The New York Stock Exchange traded bearably this morning. I was able to get something even though I wasn’t sized up to full capacity.
I didn’t trade any other assets although I was kind of thinking to get into Wheat but the market was just too weird and I’m not in the mood to be sinking capital in if I don’t feel lie the market can justify it with the volatility.
In the end, I had an ok and productive PnL.
Not even a week after seeing our friend lose her father, I was hit with another phone call – this time from my mother – about a family friend of ours passing away from an aggressive cancer. I knew he was going to go but I was so surprised it was quick. He was diagnosed in late August. I will be driving down to New York this Thursday with the wife to attend funeral services.
