I did not get to see how the New York Stock Exchange opened up because I’ve got a couple of things that I’ve had to get to and I need to do it as early in the day and as early in the week as possible. I did, however, trade the early morning British Pound opportunities and left with a good amount of ticks for a decent PnL day – that’s all I could really ask for given the constraints on my time.
I don’t really have all that much to say. A part of me is a bit annoyed and out of sorts but these kinds of things but as with any business, things come up and you’ve just got to take things in stride and reduce things to the most common denominator. It’s a beautiful day so there’s really no need to feel bad and I’ve been able to take money out of the market.
I don’t know how many more days out of the week I’m going to have to skip the cash open but from the way things look, I’ll probably have to do really early trading for the rest of the week. It’s not the way I’d like to work but now the question for me is whether putting my capital to work in those conditions will be optimal for the overall portfolio.
I love this day, I love my life but I really detest this business.
