Wall Street Warriors
I just finishing watching Wall Street Warriors season 2 episode 1 and I enjoyed the show. The stock broker and his group reminds me of the movie Boiler Room. The girl getting interviewed in the futures prop. firm brings back some memories. It reminds me of the time when I got interviewed at my prop. firm. Now I am going to watch season 1. I got the link for the show from Syke's blog.
- 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.
