The market sucked today but I sucked even more.
On a day where there were no large sector moves (minus those sexy coal stocks) and absolutely no volume in the market, it was all about waiting for the FOMC minutes.
"The FOMC minutes will save me... The FOMC minutes will save me..."
That's what I kept repeating to myself, like some fucked up stock trader mantra.
Naturally, whenever you "hope" for anything in the market, you get your balls crushed, like some masochistic pervert in a NYC sex club.
Anyway, enough about me...
The VO had kind of a crappy day and I offer congratulations to those who finished green. At the same time, I really hate those people right now, just for making my crappy day seem even shittier. If only OBAT had thrown down a 2g loss or something, my evening could have been saved.
I'm having a shitty day... a real shitty day. Most of my losses are in the two stocks below.
Since I don't plan on risking much more today, my $1200 loss will probably just have to stick, like shit, to my trading account. $900 of that loss is detailed below.
Very hard day to take since I've been on a real roll. I need to get better at listening to myself when the trading day appears to be crap. I had a string of losses right off the bat, nothing was working, and I should have lightened my size and taken fewer trades.
Hope your day is going better, bitchface.
NOTE: Meanwhile, on days like these, it's good to regain perspective. Here's a good list of "psychology rules" to live by when trading.
It also helps to laugh... go check out the Wall Street Fighter picture and caption today. Classic.
