(since so many blogs now are offering hot chick pxs to get reader's attention, we thought we'd go out on a limb too and offer some risqué content)

It's been a bit of a crazy week full of head-fakes and false break-outs. Between the three of us, we've traded only 6 times, average, this whole week but it feels like 600 (we don't know how scalpers do it day in, day out). If you want some examples of break-out failures this week check out charts of the Nasdaq, S&P, Homies (HGX), GS, and dozens more. With this kind of whip-sawing around, we're only day-trading these days with an empty swing account.

We made one trade today and spend the rest of the day catching up on our Blog reading. We're behind on our schedule so most of the following will be old news for faithful blog readers, but if you haven't already, check out

Blogs of interest

We have mentioned a number of blogs that we read in our previous posts and in our StockTickr interview . Aside from the usual suspects, here are some other ones definitely worth checking out -- most of you know them already -- but we've never actually acknowledged the following in any of our posts.

StockBee -- A smart guy who is very much on top of the IBD scene

StockTrading101-- Good overall summary of the day and some great technical analysis on charts

Chris Perruna -- Very good technical and fundamental analysis on some of our favorite momentum stocks

Wallstreetfighter -- when you need a break and a laugh, it's a great place to go. We should probably add some kind of semi-R rating for this site. Well, not really, but it's not exactly your usual stock trading fare....

Visual Trader -- this is the sister site to KnightTrader, one of our favorite sites. This one is geared towards lower-priced stocks.

IceColdStocks -- a very popular site featuring stock commentary on podcasts

TazTrader -- Good over-all commentary; geared more for swing-traders and valuable information for those of you interested in candlestick patterns.
