Daily Summary

11000 shares
+230

I did not catch any big movers today. My biggest gain was around 90 bucks. I caught a few scalps on the long side.

I found a pretty good website(finviz) for trading research thanks to Brian from Alpha Trends. For a free site it has pretty powerful screening tools. I played around with it today for a little bit and I like it.

I like how it shows the chart of all the stocks from the scan. It also draws trendlines and finds patterns for you. Nice.

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.
