The trading gods shined on me today


BWA 2 min
Its been a long time since I had a day like this. I started off with a nice winner in BWA. I made around $300 on the trade. With a good buffer like that I wasn't worried to put on other trades. I watched the right stocks at the right time. Later I caught nice trades in NCR and WCC.

HPT,

Yes, I don't live in the U.S. I live in Guam. My trading hours are 11:30pm to 6am.

Babak,

Lol. I got in on the break of the 3rd bar on NCR.

I'm going to change the time zone to Eastern Time. It does look a bit confusing.

About Me

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.
