Categories

As you can see above this post, I have added something called "TRADER-X BLOG CATEGORIES". I think you will find it beneficial.

The idea is that you can click on the category and be taken to a list of the posts that fall under it.

I think most of the categories are self explanatory. But here are a few that may not be:

> "tradingtools" - this is a "catch-all" that will include anything to benefit your trading - be it software, strategy, thoughts/wisdom, interviews, et cetera.
> "xblogstuff" - things specific to this blog and how it works.

The only issue with the posts in blog categories is that they are in no particular order - you may see posts from last year, followed by posts from yesterday, followed by posts from two weeks ago. I would like the posts to be in chronological order, but I did not want to invest that much time in the process! The only thing it really affects is the charts - if you are new to the blog I would focus more on the charts from the past six months, as I may not trade all of the set-ups featured in some of the charts from a year ago. But, they are all there for you to see.

Also, this is a good time to remind new readers and everyone else to visit the links at the top of every page (under PLEASE READ BEFORE EMAILING QUESTIONS) for FAQ, Key Posts, and other information that probably answers 99% of the questions you might have.

Note - I am sure I missed "categorizing" some posts (or "mis-categorized" some posts) - if you run across any, just shoot me an email.

PS - if you are bored, don't forget to check my del.icio.us links on the lower right.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I should get all the posts "categorized" by the end of the month. Then it will be easy to search. Have a good weekend.

I still have not categorized all the posts - I did not realize I have made so many!

I hope to have everything done by Thanksgiving.
