Google reader replacements

Dreaded day is around the corner. Google will abandon their don't be evil motto and kill reader. In last three months looking for replacement I found three that does job sufficiently. I don't know which will prevail because I'm still using google reader.

The Old Reader is what google reader was few years ago. It's probably my first choice for now but it's too soon to know.

Aol Reader is newcomer and surprise because it wasn't anticipated like Digg reader was (which I didn't see yet). It looks like polished product in early stage.

Netvibes is more than a reader. It's dashboard kind of platform, but can easily be configured just to use as a reader.

+9 pips
- news trade, spread up to 15 pips
- half size

+18 pips
- all half size trades
- initial news spike in gbp/usd wasn't convincing so I exit it quickly

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

-I'm not really proud of my averaging in eurjpy, risking much for no good reason. If I don't know where to put stop or don't want to accept that it's time for stop it's better not to trade that trade
- I'm far better in those nice scalping situation when stop or gain is quick and definite

Petition to save Google Reader

If you use this product as much as I do I'm sure you will want to sign it. This petition right now has more then 100,000 signatures. It doesn't mean that it will make Google reverse it's decision of shutting down reader but if I ever wanted to express my opinion and vote it's now for this.

+5 pips
- various sizes
- news trade with limit orders didn't work (no spike) so I canceled them

Thursday, March 14, 2013

+3 pips

+9 pips
- this news trading turns out to be quite nice sport
- third of usual size because on previous reports there were whipsaws, in previous few occasions move wasn't so big and lasted really only as initial spike that's why I closed it immediately
- good news after bad news in which Google announced shut down of Google reader

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

+6 pips
- not so good not knowing where my actual stop is, wan't prepared for this type of market action, I expected something easier
- half size trades

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

+15 pips

- I don't know why I didn't use before those bracket limit orders before the news if execution on Oanda is so good
- half size trades
- again problem with second add on trade, I just lowered my overall profit, move concentration away from first trade and made an exit at worst possible time
- third trade ok
- last two trades maybe holding on one of them longer
