Stocktradingtogo.com is a blog dedicated to the independent investor—daily market analysis, stock picks, and investment insight (basically like mine without the attitude/chip on their shoulder). Writers include a hedge fund manager, Covestor.com‘s #1 most followed trader (I’m currently #4, but I’m comin’ for you epicady!!!), and badass owner Blain Reinkensmeyer. The site also offers nearly 100 stock education articles, so def. consider subscribing to their feed!

Here are some of their golden nuggets:

Boiler rooms are getting popular again, awww yeahh!

The new MyTrade.com just launched and it’s awesome. (You may remember me and founder Andy Swan, doing a little video for MSN, seeing how many shots it would take to make certain stocks look attractive, aka Don’t Drink And Trade). Basically it’s a website for finance people that has different pods so you can organize all the crazy amounts of data and information all on one website. And, since they just got bought out (of course Howard ‘The Godfather‘ Lindzon was invested) by Thinkorswim‘s parent company, Thinkorswim users are already registered and they’ve got a cool window where you can make your trades right on their site. I sound like a freaken advertisement, but I’m just really impressed with their product. It’s just the beginning, but here’s a video explaining everything:

Good article about craving the high that trading makes you feel.

My book just got one of its best reviews ever from a successful author:“Timothy Sykes does an excellent job, beyond amazing for a first time writer. He paints a vivid and fascinating portrait of himself and his financial rise at an early age and along the way makes a subject most others seem to only obfuscate more with words, crystal clear.

I think Timothy Sykes is so brilliant he should have two careers. Hedge fund manager (although I’m not sure about this but I think he was saying that the rules dictate he had to leave the field in order to divulge as juicily as he did in this book) and another as a writer. Perhaps Hollywood calls. They pay their writers there enough to interest someone of his abundant talents. However. Read this book. The experience is enjoyable and the entire rest of your life will be enlightened by the information.”

-Jane King

Dealbreaker now compares big time hedge fund manager John Devaney to me, riiiight

    This site is soooo over whelming, Tim I think you need to reevaluate how much your really worth… I’d say at least $700,000,000

  • Spit

    Nothing at ToS! :(

  • YoungGunz

    PAL and CQP are the only ones available

  • YoungGunz

    PALM i mean. 2/5 available unless I took the last 300 shares of both :) doubt it

  • prognesubis

    TOS no CQP I have to get earlier next time.

  • YoungGunz

    I requested 5 mins after they’re supposed to open…Although I have requested 15 mins earl thinking it would put me in the opening queue but a broker popped in and handled my request…I thought they didn’t open until 7amest 6amcst.

    I’m at an all day meeting today so I didn’t bother reserving anything. I’ll be on the sidelines today.

  • tbohen

    I got 300 CQP, not sure WTF I’m supposed to do with 300 shares though…. Maybe it will drop $4 and I can make some money….

  • YoungGunz

    Haha, I am happy with $100 profit on a trade.

    AAPL short 86.33, cover 85.94…. DOX buy 1K@15.16, 5K@15.74, sell 6K@16.06… +$2800 within the first 11 minutes of the market, hold times a maximum of 3 minutes. Impatience (take your gains, dont get greedy) really saved me on both these, too bad I didn’t hang around and long AAPL, I didn’t want to risk it after it’s big gap up. Oh well, it’s just chopping now.

    Lost $1/sh on 500 ESI…. some losses on shorting MET (0.12), loss long LMT (0.30), CAT (0.01), BAC (0.04), LMT (0.30)… Net so far $1713…..

    Almost lunch time now in NY, some books say you can cut your losing trades by 50% just by staying out of the market for the next two to three hours while the big traders are at lunch and things tend to just chop along….. Yesterday I was ahead $2200 within the first 30 minutes or so of open, then gave back a few hundred during the rest of the day. Definite pattern here, done this several times. Things happen in early market way to quick to rely on alerts, so gotta watch the videos and read books and learn….

    no great plays today, take the day off and enjoy life when this happens

    AAPL looks like it will drop tomorrow, bounced off of 20 dma resistance and plotted a high wave candle stick. Plus GOOG got slammed after hours. Both of these guys will put tremendous pressure on the market tomorrow.
