I just found out that Google has a service called Google Notebook. I have been looking for a good note taking software to keep track of trading ideas. This seems to have what I need. With this I can clip good trading articles from blogs or websites and add my own thoughts to them. I can organize them and retrieve them later by doing a keyword search. Another good thing about this is I can access and work with my notebook on any other computer unlike other note taking software which requires installation.
- 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.
