The New York Stock Exchange traded briskly this morning which was a surprise because I thought we were going to get another one of those days where we’d trade low and slow. Things have been kind of calm lately and we now have news that the North Korea denuclearization talks might be stalled or completely cancelled. I can’t say anything about that. I guess North Korea is looking forward to having their country levelled and replaced with condominiums, Wal-Marts, and McDonalds – things that are derided here in the United States but would prove to be an improvement of time-travel proportions to the citizens there.
Anywayyyyyyyyyyy…..today was an uphill battle for me. It wasn’t bad, it was just uphill for me from the very beginning. I took a handful of trades in the British Pound and Wheat and managed to break even after all was said and done in those two assets. When the equity index markets opened I though I’d get some nice green numbers in the PnL but in the end after a handful of trades losing and winning money, I won on balance but my net was just not as productive given what I wanted to make.
I’m gonna take it easy for the rest of the day. It looks like a nice day to go take the truck for a car wash. After that, I don’t know what I’d like to do. All I know is that I’d like to not think about trading until tomorrow when I fire up the rig. For now, I’d just like to be thankful to God and go on with the rest of the day.
