Trader Monthly Review Roundup For January 2007

On a monthly basis, several bloggers review their trading and I thought it would be a good idea to try to collect them all and put them together in one post-of-links.

Many give great insights into the past month of trading and it's great to see what various bloggers have learned and the difficulties some of us had. By doing this, I hope that readers out there can learn or perhaps even relate to what we, as trading bloggers, went through during the past month.

Last month I couldn't find the time to collect everyone's performance (what with all the holidays and such). But it's that time of the month again, so here's this month's roundup:

If there is a monthly review that is not listed or if you have a monthly review that is not listed, let me know via comments and I'll include it ASAP.

Update 1 (Feb 3, 7:00PM) - Added Globetrader's ( review to the list

Update 2 (Feb 4, 10:00PM) - Added Phil's ( review to the list



  • Aggh, what you done! I logged on to the net for a quick surf and I ended up spending an hour going through these links. It's an interesting compilation of monthly results across markets. Good stuff indeed. Your own results for Jan 2007 are really good, and not too far off your best month. Watching with interest, Caravaggio.

    PS - May be interesting to add Globetrader to the list. His blog is pretty interesting ( and he ends up doing a technical analysis on his own equity line!

  • Hey JC :

    When I did a Google chart search for Valero; there was your "My Fat Friends" blog comment referenced under Google's Blog Post.

    Your comments are being read all over the place.

    Very cool.

  • Anon@7:18PM,
    Thanks for your comments. Yea, lately I've been getting a lot of hits from Google searches. More than 1/3 of my traffic is now coming from Google searches for specific stocks (from Google's finance site via the Blog Posts section). I guess the more the merrier! Have a great weekend!

  • Very useful list - let me know how we can be added for tracking.

    As you may know we do weekly and monthly wrap-ups and the spreadsheets are available to members immediately and non-members about 2 weeks later.

    Our latest monthly is posted at we don't do a portfolio total per se as it's mainly options opportunities, we tend to track average gains on closed positions...

    Great reads on your site by the way, I'll be steering some people your way after the game (or, more accurately, after the aftermath of the game, which could be a few days!).

    - Phil

  • Phil,
    Thanks for your comments. Hey - I just checked my Bloglines and it looks like I had my feed still pointing to your old Wordpress blog! (which is why I probably missed your review!). I've updated it now and I shall now be following your blog...I'll also update the post to include your great results!
