No trades yesterday as I went to Phoenix early in the day to get steroid injections in my back at specialist there. They hurt like hell for about 2 seconds and then they are magic shots. Good for about 4-6 months. Anyway, 10 total hours over and back.
Today two trades on NQ both longs. Both stopped to the tick before the reversal to my intended target zones. Then out the door to attend to a couple of family items and now back to the machine to grind out the lost hours from yesterday on the day job.
My daughters 15th birthday is tomorrow so lots going on there today and tomorrow so a busy weekend ahead. She starts school Thursday next week and we still have a couple of things to do to get ready for that so will have a few hours next week devoted to her and her school.
On a side note, I did 8 of the 10 hours yesterday in silence just thinking, zoning out and otherwise enjoying a very prolonged time away from the deluge of noise that invades our every waking minute. What an incredible thing it was. It's been a long time since I did anything like that and I might do it again in a month or so.
One of the side benefits of quiet time is your subconscious has time to work with out more input and the last two hours a business idea popped into my head and I thought about that from 4:30 when I was on the road until midnight when I finally was able to clear my mind from the idea long enough to fall asleep. Its unrelated to trading which is good and its about something I have had a life long passion about. More later if and when I decide to get it off the ground which won't be until after this project is over. It will require a number of hours thinking and planning through some fairly detail items but once done will involve a physical product as well as intellectual property. Who knows where things like this lead.
Cheers every one, have a great weekend.
glad to read about the PnL for your CL trade - those days are what make trading such a rewarding pursuit. as for quiet time, i've been researching this more and more and I'd really like to incorporate it into my practice & pregame reps. i think it might just be the thing I need. HBD to your daughter and enjoy the weekend - you certainly earned it!ReplyDelete
I'm starting to think daily quiet time if you can get it might hold a key to lots of things in your life. Combine it with some guided meditations, vivid thinking about the results you want and the how someway becomes clear in your mind.ReplyDelete
