Monday 03/09/09

I caught a cold over the weekend, and needed to get some much needed rest so decided to sleep in this morning. I also needed to take care of some financial stuff to make sure my monthly expenses were as little as possible so I was on the phone with a couple of banks most of the morning. I decided to power up Trade Station and scalp on the Sim while I was on the phone. Net gain was +$412.50 with a lot of early exits. I was on the phone with a couple of recruiters later in the afternoon so was unable to trade the last hour. I'm also looking into prop firms. Would love to join one; we'll see. I'll be trading very light this week since I need to complete an IT project for a client, and a final project for school which is due on the 20th. Once those two items are off my list, I'll be able to better focus on trading.

  1. I've been waiting to see a trade chart of your entries for months now... my god.

    I gotta say, its a lot of trades.... but they look pretty damn good. I mean you don't have any big losers and you seem to have a knack for cutting them out at the right spots for the exits...

    Keep it up man! Thats a hell of a performance for a first day!

  2. Thanks; I just wanted to see if I could scalp for quick hits. Wasn't 100% focused since I was on the phone. I need to work on calming it down and taking less trades, but holding out for slightly larger gains. All of those trades only produced +8.25 pts. Like I said before, if we combined my method/style with yours, we'd be unstoppable :D
