A Brief recap of my trading in 2013

I have been working on finishing up my accounting for my taxes and the program I use to track my trades for tax purposes, Tradelog, also can put together some interesting and useful reports. Below are a couple of mine. Note: as with all trade data I provide here I believe these are correct but cannot guarantee that.

A few highlights: I traded 334 different stocks last year. Trades on just three stocks, FNMA, FMCC, and AAMRQ combined for $53,000 (about 1/6) of my profits. Every other stock on which I made more than $10,000 was a pump and dump of one sort or another: XUII, SWVI, PVEN (Awesomepennystocks pumps); TEWI (uncompensated Focus Media pump); OCTX and NAMG (mailer pumps); NNRX and GNIN (Brighton Markets pumps). Note that the largest loss by far was ($17,650) on TGRO — I ended up making over $16,000 net on that once 2014 trades are included (I am a mark-to-market trader so open positions at the end of each tax year are marked at the closing price of the stock).

Weighted by shares (not by trade), 72% of my trades were winners. My total commission cost was $57,188.07. Not shown in any of these reports are my expenses: about $33,000, most of which was for short stock borrow fees.
