Afraid to Trade Archive Page Now Open

Jan 7, 2009: 3:58 PM CST

A reader brought to my attention a plug-in that allows you to archive every page on your blog into a neat, compressed page that is subdivided by month.

I have created such a page entitled “Afraid to Trade Archived Posts,” – Archives for short – which is now available for you to navigate the over 1,100 posts on the blog.

You can also expand all posts and search titles for topics or keywords that interest you, such as divergences, Elliott Wave, or for particular stocks of your choosing.  I think I’ve discussed Apple (AAPL) more than any stock due to its popularity but there are others I’ve kept my analytical eye on for a while.

A special thank you to all the readers and supporters who have continually motivated me to keep writing and sharing – I’m so honored to be a part of it.  Let’s keep trading and learning!

    That will be helpful, thanks Corey.

    I may have missed it, but do you mind sharing the percent you made (hopefully not lost) for 2008?

    Thanks

    Corey, Thanks for the archive. Now, it makes it really easy to refer to your earlier posts, and our comments.

    Incidentally, it feels good to reread my comment on Jan 4th.. The SP did retest the high yesterday, and then today the pullback did carry it down to levels lower than 902.50.

    However, I did not fully carry out my own comment! I covered my short too early at 914, just to break even.

    Lessons learnt: Never short a rally. Trust the trend and Fibonnaci’s retracements, and let your profits run.

    Toad,

    I generally don’t share that information to anyone but family & my accountant. For one, I have multiple accounts I trade/oversee – a family long-term investment account, a personal retirement account, a personal/family swing-trading (hedged-style) account (which I didn’t do much with in 08), a futures account, and a day-trading account (focused mostly on ETFs and the DIA earlier in the year but switched to @YM futures the 2nd half). I utilize separate strategies, though I’ve recently focused on the futures/intraday strategy due to the volatility.

    Anon,

    I love the new plug-in! It will help me keep a better record of my writings and you’re right allow for ease of comment browsing. What I both love and fear about public writing is that your predictions are out there to the world and burned in record. It’s good to see reader reaction in terms of supporting or disagreeing/adding more info to my posts, which serves to bring them to life.

    Another lesson learnt: Don’t let your losses run. Take them early and join the trend. Otherwise, there are two lost opportunities. Making money going up and then coming down is a lot better than holding on to the losses, watch them increase and them decrease, and finally feeling “lucky” just to break even. Moreover, so much unnecessary tension!

    Anon,

    Precisely! From an edge standpoint, it makes sense to give potential winners room but be stingy with losses – cut off their air supply. You bring up another point – lost opportunity in a stagnant or negative position. You’re not just losing money, you’re losing time and opportunity – both of which are scarce. You are learning some excellent lessons.

    Very nice Corey,

    A ” tip ” might be to ” tag ” the post with the ticker and weight your search engine towards tags first in line . Just a thought. I can remember some fantastic posts which i havent been able to find on the search. Great Addition though.

  11. David Says:

    Corey,

    You would have been proud of me today . Thanks so much so many of your posts on trend days came leaping to mind when the gap didnt look like a fill.

  12. Corey Rosenbloom Says:

    David,

    I’ve been tagging posts but my theme doesn’t allow for tags to be displayed (isn’t widget friendly). My web team is working on an upgrade that will integrate tags – more for trade setups and stocks than anything – and I’ll make better usage of tags then.

  13. Corey Rosenbloom Says:

    I’m glad I could help! I keep harping the same thing over and over on trend days – that they start with an unfilled gap and that moving averages are all that matter – and I’m so glad you turned that information into profits! Very proud!
