Back on

EDIT: In case you hadn't figured it out already, you need to type in OO (as in the letters, not the numbers) to get my twitter username: oonr7. Sorry for the confusion.

Vacation's actually been over for me for just over a week now. However, due to jet lag and two little kids running around, I've had little time to post. Trading's been pretty good through the summer which is encouraging considering the typical summer action I've been used to.

On a personal side, I am going to get more involved in the whole social media scene as I feel like I've been pretty lax about it. I'm not used to playing catch up when it comes to online activity... especially since I worked for an online news site for over 5 years (and I definitely have time on my hands). So, I've started up my old, personal twitter account that I opened about 18 months ago (I had good intentions) and I created a new twitter account for OONR7. You can find me at
I hope all of you will follow me so I can have the incentive to get it going. I'm hoping for some good feedback and will be another foray into a live trading-like atmosphere. Let's see how it goes. I will continue to post here, but I'm just not sure if it will be every day or just the best of the best setups. Time will tell. So long as your RSS feed is working, you'll have nothing to worry about.

As for today, I had one nice trade with BHI and another in NE which never really materialized. But I'll take the results.

I would like to point out that it is not zero zero nr7 but O as in Oliver - I had trouble finding you on twitter and then typed the letters instead of zeros.

Welcome back and I see you're using 13 ema 5min chart which traders use. I switched over to 15min 5 ema when got hooked on Tr X. But the 5"/13ema makes sense. One might be able to just depend on that alone. Thoughts?

Tom T: thanks for pointing that out. I'll make a clarification on the blog.

bl: I think the shorter the timeframe the less reliable the 5ema becomes. So, I just started looking at different areas of support/resistance. The 13ema on the 5-min seems to be a pretty comfortable area to trade.

I'm a bit behind the times, so I'll ask the question...what is twitter?
Have heard the phrase banded about, but never bothered to find out.

am: twitter is a social networking site. Basically, you write (in less than 140 characters) whatever is on your mind. You follow people (to see what's on their mind) and they follow you.
It really has become a very interesting place to visit just for the search feature alone. You can search for any term and if someone's mentioned it in their tweet... you'll see it. So, if you like photography, you can type that in and see what people are talking about.
