The New York Stock Exchange had a pretty decent morning. However, I felt like action started to dry up a little bit towards the mid-get-go and decided to call it a day. Besides, I’m just really tired. More on that after the rest of today’s report.
I traded the British Pound early this morning and while I wasn’t sized up, I did put on more contracts than half my max so in the end, I made out with fairly decent cash even though my first trade went sideways for more than a handful of ticks. Then, it was the cash open and I sized up there. I wasn’t able to get a good read on the market so in the end, while I was profitable in the beginning my last couple of trades saw me lose more almost half of what I made to start. That’s a pretty good reason to close up shop – in fact, it would have been better had I closed up one I lost a quarter of the PnL.
I can’t believe it’s already November. As you know, I’m tired and miserable. I can’t stand this career and I’m hoping that me or my wife strike the lottery. There is much to be thankful for though and I plan on living out today being graceful about fortune being with me.
