The New York Stock Exchange was sort of subdued this morning, not sure why as it’s only midterm elections. Still, I’m glad that it traded as it offered me yet another day and another opportunity to make money.
I traded the British Pound this morning and even though I was tempted to size up to my maximum exposure, I felt like it would probably be better to keep my expectations in check lest some big election news comes out to beat on the dollar. Good trading there. The cash open, even with a subdued risk profile didn’t net me the kind of money I would have wanted but I’ll let it slide as the British Pound more than made up for it.
I am exhausted. I don’t know what happened but yesterday’s errand running after work exacted a devastating toll on me and I could barely watch the nightly business news without nodding off on the couch. We are in the start of the home stretch here and I can’t wait to wrap up trading operations going into the holidays. I hate this job and all I want to do is sleep all day and eat junk food.
