Trades Updated 01/27/2013

I've finally updated my trade accounting system to be able to import futures trades. It's been a long time, but I've finally been able to update all of the trades that I've done. It was a sad reminder of how disappointed I was at myself about using too much margin. I've been forced to close positions to prevent getting margin called, meaning that I will have to pay taxes in vain. You will notice that my Berkshire Hathaway position has been closed out at a big profit. This was against my desires. Never again will I expose myself to such an enormous amount of leverage. It was wrong regardless of whether or not I actually made money. It is a sad fact that I would only have realized it was a mistake if I lost money.
