For Yesterday And Today

The New York Stock Exchange traded quick out of the open today. I was able to get something with medium size which is good considering the shitshow that I put on yesterday.

I did not trade any other assets this morning because there was nothing in my radar. I didn’t want to force things either knowing that I’d feel like shit about my overall performance these last two days. Today was a good way to end the week but it only went so far as to erase the wounds suffered yesterday. I completely screwed up trading the British Pound and then, in an effort to get back into positive, could not separate my head from my ass in the cash open despite the precipitous drop we had.

I just didn’t feel like blogging yesterday because I was so pissed. The only good thing that came out of today was that I ended positive. I’m gonna go and mindlessly play video games for the rest of the day.


The New York Stock Exchange didn’t do much this morning.

I traded very limited size on both sets of trades – the cash open and Feeder Cattle (again). I was not as successful with livestock today as I was yesterday (or was it the day before?).

I’m tired.

That’s Gonna Be A No For Me, Dawg

The New York Stock Exchange opened up slowly yet again. I didn’t have the needed amount of volatility to take the kind of shots I wanted to take. I had a feeling this was going to happen. The way the market was moving preopen, I just felt like no one was interested in coming out with big orders – not for open at least.

With that being said, I traded Feeder Cattle this morning and took advantage of a quick move on size. I thought that it would be the start of a long and productive day for me but as soon as I saw how the cash open was, I realized that I just didn’t feel safe putting what I earned at risk. In the end, I decided to trade the bare minimum lots for the open and after 3 round trips my feelings were confirmed. I logged off and am now proceeding with the rest of the day.

I don’t know what I’ll do for the afternoon since I don’t have a whole bunch of things to take care of for the house. I would like to lounge around but it doesn’t feel like a lounging around kinda day for me. I need to do stuff. The wife is off today but she is sleeping in/watching Netflix in bed. I may just join her there instead.


The New York Stock Exchange opened up slowly today – far too slow for me to be able to do anything.

I traded a couple of round trips on size and I was like: “fuck this shit”. There was no point in trying to squeeze out some ticks. I traded Wheat this morning and that was where I made my cash. It would have made up for the lack of production on the cash open if I had sized up a little more but I just wasn’t comfortable with Wheat so whatever I got out of it was whatever I got.

How about those Patriots, huh? I knew they were gonna win but like a train wreck in slow motion that you just keep watching…well, you just keep watching. I won’t hate though – excellence is excellence and you gotta hand it to Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, it was a match made in heaven. Now I gotta deal with all these locals in their Patriots gear. It’s idiotic, but hey what a feeling it is to experience that kind of success, right?

Into The Abyss

The New York Stock Exchange probably had a couple of good minutes of action in the open but that was about it. After that, I just wanted to head out into the weekend.

I tried to trade Cocoa again but where I thought there was an opportunity, there was nothing. So there I was not doing any trading and hoping the cash open would be different. However, like I said before; while there were pockets of possibility, I just couldn’t make enough wine from the overwhelming basket of rotten grapes.

I’m going into the weekend now. I hate this job.
