The New York Stock Exchange traded with some real energy today. I like it when you’ve got those kinds of bursts in the morning, it’s a lot easier to try and make money. Notice how I didn’t say it was easier to make money, I said it was easier to try and make money. There is a world of a difference between those two, an impassable chasm that makes me want to throw up every time I have to turn this computer on to trade.
Anyway, As you can tell by my opening statements, I had the kind of market that I needed to have in order to get some nice green numbers in the PnL. I didn’t have to make much of an effort and with size, all I had to do was get in at the points where I needed to get into and wait for the waters of buying and selling to take me where I needed to be; on the island of Profit. It was the same with my asset trades although the difference here was I didn’t really get all that much and was on reduced size because nothing was moving for me in Wheat.
All in all, it was a good way to start the week and I am thankful to God for this strong start. Does that make me more risk averse for tomorrow? Who knows. The right answer is that I don’t really give a bumblebee’s crap because tomorrow is a new day and my responsibility as a trader is to trade in the moment. Speaking of which, I’ll end this post by saying how thankful I am and that I hope the rest of the day is splendid.
