The New York Stock Exchange was slow today. It’s a given being that we had the FOMC business today. I wasn’t expecting much so I didn’t size up.
No assets were traded today. It was just cash open business and that was that. Although, I will say that I was tempted to trade the Dow futures at 2pm.
Nothing much to write about today. It’s just another day from being done in the market. But the feeling is obviously heightened by the fact that this will be one of the last times I post here. I always say this and I will never not say it – trading is one of the worst careers a person can ever pursue. The failure rate here is so high and without any type of safety net, your life could be permanently altered right before your eyes. Heck, even if you have a safety net your life will probably take a low path that you would have never expected.
I’m not discouraging people from trading by any means, I’m just saying that it should be recognized for what it is: a false roadmap to financial success. Money is a byproduct of doing important things well. I’m too tired to expound on this lol. You’ll just have to trust me.
