Stream Worthy

I’ve been a proponent and user of StockTwits/Twitter for a few years now and have learned a lot as well as made some great relationships. I’ve been able to meet in-person some of the people I know from the virtual trading world while others I haven’t, yet share a lot with them via email, Skype,

Where I Trade

I’ve had several requests to share what my trading space looks like. I’ve always believed that if there is a dedicated space to trade that your performance will benefit from it. Maybe I’m wrong, but organization at all levels leads to being able to execute a well defined plan when the time arises. I have

Collateral Damage

On Wednesday 7 ft 1 in Shaquille Rashaun O’Neal announced his retirement from the NBA. Plagued by leg injuries this year and not able to really help the Celtics I think it’s the right move. Obviously shareholders of Radio Shack disagree… All joking aside, it’s been my experience that whenever I’ve had to enter a

My Hero

Memorial day is a special day for me as I reflect back on my hero, my dad. My father enlisted in the army shortly after graduating high school in 1959. He was proud of this great nation we live in and served honorably in a time of peace. Whenever I post the stars and stripes

Taking A Break

I’ve been due a vacation for some time now so I’ll be spending the next week and a half island hopping with my wife. It’s good to take breaks from the market, which provides a fresh perspective upon returning. I’ll always have a foot in the market, but as a premium seller it’s easier to

Play Ball!

Yea, it’s the end of the quarter, so what!?! More importantly it’s opening day for MLB! My bold predictions are that the Orioles take the AL East and the Mets will suck, yet again.

SPX Gaps

Quick post to share something from research I’m conducting. I’m delving into the weekly options in $SPX and one of the areas I wanted to look at was gaps. Below is a chart that shows the difference between Friday’s close and the following Monday’s open, in points. Decent volatility from the financial crash to today.

But Does It Come In A Hybrid?

Using new commercially available sensors to measure brain waves — sensors for recording electroencephalograms (EEG) — scientists were able to distinguish the bio electrical wave patterns for control commands such as “left,” “right,” “accelerate” or “brake” in a test subject. They then succeeded in developing an interface to connect the sensors to their otherwise purely

Correlations between shaving and trading

I was recently hired by a proprietary trading firm to conduct some research to see if there are any correlations between shaving and trading. It is my belief, as I mentioned to the firm, that there are direct correlations between the two and thought I’d share the results. Frequency: Daily shavers were more apt to

Once Bitten

Tuesday was a great day in that the dip wasn’t bought in the first hour of trading. In fact, we closed near the lows of the day but I’d hardly call that a victory for the bears. The bears have been front-running a market top for months now and, in my opinion, have become frustrated
