The New York Stock Exchange traded well albeit a little slowly compared to how its been trading lately. I had to go mobile today and trade at a Starbucks because there was just a whole lot of things to be done and I needed a head start on the day as soon as I dropped the wife off to work.
I did not have a productive day today. I sort of just broke even. My cash open performance was a mixed bag. I don’t know what it was but I just couldn’t get any consistency going with my trades and I ended up missing almost as much as I was hitting. The same held true on my other asset trades. While I started off with a good early morning trade on the Euro, I pretty much diluted the day with attempts to make some money in Feeder Cattle.
I certainly had higher expectations for today but in the end, I can’t be mad as the effects of portfolio rounding once again makes its presence felt. It’s just a part of the game, but not something I like. In a way, I’m glad that I’m rounding out the year by the end of the week. I’ll still be vigilant and trade the way I do, but maybe these last couple of sessions are a sign that I indeed should wrap things up for the calendar year.
