Thinking positive

So we had:
Estimate FEa = 1321.50 @8:37
Actual FEa = 1320 @8:33

Dif only 1.5pts and 4 minutes!

So we had:
Estimate "Upto 1333.25"
Actual upto 1328.50 @ 9:30


So we had:
Estimate Low=1314.75
Actual low = 1316.25 @ 10:40

- day not done yet could see 1314.75 or 1313.50..

Notes:
This week has been a struggle. Lost time and sleep with the infected finger. It's much better now.

I feel OK with the CL exercise. We're above $50K. Several days were pretty terrible trading, however I am getting better at trusting myself. The big learning lesson there is to do up the analysis pick your price and wait for it. Don't lose confidence in the analysis and trade early. If it doesn't unfold today it will in the o/n session or tomorrow.

I'm surprised people don't notice - but I guess they will when it goes above a million dollars.

Then the moaners will start going - "yes but it wouldn't have happened with real money"- even though the trades are posted in advance and anyone with $20 could just follow along. "Yes but you were over-leveraged" -even though I show I'm well within margin.

They'll quote some rule like 2% per trade which is fine if you are just mucking about with some indicators doing the same old thing you've done for the last ten years with no equity growth and not having any consistent edge. They can't read charts and we all know "technical analysis doesn't work". Of course they mean chart reading and not indicators which they use - which are also technical analysis.

(BTW Anything based on time and price data is technical analysis - as apposed to "funnymental" analysis based on earnings, revenue economic data etc.)

It will be interesting to see. So this is typed and time stamped

peace, love and joy to you

In my apt building there is a sexy girl, who I recognize by the sound of her boots on the pavement.
I heard the sound, and when out to my balcony to check (her out).

To my surprise it wasn't her but another young lady, with beautiful flowing hair.
I waited for her to turn around.

Surprise, surprise the girl who lives at the end of the hall!

"Nice hair!" - I called out gauchely.

She turned around and laughed! with a big smile! Gotta love the big smile!

what has this to do with trading? ... SFA. but...

It is
spring.

And young men's
thoughts,
turn to beautiful maidens,
with laughing eyes,
smiling lips,
and inviting curves.
