Keep in mind markets are still open, all be it the “holiday season”.
We don’t generally expect to see fireworks during the coming week, or the following week for that matter but…….it doesn’t hurt to stay tuned as these days – you never really know.
To “remain vigilant” is a base requirement for shorter term traders, as periods of low volume often generate wider swings in price, and can easily “whipsaw the weak” ( if you know what I mean ). With fewer trades being placed, any “reasonably large trade” can have a much larger effect on price so…..it makes sense to keep an eye on things.
We’ve got 2013 winding down – wow. 2013 – over and done with yes!
On a personal level I can say with certainty – I won’t miss it.
Since the “dawn of the Internet” I’ve found solace in ( and perhaps coined ) an analogy that more or less describes/outlines/ defines the way I’ve lived my entire life.
“I don’t have a back button”.
Like a web browser, or perhaps an “edit function” in one of the programs we all use daily (there for you at the push of a button). A simple click to erase your mistakes……a wonderful opportunity to just……”go back”.
I don’t believe in that.
I’ve made mistakes sure…..big ones….huge ones, no…”massive ones” but………I don’t really look at them as “mistakes”. I dont’ look back – I don’t look back for a second no…I move forward. I move towards the future.
I “am” the future as……if you don’t believe in yourself then – what’s the f#%king point?
We all make decisions, that in turn lead to more decisions, and so on, and so on……..
How could we be expected to get “every single one” right?
Go ahead and make mistakes. Learn from them….and move on.
Last time I looked…I think they call it “life” no?
Have fun……and make a point of it.

I’ve been following your progress as well…and apologize as…..its hard to answer each and every question – every single time.
I so appreciate your readership – and hope you’ve progressed with your trading.

Hey Kong …
