The New York Stock Exchange opened up slowly save for two good moves that I could have taken advantage of. The crappy thing about all of today was that I could only take advantage of one of them.
I traded Orange Juice today and while I had a good set of trades based off of the total ticks, I left money on the table because I didn’t size to the maximum. Still it was a good day by most measures. The problem is, I don’t measure things in the same way. I want millions – every day of my life and if I don’t get that then every day is a failure. Lol. The cash open was more of a mixed bag as I did escape commissions costs but the PnL wasn’t as productive as it could have been.
The cable company has finally finished fixing the internet connection for the entire block and I am so happy that I no longer have to saunter into a Starbucks to trade. If there is one thing I have learned through this entire ordeal, it was that there are a shit ton of people hanging out in Starbucks and Barnes and Noble. I have no idea why. Don’t get me wrong, I would go to those places back in the day if I just wanted to chill but not like all the time, you know what I’m saying? That’s just weird, if you ask me.
Anyway, I’m tired. I have a full rest of the day into the evening as the wife and I are attending her little nephew’s birthday party. It won’t be all drab for me as it’ll be an opportunity to feign ignorance of competitive Halo or Madden football and then when a kid tries to test me, I’ll demolish him/her in front of all the little youngsters – show them where they stand in life hahahahahaaaaaaa!
