It is Thursday! It is options expiry Thursday. I will be taking Thursday and Friday off. Instead of trading , I am working on some programming in Tradestation. Playing around with EasyLanguage and code some simple alerts and indicators. Trading in the evening time is tiring, so I guess some alerts help to keep me awake when opportunity appears.
Some observations after reading blogs: I found some common traits among traders (those appear in blogsphere) who do well (at least from the trades they have posted) like Trader-x, Estocastica, Maoxian, Tom.C etc though they might have learnt some skills/ideas from other traders or mentors, the key point is, they have developed a set of strategies by their own. There might be similarities, but there is always something unique from each of them.
I am kinda lazy to continue writing on this topic. The key point is, you wanna use an indicator? please open up the source code, read it, and understand what the heck is inside. You wanna learn a trading strategy, read it, understand it, and make it your own. Yup, your own.
Just some random thoughts.
