Welcome To MyMoneyBlogPlayMoney

After starting MyMoneyBlog, I began to itch to learn more about trading individual stocks and bonds and the market overall. I knew that my knowledge and time available was limited, but I wanted at least to get some exposure to the fears and decision-making that goes on when investing with one's own hard-earned money. So I put $5,000 into a FreeTrade brokerage account, and called it "play money", which let to chosoing a non-existent ticker symbol for fun - MMBPM - MyMoneyBlogPlayMoney.

In an effort not to clutter up MyMoneyBlog with my trades, I will be posting them here instead for all to see. I will summarize my gains and losses on MyMoneyBlog, but all the nitty gritty will stay here. Welcome!
