It’s Only Monday

The New York Stock Exchange traded with the force of a tsunami this morning. And when the market moves like that, it makes me a very happy man.

I didn’t trade any assets this morning but I did give Feeder Cattle a go with a handful of contracts. I didn’t get much out of that trade but I took the round trip and decided to concentrate on the cash open because it really looked like we were in for something. And it was. I was max sized and the rest is history.

I am thankful for days like this. It helps me more than I can ever put down in words.

I am really tired. I don’t know how much longer I can keep trading heading into December. I really want to pad my earnings as much as possible and work as little as I have to come next month. I wish I had a rich uncle that died and left me a vast fortune.

Going Into The Weekend In A Stretcher

The New York Stock Exchange came out slow this morning. There was just no need for me to try and overdo trading. I took what I could like a little mouse in the kitchen at 2 in the morning and bounced.

I traded Feeder Cattle this morning and while I had 2 good sized trades with decent ticks, I pretty much killed my PnL trying additional trades. It sucks but…yeah. The cash open was like I said; slow and non-eventful. I walked away with a small PnL and coupled with Feeder Cattle, brought home a below average day’s wages.

I do care, but in a way, I am also apathetic. I’m tired as fuck and I hate this job.

 

Dude, I’m Done

The New York Stock Exchange traded slowly today with the FOMC anticipation. I didn’t size up at all which, in hindsight, I wish I did because I didn’t like the way Orange Juice was moving so I didn’t trade it. That left me with basically a small loss on the cash open trades as I could never really get things going.

I am so tired. I don’t know how I’m gonna trade tomorrow. If I sleep within the next two hours, I may just have enough energy to attack tomorrow morning.

 

I Am Running On Fumes

prof8The New York Stock Exchange traded quickly despite the spectre of the FOMC and the “blue wave” being nothing more than a blue droplet. The Democrats disappoint me. With all of their hype and ramble, they didn’t put up much of a fight when it came to the Senate and the governorship. Everyone knew that they were gonna take the House but it wasn’t even like it was a lock for them as they would have wanted to make you think.

In the end, they were all pomp and bluster – like the bullying self-righteous mobs they employ to whip up a social media frenzy.

Ok, I’ve written too much now. I’m honestly too tired to post. I didn’t do well on the asset trades with Cocoa and made only enough to wash that negative PnL out in the cash open. I was sized halfway to my max point on both sets of PnLs.

God, please….give me like 200 million dollars and I’ll live out the rest of my days in a simple humble manner: back in the bayous of Baton Rogue eating crawfish, boudin and alligator meat….

….in my Ferrari F12.

..in front of my 20 acre farm..

..with my 3500 diesel parked out front..

..wearing only gold linen boxer shorts, an original Stetson cattleman hat and a snakeskin t-shirt…

…blogging from my shiny new iPad pro..

…waiting for my personal shopper to drop off bags from Hermes, Cartier & Brioni.

…that’s all I want….

I’m a simple man.

 

Vote For Me! (Give Me Money!)

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.

Monday

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.

Makin My Way Downtown

The New York Stock Exchange traded pretty well this morning. But it inexplicably slowed down just when I was starting to shake off the morning rust.

I didn’t trade any assets today so I really kinda needed a good cash open performance. I didn’t get it to the degree that I needed but the money was enough – can’t complain.

As you can see, I’m not in much of a posting mood. I’m thankful that I didn’t lose money but on days like this, I know that I’m one more day towards the next crucible in my life. The thing that scares me the most is that I don’t have as much control of things as I would like to think I do.

I wish – especially in things pertaining to money – I could just smash through life’s issues with my truck and it would be solved. As it is, I am here contemplating on how to survive, like I always do knowing that at some point my luck will inevitably run out.
