Just ran into this highly entertaining weblog, Churning and Burning. A daytrader at a New York prop firm lost a few bucks in trading some OTC/Pink sheets stocks. Nothing new here, except for the fact he sure knows how to write. The hilarious MS Paint graphics are the icing on the cake.
Although I do know some daytraders who are consistently profitable for many years, daytrading isn’t my game (and “technical analysis”.. ah nevermind). However, I assume everybody in the business has once taken a six figure hit on a bad day (at least, I did). Or sat next to someone who did.
Anyway, with markets slowing down towards christmas it’s a funny read during the day. The guy is not only a comedian, has got some smart things to say.
