Friday Trade Review 11/21/2008

This is weird. I had a ton of things to do and looked at the market for about 10 minutes. I saw all the Brazilian stocks going down so I shorted the EWZ. I was in the trade for a couple of minutes and it seemed to have found support. I got out and went on to other things for the rest of the day. I wish it was this easy all the time.

Friday Trade Review 11/14/2008


Today I had very little time to watch the market. In fact, I had ten minutes here and ten minutes there, so I was looking for simple fast moves. Some how, I found to quick ones with out taking a loss. Both times, I was in the market for what it seemed like only a minute and made my goal of $100 both times. I wish trading was this easy everyday. A course in both cases if I sat on my hands and waited 10 minutes my profits could have been $400 a piece.

Confused and Tired 11/02/2008

I should be and want to post more details of my trades. My trading and blogging time has been reduced greatly for the last 6 weeks and I do not see any changes to that. Regardless, this blog has been a trading diary for myself and I need to do better with it to better myself.
