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.
