The New York Stock Exchange traded with good energy this morning. I don’t remember what it was that shook the markets but I know it has something to do with geopolitics. Nevertheless, if there’s movement in the markets, then there’s a chance for me to make money. I need the markets to move because if they don’t I become worried and when I become worried nothing happens.
I traded The British Pound this morning and I only did less than a handful of roundtrips before coming away with a relatively nice score on size. Now, with such a beautiful PnL number I debated whether or not it was worth it to even trade the cash open. However, I have faith in myself and knowing what to do riskwise so I didn’t really think much of it. I know when to get out and I know when to stay. These are things that have served me well throughout this ill-fated career and served me well today. I just felt like after such a great performance in British Pound futures, there was just no way I was going to be able to do the same at the cash open. I felt it right away as my size trades went nowhere and went nowhere fast. I decided to call it a day before the damage became inexcusable.
It is a really muggy day today here in the East Coast of the United States. It’s the perfect day to veg out and enjoy some beer and snacks. I don’t know if I have any snacks in the house so beer will have to do. I may have the capability to go and create a peanut butter sandwich. That is a major plus among the many blessings that God has given to me.
