Another Weekend That's For HouseKeeping

Read Full Post.....

Ok, so I tried using Bracket Trader last week. Unfortunately, with Medved QT and IB both up and running, once I ran Bracket Trader, my CPU usage hit 100%. After a few seconds, things became slow, real slow with using Bracket Trader. Even trying to exit the program took a long time.
It's becoming increasingly clear that my current Pentium4 laptop does not have enough horsepower to handle my trading needs. I guess that I should take that as a sign that I should get a new computer for trading.

Babak’s stock trading blog, Trader’s Narrative, is having its first trading blog contest. He’s giving away six months of access to Analysis Over Emotion in the Stock and Bond Markets! To enter, all you have to do is to write about the contest. I figure I could use all the extra help I can get to improve my futures trading. Here is how you can enter this trading blog contest.

And, last but not least, thanks to the TLA advertiser, I got paid today! TLA is by far, the better ad system than stupid Google's AdSense. Yes, Google's AdSense sucks in a major way for the small-time publisher. They have my ad money hostage, and are making millions, if not billions from the poor small-Time AdSense publisher's upaid AdSense money.

I just realized I made more from my TLA ad than from my trading for all of March. I don't know whether to laugh or to cry, though I have a slightty morbid feeling that it is the latter option that I should be choosing.....

My bi-phasic sleeping experiment has not been a success so far. I've been generally sleeping in two 3hr segments at night, with a single 10-20 minute nap in the daytime. It's really hard to nap for the whole 90minutes at a time, and I'm just doing what my body is telling me to do.
When I first read about it, it sound interesting and made sense. But now, I am realizing that it will take more effort to adhere to a biphasic sleeping schedule, and I'm lacking the motivation to follow the schedule.
