Popping in to say hello

It has been about half a year since my last post, and many months since my last look around backstage here at bluecollartrader.  Time flies, eh?
I found a few comments and published them a short time ago, as well as answering the two people who left the notes to me.  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope my answers were somewhat helpful.
I am still studying and practicing in the markets every day.  For four months, I was working a full time job at night so I could spend days at the computer, but that seasonal position has ended.  It was very tiring but I am still committed to make trading our sole means of support.  For now, I am back to 100% focus on the markets.
My chart reading skills are sharp now, but I still struggle with the mental aspects of trading.   As my edge is refined, the improved feel for momentum together with confidence / certainty help significantly with the mental struggles.  Really... there is nothing that builds confidence like an edge that actually works.

I will do my best to post more, but I cannot promise anything right now.  Best of luck to all.

  1. Welcome back! I have cut way back on my day trading and just swing trading now. Had my best months ever since going solo in Nov,Dec. I dont know if you have given swing trading any thought but as long as you dont over extend yourself (i.e. holding too many open positions overnite), give your trades some wiggle room and scale out it is as profitable as trying to turn tricks everyday :)


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I'll review your remarks and post on the site assuming they are respectful.
