Market beat us this month. But, it was a winning month and a good start to the new year. I'll take it.

I'm doing something different for 2012. Reading Diary of a Commercial Commodities Trader from Peter Brandt gave me the idea. Peter does a great job of analyzing his trades from a chart technician perspective in real-time through the book. I normally don't care what the charts look like in choosing my trades. Just take the signals the system gives me.

But, the system often generates too many trades for the amount of cash I have on hand. I've not had a good handle on which of the few from the many I should select for that day's cash on hand. For 2012; I'll analyze each signal's chart before and after the trade. See what patterns emerge from this analysis. Worst case...just a bunch of random charts with no impact to the bottom line. Best case...I find a filter or new criteria to add to my system's signal selection process.

Finally, want to thank my family for a wonderful visit in Texas. Great food and conversation. Awesome trip!

Later Trades,

The major benefit of L-arginine is on how it can boost a healthy circulation of your blood flow. If you have good circulation in the body, the L-arginine turns into nitric oxide, to let the blood vessels open wider. Other positive benefits include better immune function, normal fertility, detoxification and healthy memory

Birth control isn't going to fix the underlying problem. Once you stop birth control, the hormones are out of your system within a couple days - leading to a withdrawal bleed. When you stop the birth control, you will continue to have irregular periods.

It sounds like you are not ovulating. You need to see an ob/gyn with experience in infertility, or a fertility specialist/reproductive endocrinologist to find out what the cause it. Some causes of irregular periods (hyper/hypothyroidism) can affect a growing fetus (not to mention the affects on your health) and need to be treated first. Good luck! I also have many suugestions about the ovulation through this

Online ovulation calculators like are based on mathematical calculations. It is based on your period length and also your last period date. It's accurate for most people but everybody is different!
