Site Update

From September, 2016 until September, 2021 I posted nightly scan results to this site. I also traded select results as multi-day to multi-week swings between 2017 and 2019 with 100% of the trades being profitable. At the end of 2019, I found myself in position to switch to day trading full-time, and have done so successfully for over 2 years now.

I had been meaning to provide this update for some time now. Being that the strategy and philosophy of my day trading is different from the swing strategy I have documented here for 5 years, I have discontinued the nightly scan update.

I am proud of what I was able to accomplish in the site's prior format. I originally had lofty goals; to not only discern trading ideas from my scan results, but to eventually build a community, and generate subscription income. I quickly realized that it would be a tall order to provide customer service, and this would all require full-time attention, which would also be antithetical to the "Trade on the Side" (part-time trader) spirit of the site.

I have found trading to be a great fit for my personality and provides the perfect type of challenges for my mind to be engaged as a career, day-in and day-out. As a core value, continuous improvement is a focus, so I would like to use this site to document successes, challenges, and failures going forward. This will help me to eventually reach my full potential as a trader, and hopefully someday inspire others to be better traders.

Scan Results Update

Beginning tomorrow, April 20, 2021, we are implementing a new scan format.

Previously, we only scanned for stocks closing with a price per share between $0.75 and $90. The new parameters will simply scan for stocks closing with a market capitalization of greater than $1 Billion.

We are making this change, as it aligns better with our current trading style and objectives.
