No trades for 4-26-11 and no trades for 4-28-11, but I did manage to squezze one in on 4-27-11. The darn thing tricked me though and I wound up jumping out too soon.

FOMC Statement

So, more of the same "moderate pace" in recovery, etc., etc. However it looks like the fed is starting to worry about inflation more, but are still not doing anything about it because they're waiting for incomes to rise. Which I guess makes since because as long as people's wages aren't rising then demand will stop inflation from going too high in the long term. They also decided to stick with the QE2 plan. Though I never really agreed with QE2 (or even QE1) looking at it from their point of view there was no reason to change the plan. The same also goes for the interest rate, but that could change if wages start to rise.

Trades for 4-25-11

Due to it being a fed week I doubt I'll have many trades, though you never know. I really hope they raise rates because we need it.

Trades for 4-12-11

I had another good day even though it was dead for the overall market. No real moves to be had, but I managed to jump in an “ok” trade.

New wine

Found this very helpful to my trading, and life in general so I thought I'd share.



Feeling much better

I felt much better trading today, and actually felt like I knew what I was doing. Looks like I will continue with my night schedule (sleeping during the day and trading at night) at least for this week. If results are still good I may just continue trading at night until I can quit my night audit job.

More losses

I didn’t do very well today, I feel like I have no idea what I’m doing. My best guess to the cause is my night shift throwing me off sleep wise. I’m going to try just staying in “night mode” (sleeping during the day and staying up at night) all week next week to see if that helps.

Trades for 3-31-11

Decided to try my hand at trading from work. Didn't do so hot, but it was a 1st in a very long time. I'm also posting this from my laptop which is why it's not in my normal template.

Total was about -1.40%

3 trades, 2 losses, 1 gain
