Gary,
Nice to see you are still around. I have read your complete journal a few times. You capture more than what it is like to be a trader in my opinion. After reading your journal I feel like I have had the chance to spend time with somebody with greater insight than I will ever have, and with a humbleness I will never have. thanks for creating such an authentic journal and sharing it so freely.

the meanest bean of all,
MeanBean

Fuck... and I say that with sincerity.

Yours is not a name I have seen before, or if I have do not remember. But if all I did was read this, your experience of my prior thoughts, or... if only you and I existed at this moment..

and to us, in this moment, only we do...


Forget having to even have a point.

We trade because trading exists. We trade, because it is life. We trade, with the goal of making some fucking money.

And money is out there, all around, moving, breathing...

So what? Relax.

Doing excellent, thanks. I opened NT for the first time just this week since whenever I logged off here.

Trading is so consuming at times, and in that space, when certain things are brought into focus over others, it is hard to deal with certain issues. And, it also keeps the intensity turned up on other issues. I went thorough a lot of "stuff" that I could not have done with charts in front of my face.

Now I am going to do a long march through the whole thing.
