Update - Sunday 08/30/2009

Just thought I'd post an update in case any of you were wondering what I've been up to. Summer school went well, pulled off three A's and a B+ and GPA's currently at 3.7 (not too bad with full-time work I guess). I'll be taking a full class load (4 classes) in the upcoming quarter as well, which starts in a couple of weeks. The IT consulting is going OK too. I signed up with ThinkOrSwim and can access their web-based trading/charting platform at work, so I try to check in on the market when I can. Some people take breaks to smoke; I take breaks for charting :D

I'm still looking to join a prop firm, so please email me if you have any contacts. I graduate in March next year, and coincidentally that's when my consulting engagement officially ends, so it would be the ideal time to join a proprietary trading firm. I could do pretty well with member rates and firm capital :-)

As far as this Blog goes, I'm very glad that Chuck and Ziad are posting here and I hope they'll continue posting because both are fantastic traders! I'm posting more on Twitter these days since what I have to say doesn't really require a full blog post. So if you'd like to stay up to date or check the marked-up charts I post, follow me on Twitter:

That's about it from my side. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Here's my marked up 5-min ES chart from Friday:


  1. Chart looks good!!! Glad to see you're still keeping at it.

  2. Thanks...looking forward to you kicking ass in the NQ!
