Welcome to Wall Street, Main Street and Me


Index to Trading Posts by Category

Disclaimer: Please know that I am an intermediate individual trader unaffiliated with ANY company other than having joined or been a member of mentoring programs like Options Animal, Wendy Kirkland, Optionetics, OptionsXpress (mentoring), etc. ALL of which I PAID monies to join. NO monies coming back at me from anywhere, so this is a blog about my own personal process which is shared for free with anyone interested. I am NOT selling anything! Except my point of view.

In the process of life itself, I lost my trading funds to recession related real estate pitfalls, but this month started trading again with a small $5K fund. See /CL Scalping Futures section at the bottom of this Index. Full disclosure.

This blog needs some organization for those returning to see different subjects. I'm going to try for an Index here of the main posts, with post dates:
