  1. Hi everyone,

    I would like to start my day trading journal.

    I currently trade only US equities.

    Shorted the banks on the open and made a nice profit in wfc and jpm

    Nothing major happened made a couple of insignificant trades.

    Close was very a active made a very nice trade on shorting HCN on the earnings.

  2. Great job. Hope you keep it up.

    Do you only trade NYSE, or other exchanges too sometimes?
  3. I trade NYSE, Amex and Nasdaq.

    I am also going to try to make an attempt later on this year to trade a little bit of options.

    Very good open. Shorted MSFT, RIMM and PALM. Small shares on all those shorts.

    Couple of ok trades. One good trade was XOM short at around 1:10pm, but had very few shares.

    Took heavy BAC short at 3:30pm thinking the stock is going to break new lows and lost all of the profits for the day and them some on the pull back.

    Overall apart from few mistakes that cost me my net, I am not too upset. I always try to find something positive in the negative days and learn from them.
  6. Monday and Tueday:

    Was sick and did not trade.

    Hard day for the traders.

    Overall finished ok but had to stay in some stocks overnight.

    Sounds like a recipe for disaster.
    Why would you have to stay in a stock overnight?
    With my trading program a simple click gets me out of a stock.
