    Hello, old member here... I used to have a trade journal for this back on the old HSM boards, but it got wiped with everything else. Will see if I can rebuild it to some extent here. I built a system called Tech Trader a while ago to automate all my trading. Some of the old members will remember me talking about it when I first started building it around 2012-ish, posted its charts/trades for a while, and then kind of moved on to other things. In recent years I managed to get its trades posted on Twitter/Stocktwits as well, so I figure it'd be full circle if it came back to HSM as well and kept up a journal here.

    Right now, it's portfolio and trades feed can be found on its home page:
    https://www.techtrader.ai/?wall

    I'm going to see if there's some way to automate the posts onto here as well, but in the mean time, it's all there in the link above.

    And as before, if there's other people doing something similar, I'd be interested to chat and bounce ideas.

    I've had your stocktwits page bookmarked for a couple years now, I open it every day.
    I never saw the wall before with the heat map/entire position map, it looks nice.
    Just wanted to post here, because you've produced stuff that was interesting to me. Also I used to look over some of the helpful stuff you had on your page.

    Nice, glad it was helpful to someone out there. I just added the wall part of the page, so it's new. Got a bit tired of people thinking it was just some tweet or alert bot. I figure it'd seem more real to people if there was something they could actually watch update during market hours lol

    Finally got in touch with someone here, so hopefully will get the automated postings going soon.

    In the mean time, had a pretty nice day from $XLRN overnight on positive drug test results:
    https://twitter.com/TechTraderAI/status/1222288504845025280

    It was picked up via options activity. The trades overall tend to be almost more like fundamental bets than technical despite it being automated (probably because of the event catalysts present on many of the trades).

    I've limited the trading to just signals generated from watching options orderflow, that way it's fewer but higher conviction trades - makes it easier to keep up with and see what themes are going on. For example, right now it's basically only long healthcare names with trial results coming up (SNDX, KDMN, DCHP, MNTA) and short banks, student housing reits, and advertising (HSBC, ACC, NLSN). So it's less "quant-basket-like" and more stock picking here forwards.

    This is really interesting. Can you please share more information about that ? I am a trader, and I am making for living working on Fondex Forex Trading. I made a long way until I made my dream come true. I had a shitty job that I hated, but one day everything changed. One of my friends told me about Fondex Forex Trading and I started digging. I have read a lot about trading, and now I am a really successful trading. However, even though I earn a lot, I still want to learn more about trading and multiply my profit. This is why I think that it would be really great if you will share more information. Thank you in advance

    Portfolio has gone extremely bearish as the S&P climbed above 3000. This morning, it was actually at 0% long before adding a couple drug companies again (same theme, long drug companies and short everything else).

    Welcome to the forums.
    He cannot give any details about the software since it is part of a business now, and his share holders can sue him.
