======================
My level of frustration with missing a lot of good trades over the last few week including having internet problems for most of the week got the best of me. The jobs number on Friday - I waited for the first pullback to buy. You should wait for a 50% retracement of the bar spike. I did but waited ofr the market to start going up before entering. That was stupid. I double my stupidity by adding to the position just as it looked to set a new high for the move. I top ticked it and it rolled quickly after that. A course later I entered a great stock trade only to get out too quickly and not let the trade run. The stock trade would have cleared the earlier loss plus make up for the losses I had earlier in December. I was an idiot allowing one trade to effect the next so much.

Back to the drawing board. Happy New Year.

===========================
small gain on a couple of trades. Focused on Dow when the good action was on Crude. Story of my year. Went thru my yearly stats and made a small amount of money. If you took out the swing trades, the dividend received, and my big oops trade - I would have been strongly in the red. On the other hand, I lost a ton in June and some how got out of that hole.

As I stated before, 2011 was on insane year for family matters for me. In fact the last 30 months have been. I am looking forward to having that monkey off my back and maybe doing well for myself seeing all I have to worry about is myself.

Oh yes - happy new year to all of you who take the time to read me.
