The New York Stock Exchange traded pretty quickly this morning out of the bell. I’m glad because this is the second day in a row that these types of opportunities have abounded for me. It is especially helpful for reasons I’m about to go into.
I woke up a little before 5 to see if there were any markets that I could trade – specifically, the currency or bond markets. There was nothing moving so I just hung out. I was anticipating something in the British Pound but the formation never came to fruition so I just decided that it would be best if I concentrated my efforts in the cash open. I wish I had made money in New York but I just traded shitty towards the end of my book. I started out great and then things just went sideways. Luckily I wasn’t sizing up any longer on those trades so it helped to protect the gains in the PnL.
In the end, while there is much to be desired money-wise for today, I am positive and that’s something I’m willing to end the day on. I don’t give a fuck about anything else today. I’ve just been barely waking up when I need to wake up and I’m going through the day super tired and minimally functioning. Still thankful though.
Still hate this dumb career.
