1) 1% on my trading
2) 700 Kcals at the gym with 4500m on the rower
3) <95 on the golf course this afternoon.
Part 1 has been achieved with which turned out to be quite an easy trade on GBPUSD as with hindsight it trickled down nicely all morning. I can’t say that I have got to the point where I am totally relaxed during the trades I take though. During the hour-long trade (which is long for me), each market breath forced me into having to make decisions where decisions didn’t need to be made. As long as I have my price trading below my fastest ema I can easily ignore the intra-move cycles. Then there is the rise up to my 2nd ema which then gives me a few nerves as I wait for the next cycle down to take out the previous low…..with GBPUSD this morning this was pretty much the case from 09:00 onwards.
I am also glad I sold all my equities 2 weeks ago judging by the stock market reaction yesterday and today. I love the way the media are blaming this on Greece……durrrrr so why was the DOW and NASDAQ down yesterday too ? “It’s the Price that makes the news not the news that makes the price”. I guess these wags at the papers/tv have to show that they know why things are happening to justify their salaries.
Picture of the trade is below :
Right now off the gym and down to the driving range to practice!
I might even have to wear a hat and some shorts today – bring on the summer !
