I did not make much but it is good to end the day green. There were some nice moves today on the long side when the market bottomed at 10am. At that time my trading platform went down and I was stuck in a stock for over 10 minutes. I ended up making 12 bucks on the trade. My esignal charts were slow and it took over 20 seconds to load a chart. Hope things turn out better tomorrow.
- 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.
