The New York Stock Exchange was quiet today. It was too quiet for any real trading to get done. This was bad because I didn’t perform admirably in my asset trades.
I traded Cocoa this morning and did not make out particularly well considering the moves I could have caught. It was a positive PnL but the effort it took to juice it out was too much for me. Then, with the cash open the way it was, I diluted my profits even more despite not being on size.
All in all it was a very non-eventful day. I signed off on the market once I saw how badly it was trading and binge-watched movies and ate snacks all day. The wife was with her best friend for the afternoon so I got the house all to myself. I’m glad I didn’t lose money but sometimes, I just wish I could make money everyday. Times like this make me nervous.
