Diary of a Trader 6.19 — The Curse Continues
After about a week of sitting on the sideline due to a high volume of fundamental events, I finally got triggered in a trade today. Unfortunately, it was on the GBPUSD and well…if you’ve followed my content this year then you know that that pair & I haven’t been on the best of terms ins 2018 (Watch the endthis video if you’re out of the loop).
Overall the markets did absolutely nothing today, which doesn’t come as much of a surprise given how we have everyone who is everyone speaking at the Central Bank Forum on Central Banking tomorrow in Portugal. Can we just pause for a minute & think about what a clever name that is…
To make matters worse, as I reviewed my trading day, which happened to be the key topic of today’s Live Room session, I noticed that price did end up falling to my projected level, unfortunately I was stopped out beforehand.
Unlike last year it looks as if this may be a very slow Summer of trading for me, so I’m starting to think about what I want to work on that’s trading related seeing how I’ll likely have a few extra hours that can be filled each day. Part of me just wants to relax and chill, as there’s only about 6 weeks left until my busy season kicks off again. Another part wants to work on some projects that I’ve been pushing back for the past 2–3 years.
I’ve started talking to our programmer about doing the coding for one of the strategies that I’ve been thinking about bringing back and well, if he can get that code up and running quickly that would cut hours off the process. But who knows, I’ll make those decisions at some point as of now, I’m just going to continue to enjoy our World Cup action.
