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.
Will you work for a Denarius? - In other words "a day's wage". I am an individual trader that has 25 years of both good and bad trading who decided to take up Day Trading in hopes of earning "a day's wage" and leave the rat race forever.
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.
