Diary of a Trader 6.20 : New Technology Old Problems

Believe it or not, but the market offered us a good amount of opportunities today. Unfortunately I had to throw all of my day trading opportunities out the window due to technology issues. Yup, the good old reliable internet was acting up today & when that occurs I have no interest in having any short-term exposure to the markets. Ofcourse the trade that I ended up cancelling minutes after getting involved int ended up being a winner, but REMEMBER the name of the game is conservation of capital & with the speed of day trading I’d much rather be safe than sorry.

Speaking of technology, I’ve been tasked with testing out our latest bit of software called the “Cryptographer” and I’m finally getting the hang of it. As a whole I’m not a big software guy as I’m rather old school, but our programer does a GREAT job of understanding how we trade and deveoping pieces that make our job easier, without necessarily doing the job for us.

I’ll be making a few changes in my approach to the markets come July. So as we inch closer to the end of this quarter I’ve been implimenting some of those changes into my routine just so I can get used to them. I’m excited that the markets are actually showing some promise, hopefully that also means that it’ll present me with some good trading opportunities in the near future.

If you didn’t hear it already in today’s episode of The Trading Coach Podcast I discuss with you a major change that a former struggling trader made in order to become successful. Check it out below.
