Done for 2009

No trading today for me on Christmas Eve. And in fact I'm finished now for 2009. This year has been tougher to daytrade than 2008. Some months were just scrambling around breaking even. Whether things will improve in 2010, who knows, but I'm sure it will be interesting.

Not sure how many people are still around reading this blog as it seems the popularity of daytrading stocks is waning a bit. Maybe the attraction of Forex is more enticing. But to those few still around, have a great Christmas holiday and all the best for the new year.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year TraderAM!

I don't see FOREX being more enticing - simply because on the currency market you rarely see sharp moves of more than 1-2% on daily basis.
In the stock market we always have stocks in play moving 5%,10% even 20% on decent volume.

Hi TraderAm,

Merry Christmas too! Yes, you're right, day trading this year (for me) is really hard. We'll see if next year will be a good one. I noticed too that interest in day trading is not that much great as compared last year. Hope to see some more trades from you to learn next year.

Hi TraderAm,

You should be very proud of yourself as you have daytraded 2 year in a row and never had a negative month.
I think that your blog is very inspirational as you are the only trader that I know that has a blogs and shares every single trade.
Congratulations on your perseverance as a trader and sharing your great blog.
Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year !!!!
