The New York Stock Exchange traded a little slow this morning. I don’t know if it’s the news about Trump’s lawyer or what but it looks like everyone is holding their breathe. It doesn’t help either that Stormy Daniel’s lawyer is saying how Trump’s lawyer will “fold like a deck of cards”. That should be enough to spook the markets because if there is “impropriety” discovered here, then that’s just really bad. I say the word impropriety in quotes because there’s too much tainting going on with the President. I believe that there are some pretty big interests at work here and what we’re seeing is the pushback of an institution vs. the modern coming of Theodore Roosevelt and his Moose Party.
It’s been a week since I’ve started to feel sick and I am barely functioning at this point. I don’t know how I’m doing it but I can say that I am doing it quite badly. You ever get so sick that only the most important things stick in your mind and everything else gets tossed aside? You just care about getting through your day. You don’t care about minute details. You’re just a truck with a huge battering ram going through whatever priorities you need to get through. This has been me for this week so far. I did not do particularly well on both fronts today but the only thing that I could say is that I wasn’t loaded up size wise and commissions barely edged me out. It would have been better had I not traded but I have to get up in the morning and slug it out with the market if I’m going to have something to take home and buy stuff with.
I’m thankful to God for such a beautiful day and a wife that is caring enough to offer to take a day off to watch me. I told her to go to work and that I’ll be in bed for most of the day. The truth is, I cannot afford to stay in bed but I am really worried that this could turn into something more serious so whenever I get a chance to rest, I really take it.
