April 12, 2011- Welcome (This blog—is continued at www.facelesstrader.wordpress.com)

Welcome to DimsumTrader Blog. DimsumTrader began as a personal trading diary to help me think aloud about trading and market psychology, market patterns, and the short-term trading of financial markets. I would read articles (primarily HK in nature), place news links and write my own preplist sheets for the day due to the nature of … Continue reading

April 10, 2011- Like the Japanese, B Students and Sleepless Elite

Morning, First, I want to thank the people who tell me that they like my writing style.  It’s great that you guys weren’t my Literature and English professors back in college, where I got C+s and Bs haha.  I never really got the professors to like my writing.  So for anyone, who’s failing in your … Continue reading

April 9, 2011 – The Cockroaches and the Bees

Note: Rubiks who is very concerned with my health and privacy told me not to post anything negative anymore.  These are all children’s games and I’m an adult.  I don’t need to write these things anymore. I am apologizing right now, for writing this post. I feel that it needs to be said, even indirectly. … Continue reading

April 8, 2011- I need some cash to date new girls

My HK Trading Story I know that I know how to trade.  I know that I can make money.  I know that I should be patient. I’m human.  I can get tempted. Think of trading as though you are in a relationship.  I’m sure most traders probably analogize their stocks with their girlfriends anyway. Here’s … Continue reading

April 7, 2011- Celebrate Successes, Respect Elders and Be a Sponge

Celebrate your successes. – Once you’ve lightened down some of your gains, after an impressive run-up in the markets, I offer my unsolicited opinions.  😀 This is my blog so I can talk whatever I want. (Understand the difference between selling and lightening: Read “Don’t fall in love“) To the gentlemen:  Have a good dinner … Continue reading

April 7, 2011 – Dont fall in love. —with a stock , that is :)

I love to reflect.  As a person, I just love thinking and thinking all day.  I’m both a dreamer and a thinker at the same time.  I find myself not listening to the teacher unless I’m really interested with what he/she’s talking about.  I generally have my own thought bubble sometimes.  I’m a little bit … Continue reading

April 7, 2011 – Trade Opportunity, Not Your Mood

You want to be trading opportunity, not your mood of the moment. – Brett Steenbarger Is it time to be aggressive? Are you sleeping today thinking how much money you’ll make tomorrow?  Are you counting your profits before you’ve even sold it?  Are you imagining tomorrow’s going to be another strongly trending up day?  Believe … Continue reading

April 5, 2011 – A New Day. Reset. Restart.

A few days ago, I have done an emotional decision after an emotional decision.  I’ve acted like a drama queen.  If you convert the things that I’ve done to trading, I essentially just blew away and didn’t manage my risks.  I over-leveraged myself, I averaged down and I argued with the market why I’m not … Continue reading

April 3, 2011 – You are not good. The Market Was Just On Fire

Joe the Upside Trader wrote quite a nice post Even God is Long today.  The best takeaway for me is: Remember that you’re not that good, the market was just on fire. – Joe UpsideTrader Don’t take my word for it.  Read his entire post 🙂 Well, I’m personally too bullish and happy about the … Continue reading

April 2, 2011- The Financial Media’s Undisclosed Conflict of Interest (Henry Blodget)

Highlights from the article: http://www.slate.com/id/2109465 Without the media, Wall Street would surely be even more dangerous to the uninitiated than it already is, and many practices deserving of reform would never be noticed. Of course, there’s no free lunch, and as we feast on gripping stories of price moves, dueling predictions, and conflicts-of-interest, we should keep … Continue reading
