The New York Stock Exchange traded pretty aggressively out of the bell. I do not know where it is now but judging from the slippery-ness of the open, I wouldn’t be surprised if we are in triple digit gains or losses.
I traded Wheat this morning and because I wasn’t as sized up in the contract, my losses weren’t that bad. They were still losses though. And as much as I wanted to size up on the cash open, I just didn’t feel like this was the day to do it. The result was that even though this would have been a strong trading day, I was not as productive as I would have liked to be.
Nothing much else to report here. I am thankful that I didn’t lose money. Now I’m off to do some Christmas shopping.
