Speaking at NY Traders’ Expo on Tuesday

February 20th, 2011

Just a reminder that I’ll be giving a presentation along with Trade-Ideas’ David Aferiat at the New York Traders’ Expo this coming Tuesday, February 22. The title of the talk is Automated Trading with the Odds in Your Favor. We’ll discuss coming up with trading strategies, refining your ideas into a trading plan, and creating a feedback loop for ongoing continuous learning about the markets.

Feel free to drop me a line if you’re going to be there and we can meet up.

The New StockTickr Yearly View

February 7th, 2011

We’ve just added a new calendar view into StockTickr.  You can view multiple years worth of trading on a single page. Notice the colors – the darker green the day is the more profitable that day was relative to other days and the same is true for losing days.

Clicking on the day of the month takes you right to the trading journal for that day. There is a link on the month name that takes you to a monthly calendar view showing details of each day.

Didn’t Log All Your Futures Trades? Use StockTickr To Upload Trade History

October 11th, 2010

Didn’t log all your futures trades into a journal but still want to analyze your trading and improve your edge? No problem! We’ve just added support for uploading trade history from Transact Futures monthly statements using the StockTickr Bulk Import feature.

This is a nice addition for futures traders with firms that clear through Transact (Infinity Futures for one). Instead of starting from scratch or manually entering trade by trade you can now import your entire trade history into StockTickr right off the bat which makes the performance analysis that StockTickr provides that much more valuable.

Here’s an example of what you can analyze, learn more here.

  • Which times of the day are you most profitable and which are costing you money?
  • What’s the typical amount of ticks or dollars a position goes against you but still ends up profitable?
  • Does your trading exhibit streaks, is it better to press it when things go your way or maybe not?
  • Is System A that you’re trading better than the new System B you’re trying out?
  • Want to keep track of performance during Fed day? Just tag those trades as FedDay and analyse them separately.

We support over 40 futures contracts. Sign up for a free trial and start making the most of your edge.
