Stockalicious Widget Added

I've added a Stockalicious widget down there along the right side. It details my "swing" account.

Since I'm more or less detailing my financial demise here, I figured I might as well be even more specific.

Actually, I feel the need to head in more of a "swing" direction. So I hope by putting the widget up it will get me thinking more of "swing" trades instead of just thinking about day trades.

Next, a donation widget! LOL!

Just plain discouraged

After finishing April strong and then starting May with 2 green days, I have fallen off a cliff. This is very tough to take.

March was my first negative month ever, April my second and I am in a good hole already in May.

The story of today is that I had no winners. I traded 16 stocks and had only 3 winners on the day, each of them small. I had no disastrous losers (although I barely avoided disaster today in TNH) just too many.

This game is so psychological and right now I am losing it.

I'm not going to over-analyze anything today. I almost think that I'm thinking too much. I'm going to try tomorrow to "just trade" again and let the chips fall where they may.

Here are the stats:

P&L: -$694
Best, HS $137
Worst, WCC -$243

shares traded, 39,400
stocks traded, 16, 3 winners, 13 losers.
total trades, 202

Virtual Office, $1598 Dow 48.35, 13312.97.

Misstrade, $1492 on 18,400 shares traded.
EvolutionTrader, $443 on 45,600 shares traded.
Denarii, $155 on 4600 shares traded.
Scalper, $139 on 23,400 shares traded.
One Bad-Ass Trader, $64 on 10,200 shares traded.
Me, -$695 on 39,400 shares traded.

A quiet, but overall good day for the VO today.

Misstrade continued with his winning ways and EvolutionTrader had a good number for such a quiet trading day. Everyone else (with the exception of me) finished slightly positive.

Never bad to be green.
