A Note On My Labels

It's hard to know what people do when they come to my site... it's harder yet for me to organize everything so that it's easy for you to find what you want to read.

The "Virtual Office" is easy enough. It comes up everyday normally between 4pm and 4:15 and it takes a second to read. It's a snapshot into how real traders performed trading the market.

My "Daily Trading Statistics" post, where I discuss the trades I actually made, comes up later but normally by 9pm or so.

Finally, everyday there's the music video. However, since not many of you deadbeats have expressed much interest in my musical tastes I've tried to broaden this out to some spoken word as well.

And then there's all the other stuff.

The "my history" posts (which I promise to start again soon) are my attempts to describe what it was like starting out as a trader in the big city. All names have been changed.

The "around the house" label encompasses my attempt to share portions of my life. I trade from home and sometimes it's hard to concentrate. I have a young daughter and a wife who are both in the house all day with me as I curse the markets.

The "surfing" posts describe my experiences surfing, but also include short readings about me buying egg sandwiches and stuff.

The "humor" and "politics" posts are pretty self explanatory. The "stock market humor" posts deal specifically with (gasp!) stock market humor!

One label that is quickly growing is the "CNBC stupidity" label. I mean, if you're forced to watch CNBC all day, you get to hear lots of stupid stuff. Here, I regurgitate that stupid stuff for your reading pleasure.

The "freaky hybrid trade of the day" posts have been dwindling lately. But they detail my specific frustrations with the NYSE Hybrid Market.

So I encourage you to go check out the right toolbar. There are many other labels there as well.

While they may not "make you money" they will keep you entertained as you trade and curse the markets along with me.

Thank you, mdawsz.

I had no shot at blogger stardom when your blog was active. The spotlight just wasn't big enough for the both of us.

Very good blog also very good music and lifestyle. It is the lifestyle I am trying to create for myself.

When it's good, it's good. When it's bad, it's stressful. Thus, Eckhart Tolle.

Perspective is the most important thing to have when trading everyday but it's also the easiest thing to lose.

I don’t care what the others say about your blog, you are the most eloquent blogger out there. Well almost, it’s a tough call between you and The Fly. LOL!
