The New York Stock Exchange didn’t really do much in the open but it started out with a sweet little move to the downside that I was able to take advantage of with size. Thank God for that trade and then the ensuing scalps because I really just wanted my Friday to be simple enough where I could concentrate on the task at hand and then head off into the weekend.
I didn’t have any other assets to trade outside of the cash open today which was kind of weird. I wanted to trade Feeder Cattle but I just didn’t like the way it looked in the morning and decided against risking capital. Everything else looked like it was under some type of Friday malaise so I just waited on the 9:30 opening. When it did, I was fortunate to be able to scalp for size and that’s what made the difference in the day. Truth be told, the morning wasn’t going to be worth it unless I could get in there for the number of contracts I wanted. I don’t think there was that much of a move outside of the beginning especially for the NQ. On these days, it’s just best to take the money thankfully and jump with the parachute.
As the title of the post suggests, I happened upon a song that encompasses the feeling of Summer 2017 for me. It’s funny because I hated the artist in the beginning. When he first popped up I was like :
“wtf??? The Weeknd???? what kind of dumbass shitwhistle stage name is that???
“new music is so dumb these days! we have someone that names themselves after the days in a week hahahaha!”
“take me back to when music actually made sense!”
So yeah, that was my initial reaction, but as time went on his music kinda grew on me. It’s also worth noting here that my fiancee does not want me dancing – for any reason – PERIOD. I usually have to carry her out to the dance floor with me when we’re at wedding receptions so I can break out my mate attracting moves in the middle of the floor for her. It obviously works since she’s still with me.
Oh, and there’s also an unofficial ordinance by our friends out in California that I am permanently banned from dancing within the city limits of Los Angeles.
But whatever! This song is EXACTLY what compliments my dancing style and I’m ready to embarrass her in front of her friends lolol.
So, being that I am thankfully and gratefully green on a Friday, I can go into these next two days relaxed and ready to refresh myself. There’s going to be outdoor cooking and swimming and just overall having fun.
I really am a very very fortunate person.
I don’t know about everyone else but I’m ready to bring in this first official weekend of summer 2017 USA.
