F K!

The New York Stock Exchange traded so so today. I was sized up half of full capacity today hoping that I could go into the weekend with a green PnL. That was not going to be the case today.

I got wrecked on Feeder Cattle. Basically, when I went long, it sold. When I sold, buyers came in. It was horrible. But most importantly, it was a huge deficit that I could not recover from. But that still didn’t stop me from hoping I could do so. I went in to the cash open hoping that I could do some damage control but as I traded more and more round trips, I realized that I was getting to a point where my luck would run out and before I could make a series of losing trades, I just signed off knowing that I did what I could to make the PnL look a little more respectable.

So here I am, sitting in the study desk typing this out. I’m pretty pissed about today. Maybe a little gaming and spending time with the wife will help.

God, I hate this job.

Couldn’t Concentrate Today

The New York Stock Exchange traded pretty well today. But the thing was, I performed in a not so good way. I don’t know what it was, I just had a crappy performance. I think I just need to reset for the weekend and clear my mind. This week, I’ve gone from enjoying a really good market to getting kicked around like a dirty rag in a mechanic shop.

I wasn’t sized up but I was trading with relatively decent size so any losing trade was really gonna hurt. And it did when I lost. All in all, I came out green on the PnL, but I barely broke even. It was the same with Orange Juice as I would trade well then trade shitty. Both times, commissions were going to play into my final PnL so I just let everything be and signed off.

It wasn’t the kind of day that I wanted but if I’m going to lose then it’s better to lose small and be thankful for it.

Turn Out The Lights, The Party’s Overrrrrr

The New York Stock Exchange traded slowly. This is what I pretty much I expected after the markets being so quick and liquid. I was just hoping I could get in one more day of good trading so that I wouldn’t feel bad about possibly taking the Friday off. I may still do it but only if I have a decent day tomorrow .

I was sized up on my asset trades and in the cash open. Wheat was going great until I hit my last two trades and it all but erased the PnL I built up. Then, with the cash open, I realized too late that things were going to be too slow for my size and I ended up having to dig myself out of a hole that was too big to realistically expect profiting out from.

I don’t know what it was but man, I was just tired around this afternoon. I meant to go out and get some groceries but I figure I’ll just wait for the wife to get done with her working from home day and we’ll just head out together. Least I got to take a nap. It’s yet another blessing I’m afforded besides not shitting my pants in today’s market. Thank God for that.

Still, it would have been nice to have another wild day sized up.

Bernanke, You Fox You

The New York Stock Exchange was delicioso today, magnifico, like *muah!*, sexy-o…yeah, anyway.

Of course, this is great if you were short but if you based your positions today on being long – may Jesus Christ and his brother, Jimmy-boy Christ, be with you.

I love it when the cash markets open fast and hard. I was sized up to the maximum allowance that I could go and it really really paid off. It took some of the sting off of breaking even in British Pound earlier in the morning.

I don’t really care anymore for the market after I wrap up this post. I made my money and now it’s time to chill and watch some TV. Oh, btw – I love how China is going to flood the market with bonds. You know what? If you wanna do that..cool bro. That’s why the Fed spent the last 8 years becoming the biggest holder of treasuries to date. Man, Bernanke really foresaw this situation happening and it’s amazing how the administration at the time was so willing to spread America’s ass cheeks on everything from foreign policy to trade just so they could say they chalked up a win for foreign affairs and their own retarded progressive agenda. All the while, they would be sacrificing domestic employment and GDP here. It’s time for the reckoning everyone, and if it keeps moving the markets the way it did today, I may have the type of summer where a movie about it deserves an epic ending song soundtrack – a japanese pop one baybeeeeee

Uber-Trader

The New York Stock Exchange traded a little too slow for my tastes despite the addition of Uber, the ride-hailing app that is great for people like me that can use the service all the time, but on the flipside, they buttfuck their drivers to the point where it’s almost stupid to even work for them. I feel sorry for all these saps in big cities like San Francisco and New York that essentially have to pull volume in order to break even. That is where the economy is headed now – volume is what makes or breaks your business. Speaking of which…

Because I was trading close to minimum size today, I had to make it up by taking as many trades as I possibly could. In an environment where the market isn’t moving all that much, that is not a good thing. With that being said, I definitely was not as productive as I wanted to be, failing to make even half of what I generally want to make to close my budget gaps, but at least I didn’t lose money. I can say that I broke even.

But it wasn’t the cash open trades that helped me break even as it was Cocoa. I thought that my day would end at the cash open but then I saw that Cocoa had some good opportunities, so I went ahead and made a couple of trades there which proved to be chocolatey (sorry, I had to).

So now it’s Friday and I just want to chill. The week has been quite busy I’ll say that. I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend with nothing on my mind except eating good food, the NBA playoffs and making constant lewd advances to the wife. It’s all a numbers game!

Movement Is Life

The New York Stock Exchange traded with a lot of velocity today. That’s exactly what I need if I’m going to keep financing my penchant for buying unnecessary things from Amazon.com.

Cash open was everything that I hoped for. Feeder Cattle was kind of so-so. I only got out with one decent trade and the only reason the PnL was so good here was because I was sized up. Same for the cash open.

Tired. I wanna sleep.
