Good morning – well yesterday, in complete contrast to today, we had a slow but positive march upwards in the London Stock Market – eventually posting gains of nearly 90 points – and reaching a level we haven’t seen since the start of the year. Today, we have traders sitting on their hands this morning [...]

Good morning to you all. Glad to be back from my extended holiday, and enjoying my time in front of the screens once again. Yesterday was my first full day trading both my ‘Any-Time’  and ‘Trade With a Day Job’ systems, and they both provided me with a decent profit by the end of the [...]

My Trading Day ~ Friday 17th July

July 17th, 2009

Good morning to you all from a wet and thundery East of England !! Well, the markets had a steady climb up yesterday, with the FTSE posting another new high for the week despite a key U.S. manufacturing Index falling to unexpectedly new lows yesterday. One reason for the rise in the U.S. Indexes (which [...]

My Trading Day ~ Thursday 16th July

July 16th, 2009

Good morning – well a positive day on the FTSE yesterday despite bad employment figures earlier – although if you look at the ‘Daily’ chart for the index, you will see (with my indicators) that we are due a correction perhaps today or tomorrow with traders taking profits after a week where the London Stock [...]

My Trading Day -Wed 15th July

July 15th, 2009

Good afternoon – a slightly later time of posting than I would like – but I have been out for most of the morning doing non-trading things in preparation for my holiday next week.

My Trading Day – Tues. 14th July

July 14th, 2009

Good morning to you all. A really lacklustre day on the markets so far today. After the FTSE futures dragged the index down in early morning trading, there was an initial buying spree for an hour or so – and since then it has been wandering around in a small 15 point channel with the [...]

My Trading Day ~ Monday 13th July

July 13th, 2009

Good afternoon – sorry for the delay in posting my ramblings today, but I have been locked out of the blog today for some reason. I would have said earlier that there is no significant economic news data being released today, so you can be in the markets for most of the day. I still [...]

My Trading Day

July 10th, 2009

Good morning on this extremely sunny (in the South east at least) Friday. Well the FTSE had a directionless day yesterday – firstly it was up in the morning and then once the U.S. session got going, a big sell off ensued – and this morning we are close to the 2 month low again. [...]

My Trading Day – 9th July

July 9th, 2009

Well – we’ve had a bit of a bounce in the markets this morning  - especially London – a lot of due to the prospect that the Bank Of England is carrying on with it’s Quantative Easing Policy plus a bit of bargain hunting after yesterday afternoon’s sell off in the U.S. Don’t forget to [...]

My Trading Day 8th July

July 8th, 2009

The day has started very nicely with the S&P Futures shooting up from 881.1 to a heady 886.6 (55points) in a matter of an hour this morning – a reaction of the bargain hunters after yesterdays big falls on the U.S. and European markets due to adverse economic data. I have just caught an early [...]
