This is my personal blogging website. My professional site is Doug Green Consulting. Topics here will range from Drupal to Day Trading to Travel to Product Reviews and Movie Reviews to Recovery. In other words, this is my personal website and will cover anything I'm interested in.
You can follow me on twitter or facebook, contact me through Drupal or skype douggreen or aim douggreen1. I can sometimes be found in #drupal irc (also #nowpublic's private irc) or in Hotcomm's TTRoom.
Ugh ... I just realized I'm too late with this, because our local paper publishes on Wednesday and Friday, and the election is this Tuesday ... but here's ab op-ed piece I was about to send to my local paper.
Disclaimer: I used to be a Republican. Today I'm a Yellow Dog Democrat, a rare breed in North Florida. I'll vote for *almost* any Democrat over any Republican.
Another late start at 8:15am.
I was up late working for the day job and am getting a late start this morning.
It's Tuesday of my second week of trade blogging.
It's week two of trade blogging, Monday morning. I'm expecting a slow morning: (a) Monday's are normally slow, (b) last week was slow, (c) and there's no news coming out this morning to drive the market.
It's Friday on my first week of trade blogging. It's been a very light volume week with little to no pro activity. We're at year-end highs and I'm speculating that people are nervous and unwilling to take risk. I expect more of the same today, and even less of it because it's Friday. For the mid-term I think we'll continue to meander higher. I've read somewhere 1160 as a target for the ES, with a potential strong reversal there.
One trade pre-market for a 5 tick loss. One trade after market open for a 2 tick loss. Down 9 ticks for the week.
I'll add charts later today or this weekend.
Day 3 of daily trade blogging, no trades in the morning although I attempted one late afternoon for break-even. Very slow morning, zero pre-market volume and almost nothing in early morning either.
Today is my second daily trading blog. See yesterday for the introductions. One trade today for -3 ticks, and one undocumented trade in the afternoon for +1 tick, so -2 for the day.
I'm starting the new year with the idea to blog each trading day. First, a little about myself. I'm a software developer and have been day trading for about a year. I've co-developed a trading package called ZoneTrader, which runs on NinjaTrader, and is available from TraderUSA.net. I'm not a trading expert. I've learned from some pretty good traders. And I hope I'm becoming a good trader myself.
Each day I hope to comment on what I see as bias and direction. I'll document the trades I actually take. And I'll post some charts.I have three reasons to write this blog:
No trades today, slowly crept higher all day, breaking macd divergence with each high and each low pivot. No good ABC trades. I need to figure out how to trade macd divergence and the trending A trade.
