My Trading Day ~ Thursday 25th August 2011

August 25th, 2011

7:45am.    In contrast to yesterday, I was up a few hours ago, as I have a lovely day mapped out ahead of me. I try to buy at least a couple of books from Amazon each week (usually trading related, history or autobiographies) and as I have been away from home for a short [...]

9:00am.    Not a particular early start for me today, I ‘ve only just got up and come down to the kitchen to have a spot of breakfast (poached eggs/smoked salmon)  I have a meeting with my accountant in 30 minutes (he’s doing a home visit) and then I am off to a friend’s farm [...]

August 23rd, 2011

08:30am.    I was up and down in my study  by 6:30 this morning, and got a couple of my screens ready with some favourite charts.   Not long after I had sat down, I noticed the start of a signal on my S&P500 chart and at 7:14am I was in a ‘long’ trade with [...]

7:25pm.        I arrived home earlier this afternoon from my summer break in France, and within an hour I was in my study browsing my inbox – I was not allowed to take any laptops or phones on holiday with me, so I will be playing catch-up for the next few days with [...]

My Trading Day ~ Thursday 11th August

August 11th, 2011

11:05am.     I have spent the morning so far doing some emails to potential customers and also talking to a few on Skype, it would seem that people who are interested in buying one of my systems would rather speak to a ‘real’ person before purchase.  I have been informed that this kind of [...]

my trading Day ~ Wednesday 10th August 2011

August 10th, 2011

5:15pm.       Not much trading going on today, the markets are still very volatile after the woeful economic news that’s around at the moment. I did start watching some charts  shortly after breakfast this morning (around 9am) but their movement was erratic and hard to pin point, so I only sat here for a short [...]

Friday 5th August 2011

August 5th, 2011

10:30am.    As most of you will be aware – today is the first Friday of the month so it means Non-Farm-Payrolls announcement at lunchtime. I do not usually trade on a Friday anyway, but this is added incentive to stay out of the markets. I am catching up on emails this morning, and after [...]
