I'm a newbie trader, looking to get into the financial markets and try to make a life for my self in there. I've found that I'm fairly emotional when it comes down to putting money on the line like this so I thought I would write this journal. It calms me down knowing I have at least some kind of plan to work my way through these trade positions. I'm also a fairly keen python developer, I guess I can call myself a "developer" although I'm more of a script jockey. I can build scanners and interact with my brokerage account programatically. Not a quant by any stretch but I do have some skills, I would consider my knowledge of python and my passion for the markets my main edge.
