One page Stock

Alright.. That was a long absence. The whole last week I dint blog. I dint go away. I was "occupied". I was learning stock trading. Its very fascinating. I have a good weeeked blog for you all. Here is my experience.
I can literally hyper-link every word from the following paragraphs, but I am writing it as simple as I can so you can look up the italicised words in wikipedia.
I got a paper trading account from a brokerage firm. You need one brokerage account first. Then it can be an Equity account where all your money is yours or a Margin account, where some of the money is lent by the brokerage firm. Then I get Buying power, which is the dollor value of how much stocks you can buy.

I can make profit by simple rules. Buy when Price is low. Sell when price is high. There is another more intersting way of earning money. Selling short. Thats when price is not high, per say, but when are confident that the price WILL go down. then buy back when its lowest. This is what you can bank on when the market is Bear:)

There are some other rules that are not rules as such, but are simple axioms that will save you from losses because of your zelous anxiety. Especially in intra-day trading. Like dont sell when you have lost a lot and the price is falling further down.. cool it off. judge the good price, wait for a day, place a limit order over night. Reverse logic applies to buying (and buying to fill a short sell).

Then there are profit maximisers.. Especially when you are actively looking at streaming quotes.. Like.. Dont BUY when you THINK it is the lowest price. its okay to wait for a couple more pips to see if it lowers further. if it gains a little, its fine. and the same reverse applies to SELL.

This aint a crash course on stock trading and I disclaim [:)] this to be taken as a serious advice for it. But if you are interested in trading stocks with this.. AND make some money. I am glad :)

Add jquery in Chrome console

Many a time, a page you are debugging doesnot have jquery. This simple js will add(or prompt you to overwrite) jquery to any page from chrome console.

javascript:if(!window.jQuery||confirm('Overwrite\x20current\x20version?\x20v'+jQuery.fn.jquery))(function(d,s){s=d.createElement('script');s.src='https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8/jquery.js';(d.head||d.documentElement).appendChild(s)})(document);

Javascript: Convert Strings to Binary (and representing in a nerdy way!)

I follow those GoogleDevelopers Videos. Sometime back, in one of the presentations on GoogleIO, there was this interesting string of dots at the bottom of each page of the presentation. They looked like random big and small dots. A similar bunch of dots were also on the T-shirt of a presenter was wearing in another presentation. While it seemed something in the pattern, I could not find what it was. Finally, another presenter cleared the matter that those dots are just binary representation of "GOOGLEIO" (So much for advertizing Google IO, Impressive!).

So I wanna do it. Takes me back to days of those DSP classes at school. Nerdy me had to churn some old brain cells. I remember those first programming language classes in Pascal and C when you were asked to do fibonacci series and converting a binary string to ascii codes. That *experience* came handy here: Check it out!

For those who came to copy the javascript code to convert string to binary, Here it is…
