Keys to Wise Money Management

Recommended Posts

I'm still reading articles on Money Management, and as a good start for today, I have found some keys to be wise on money management. These could help us to control our finances and learn how to budget.


1. Set a Proper Goal

Set a practical goal to be sure that money being managed is in clear sight. Always start with small with objectives like paying off a credit card within a specified number of months or saving by the end of the year. Your money management goal should be projected towards a comfortable retirement.

--Setting up a goal is really really important to be able to get ourselves prepared and motivated. This is a very important part for me,too.


2. Take a Stock of Your Money

Keep a track on the stock of your money to know how much means you have actually have. Include all the cash in your pocket or purse, piggy bank cash, bank balances, available credit from credit cards etc. count down your assets also as they a type of your money. Short term assets can be turned into cash whereas Long-term assets would enable you to save money and increase your wealth.

--Yes! I think this could also be a part and a real key to money management! Every single bit could be a help! You should also know every single detail of how much money you have.


3. Track Your Income and Spending

By keeping a track on your income and expenses you will know where your money goes and it will let you to be prepared to set up a realistic budget for future spending. By knowing how much you have to spend and spending within limits or within that is allotted puts your finances under your control.

After you are known about the whole money you have and what income you can expect to get, take some time to find out where your money goes. Make it a practice to note down your spendings for each month and every month.

--You should have to prepare a journal notebook and record where your money goes. Lol. This could also work!


4. Record Keeping

Keep a record of everything which includes the cash you spent, your bill payments, check, debit, and credit card expenditure, how much amount you paid and where, date of purchase.

--like what I have said, you should provide a notebook for yourself to record your expenses and earnings.



**Following those simple steps could help you on Money Management

Keeping honest and detailed records is crucial. As humans we are very good at rationalizing even the most bizarre and idiotic situations. Told in the book Richest Man in Babylon, he who saves 10% of all he earns and learns to invest that money will become rich. It's as simple as that, live within your means, control your expenses and save 10% of all that you earn, aside from life getting in the way.

    • I traded alot today. 9 trades, 8 losers and BEs, 1 runner that paid for them all. Gotta keep swinging! totaled 240 bps before commission. The first winner on W, I did not count - it was a mistake that led to profit. I felt like a machine, kept pulling the trigger, watch the 1min chart, see it doesn't go anywhere, take my small loss... over and over... then one takes off... Let it run... the whole time I was thinking I hope that the one winner will pay for all the losers. I was tempted to close out the winner early. I had no idea that the payoff distribution for this strategy would be so extreme - 8 tiny losses before hitting a big win. Pays to keep the losses tiny and keep swinging.

    • Actions for the 21st. 
    • Today had 3 trades, + 73 bps. The 2nd red dot on ALB was an error, somehow 1 share got executed at the lower price. I started new batch of trades today. The tweak was the exit is now based on trailing exit instead of manually calling it. I found it to be extremely uncomfortable as I sat through each retracement on DPZ. To see profit retrace back to zero or negative is associated with much pain. It feels as if it's a permanent loss. My goal is to execute my trading plan and not trade based on my emotions. I am very proud of the 2nd exit on DPZ for 170bps. I will do my best to continue this work. I do notice I may be giving back a bit too much on my losers, I will not change anything until the next batch of trades.   
    • I forgot to post yesterday. I was down 72 bps.
