hurt, but the passed-on opportunity when I suggested to myself to go for it stingshttp://boards.fool.com/july-2012-musing-30126837.aspx?sort=p... $1.20/sh on July 1st, over $5/sh today. Probably one of the best 6-month bounces forany stock on a major US Index this year. Bah!Not sure how the account will behave on 12/31, but per yesterday (12/27), it was up about16.5% with a high-water mark around 25%. Account with Interactive Brokers, their tradingcosts might have a small impact on my trading behavior and gains/losses.
