Flooring like a trader

I laid more bamboo flooring last night. I like to put my headphones in, play some tunes, and just crank. Before I know it, it’s 11:00pm and I’ve got another room done. I started just laying one row at a time, running to the garage to make the cuts, put them in place, and picking boards for the next row. Then I was picking out multiple boards at a time, laying them out, cutting, and laying two rows simultaneously. Just like anything, it’s about finding a rhythm, looking for small efficiencies, and improving along the way.

I’ve been in a pretty good rhythm with my trading lately. I’ll share more stats at the end of the month, but it’s been a good one already. I’m hoping it only gets better.

No regret on Netflix

As mentioned yesterday, I closed my $NFLX longs for a slight lose. Had I held on through today I’d have made a slight profit. But I don’t regret the decision I made.

I took the margin I was using on that trade and used it to sell EURUSD at about 1.1825. On balance, that was a very good decision.

EURUSD is thinking through its next move

I haven’t done anything with my EURUSD position. I remain heavily short (heavy for me at least). The daily chart is looking precariously, and it’s almost certain we close back below the 50-day SMA:

Is a retest of 1.1700 in order? I sure hope so! Unfortunately tomorrow is Friday, but I get the feeling we might still see some action anyway. Today was far too tame after yesterday’s excitement.

A new angel investment

I dabble in angel investing and consider it to be a great swing trade. As you likely know I’m a big believer in swing trading. And I love putting my money in trades/investments that lock it up for an extended amount of time. It keeps me from meddling with it.

It’s a tech company focused on the accounts payable sector. That’s really all I can say. I now have 17 deals I’ve participated in and one follow on since April, 2016. So I’m still relatively new to the angel investing scene. Across those 18 investments I’ve put about $42,000 to work. It will be interesting to see how it all pans out. But if they all go to zero, it’s not going to hurt me financially.

Let’s hope we see more action in the FX markets today. The bounce back in equities wasn’t really surprising given the BTFD mantra is going strong still.

Geppy Forex

I began trading forex in 2005. It took me seven years to figure out how to be consistently profitable. I blog in an effort to hopefully help other aspiring traders become successful much sooner than I did.
