The New York Stock Exchange traded…ehhhhh…kinda ok. It’s to be expected anyway given news and where we are in the year.
I traded Cocoa as well as the cash open. I wasn’t sized up on both but I wasn’t on the small side either. The result was about as decent of a PnL as I could have had not playing too conservatively but definitely riding the engine brake.
This year was pretty good going into the end. Lots of things to be thankful for but I still hate this job. I’m still exhausted from the flu I had last week and so I will have to put off the remainder of my Christmas shopping until Christmas Eve itself. It’s a beautiful holiday and I am actually really thankful I can celebrate it with my new wife and family and friends. I was gonna try to write something profound to leave y’all with but the only thing I can say is that I hope 2019 gives you guys money. This is a hard endeavor and that’s why it’s important to value your mental/physical health. Don’t overwork and put trading in its proper perspective: it’s gambling and it ain’t your friend. Make sure you look out for the people that look out for you.
I’m so glad I won’t have to look at a depth of market window for the next two and a half weeks. I’ll savor that time.
See you guys in 2019. Now is the time to celebrate the occasion of our savior’s birth – definitely a special thing, unlike this dumb job.
