Time flies

I've been having fun these last two and half months. Trading off and on, mostly off though as my day starts early and ends late most of the time. In general I have about 30-45 minutes to legitimate trading time in the morning which in all honesty, isn't really enough although I have gotten lucky a few times first thing in the morning.

Lately I've been toying with the idea of switching to forex swing trading. Smaller positions, hold a hell of a lot longer using daily and weekly charts, adding to the winners as they progress and trading CL in the morning only when a perfect set up happens which maybe once a week in my allotted trading hours and try to do that trade with near max size assuming risk allows.

I have a few days off at the end of the month and I will turn my attention to the forex thing and really consider it then.

On a side note about the "real" job, I am in the process of remaking an entire mortgage division in my image. I have great staff thats had no leadership in the last 3-4 years and they are excited to have someone with actual mortgage leadership skills at the helm and I am excited to be there with them. I have having fun at work which is more than most people can say!

Anyways, I will be back in a month or so with an update about forex and maybe some ideas about trading that instrument.
