Back when I was trading stocks in 2008 to 2010, I would often purchase an equity at some point during the day and ride it up to profitability at the close—often alerted to its potential by unusually high volume—only to see it gap down the next morning and never return to the level at which I bought it. As a result, during that period I was only a break even trader. With what I knew then, I was never able to design a stock screen/filter that would return equities “guaranteed” to continue climbing the next day. In essence, FINRA’s pattern day trading rule was a barrier that prevented me from becoming a profitable trader by using my ability to select assets that would close the day higher than where I bought them. However, it appears to me that what I have learned trading foreign currency pairs from 2015 to today might just have handed me the key to cracking that nut from ten years ago. This journal is where I will evaluate just how valid/reliable this potentially rewarding approach to stock trading actually is, or is not.
