Pear Budget - easy budgeting
I have been using this free personal budgeting spreadsheet to keep track of my expenses for over 6 months. It is better than the ones I tried to create with excel. Check out Pear Budget if you are looking for something like this.
Tip: Save all your receipts after your purchases instead of trying to recall from the top of your head. You can update your spreadsheet every week or every month.
- I have been trading for 5 years. It took close to a year before I became profitable. I find that I am improving gradually each year. My method of choice is scalping. My edge lies in tape reading NYSE stocks and staying on the side of the specialist. That is the method I learned when I started. As I build up my capital I will try new styles and trade new markets. In late 2006 my trading hit a rough patch after the introduction of the NYSE Hybrid system. For most of 2007, I have been on a search for new strategies that would help me adapt to the market.
