Introduction

Hello, and welcome to my blog. I am starting this blog as a way to share my thoughts about the stock market and discuss those thoughts with readers. I will hopefully be able to post several times a week, and I will comment on the general market as well as specific stocks that may be potential longs or shorts, depending on the market direction. I will also be sharing some of the strategies I use for finding both longs and shorts and some of the rules I try and follow in my trading.

I do feel I am getting better and making progress as a trader, and I hope this blog will help to continue my development. I have read many times that it takes four, five, or six years of struggles before truly understanding the market and how to consistently pull money from it. I do agree that trading is an extremely difficult undertaking, and it does take a lot of hard work, time, and mistakes before becoming good. I hope I am on my way - I know that I still make way too many mistakes and have a lot to learn. By sharing my thoughts, I hope I can improve my techniques, my abilities, and most importantly my weaknesses as a trader.

As the new year begins, I look forward to this undertaking and hope that my thoughts will not only help myself, but other traders as well.
