Well, it seems that while I was slumbering away this morning … the Q’s decided to rip higher along with the S&P 500 Index. Yes, we’re still long the Q’s from months back. That particular process is up over 16% this year and is part of the ‘major indices’ position process we mentioned yesterday.
“Back up for a moment. Slumbering away Dan?“
Yeah .. well … there are things about being a self-directed retail trader that no one really ever tells you. For instance …
Your sleep schedule will more than likely be completely screwed up. I feel asleep yesterday around 6:50 PM EST. I woke up at 9:15 PM. I was then awake until the London Open at 3:00 AM EST. Feel asleep around 4. Woke up around 10:30 for 15 minutes. And then just woke up about 20 minutes ago. And I am by no means alone in this. Most other at-home traders I talk with have such screwy sleep patterns. It’s pretty ‘across-the-board’ in the profession. At first, it seems pretty glamorous; as if you’re leading the life of a rock-star. But you need to keep a handle on it, somehow; because if you’re not careful it will completely screw with your ability to function and your health.
Just one of the many, many things … that no one tells you about becoming a successful, consistently profitable trader.
Anyways … yes … still long the Q’s. Still rocketing higher.
Don’t forget that the ‘Reconstructed Sharpe Report‘ is now only $15.00 per month, from now, into perpetuity. At the same time, the ‘Short-Term Trading Course’ has a promotion that is ongoing for those interested …
