I think I have recently found myself again. Years have passed. I think keeping a journal was a big part of it.

I sat here tonight, nearly in the dark, at least as far as seeing the keyboard goes. And felt something I don't remember having felt before. Finding beauty in uncertainty? Choosing not knowing? Neither of those is correct in describing it.

What I can maybe describe, is that tonight is no different than any other as I look at the many charts on my monitors, I don't see anything that has me preferring any direction, but

No, I don't have a description tonight. I almost erased this.

Thinking about personalized plates, something about taking pride in being a trader. That is not something I would normally do, but in this case it has a purpose.

Most states are what, six or seven letters? So maybe

IMA TRDR

DAY TRDR

SCALPER

etc

My one and only personalized plate was when I was 16 or 17 for my 91 GT which I heavily modded. I still have the plate somewhere, it reads "BAD 5.0".

Have fun

Mike

2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.

When I got my first corvette, a friend wanted me to get custom plates

"ONLY 23"

EDIT: Btw, I didn't do it. It was too much, even for 23-yo me

I had an '85, age 17. Jumped it over the train tracks on 3rd ave, and lived to tell. Ripped out the rear end doing something crazy. Great car.

This is one of those things that is fun to think about but is ALWAYS tacky in practice, and in short order something with pride and sentimental value could just end up a joke and a painful reminder. And customized plates are only a step up from bumper stickers (the morons billboard).
