I do not know how this is going to effect my trading or my blogging but my main (and older) trading crashed last night. I think the Mother broad or memory went. It was time to replace it but I was not ready for this. I had been doing backups from time to time but with my daughters events this summer, I had not done one for 3 months. I also missed an important directory with trading in it. What a pain in the ass!!!!!
T was the Big mouth stock of the day. I did not play it. I played the decline near the end of day but screwed it up by placing my stop too close. - The numbers: Stocks: gross +30 net +25 shares 1000 Stock Futures: none Forex: none
I nearly cried today. This was the first time since 7/6/2009 I had my full battle station up and running when the market open. It has been a long time. I am still putting the pieces of my life back together and trying to get focused on the markets again. - I had to first find my desk under two months of mail and newspapers and just shit. I spent the last week begining to update my stats. I still have a ton to go but I am slowly making process. - Guess what? - I made a trade today. I shorted the big mouth stock above. The details are on the chart. I still do not know how much or when I will trade but it is a start. I still have a ton of real work to catch up on. - It is just great to be back even if it is in a limited way. I hope I will have enough time to post on a regular basis. - The Numbers: Stocks: gross +119 nets +117 shares 400. Stock Futures: none Forex: none
During my daughter 60 days of crisis, I was with her for part of or all of 34 of those days. There were 3 hospitals, one rehab place and 8 doctors involved. During my travels for her, I spent time in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia and Maryland. I stayed in 8 different motel/hotels. I drove over 6500 miles, used over 8000 cell minutes and spent over $4500 on gas, food, housing, clothing and other things. - It has been a trip. - My daughter looks like she is going to come out whole in all of this. I think this event will straighten her life out too and even her boyfriend. Through this whole event she and I have done a great job of removing the mental walls between us and starting our relationship a new. I have never felt this close to her before. She is truly a special person in my eyes. I have also got the chance to be part of her life. I have met her boyfriend, many of her friends and co-workers. I have been able to see how many people care so deeply for her. I am very impressed. Her boyfriend is neat too. The first one I ever really liked. - What am I going to do now?? A course - go to the beach for the next 3 days and relax with the wife.
My daughter got her Trachea fixed and hopefully will be going back home on Friday. It has been a long journey and I hope it is done. I do not know when I will start trading again. I feel my life is a mess right now.
This blog is only a dumping of my mind. I will at times make suggestions on how to make money. If you follow them, you are on your own. With blogs - you get what you pay for and if you follow my suggestions - I will consider you crazier than I am.
