It is Friday!
I managed to make some trades this week. CHFJPY, NZDUSD shorts are the winners of the week while I missed out some short term trades in AuDUSD, AUDJPY, NZDJPY. Having in the slightly ‘difficult’ situation recently, unpleasant day job, family issues, stress were building up faster than I imagined,this situation put me in some sorts of tests. I learned heaps. And fortunately, not in the hard way.
And most importantly, my overall trading survives. Having strategies in place for different time frames and market conditions, it helps to maintain profitablity consistently. My overall objective is to always maintain profitable week if possible. I asked myself ‘Why would I bother to continue trading when I am in such difficult condition?’ My simple answer: Why not? I took a day or two off to rest, however, I don’t see the need to stop working just because I am under stress. In addition, I know I am prepared to trade. All I need to do is to execute the plan. OK, let’s don’t go into the lame topic,’The imporatance of trading plan’ BS. The point is, as long as you know what you are doing, then don’t stop doing it.
I am sitting on cash now, and no trading on Friday. Spending time with my family, and looking forward to meeting some friends for a farewell dinner before they leave Australia.
As usual, if you are interested in listening to my nonsense and some fatal/shameless market calls, follow me on Twitter.
