Odds and Ins

Sorry guys, didn't have time to post yesterday and have not had the chance to update my trades. I hope to catch up this weekend.

A number of stocks on my bullish watchlist are pulling back, which is great. However, some of them has gapped down to their buypoints, which is not so great. I may take a few low risk pilot positions, but I won't do much more today.

Off Topic:
One of my new year resolutions is to research and ultimately trade currencies via the forex market. The main reason is I would like to put on short term day trades, but cannot in stocks since I work full-time during the day. The forex market is open 24 hours, which would allow me to carve out an hour or two on my off time to apply some short term strategies I have been working on.

I've done some research and will now start demo trading. If anybody knows of any good demo and trading platforms, please e-mail me. My e-mail is SinghJD1@aol.com

I am not sure who to believe in the Roger Clemens steroid saga. However, there is one thing I am sure of: Congress should not be involved. What a waste of time and money.

The NBA's Western Conference keeps getting stronger. I am going to stick with the defending champ Spurs as my top pick, but the Lakers sure look good with the addition of Gasol. I have no idea how the Shaq deal will effect Phoenix. Even if the trade works out, I still have not idea why Kerr did not pull the trigger on the KG deal this summer. I'd rather have Nash, Marion and KG than Nash, Amare and Shaq.

Lost keeps getting better.

Why don't more people watch Friday Night Lights? It's the second best show on television, after Lost.

Friday Night Lights is the truth!! Terrible ratings but fantastic cast and great storyline.

Lakers are going to be great but in the end its Pistons all the waaaaaaaaaaay.

A lot of those forex brokers are crooks, and the bid/ask spread will kill you. The Chicago markets offer the best currency trading, and offer it on an electronic platform, Plus, they're regulated and backed by the clearing house. Even though I use a lot of Tradestation(and they offer currencies+, I get my currency action down in Chicago.

I don't see much hope for the Pistons, as long as the Celtics big 3 are healthy for the playoffs.

Thanks for the forex info, Jeff.
