The New York Stock Exchange traded pretty well out of the box today. I was really really tired getting up this morning and considering not trading but there are bills to pay so that’s that.
Anyway, I didn’t trade with a lot of size today. I took one trade in the cash open with size but upon seeing how brisk the action was, I figure I would take some risk off the table and trade smaller but hold longer. In the end, it was mentally beneficial and I was able to get some good PnL numbers. I would say that it was a productive day overall. I didn’t trade any assets because I didn’t feel like there was anything worth sinking money into.
I’d like to get off to a good start for 2019 because I don’t want to feel the pressure when September rolls around to make bigger trades. If I’m gonna go hard I’m gonna go hard in the first quarter of this year before traders start getting into holiday mode. I’m thankful to God that I’m well and balanced financially and that I have my wife. I shouldn’t complain so I won’t…for now, lol.
