Accountability post 08/18/2020-09/20/2020 I took a little time off this month. My parents finally moved here to Vegas where I can help take care of my mom. She is fighting stage 4 cancer. To add insult to injury, I am one of 18,000 employees that were permanently laid off on August 31, 2020 from MGM Resorts International. I worked for this company for 23 years, and the past few weeks I have suffered from major feelings of identity loss. My trading has suffered a little. I have had a losing streak, but I have not chased any losses. I have tried to limit my trading this month instead, so that I can help my mind recover from this blow. I am glad that I have been able to stay green overall, even though I am at a $550 loss for this month. I am working on getting my head back into the game, so writing this accountability post is a start. I have managed to view all of the live webinars and emailed videos for the last month. I have finished the 30 Day Bootcamp. I finished the DVD's, "Tim Fundamentals Part Deux" and "Penntstocking Framework" I have finished all of the DVD's except "How to Read SEC Filings", which I only have one disk left to watch. I am still reading "How Yoga Works" by Geshe Michael Roach. I am halfway done with it. I am halfway done with the Taxes for Traders course with Tracy Coenen. I have been watching the video course and reading the book. I am still listening to "Market Wizards," but my gym going has been spotty lately. I overworked my lower back muscle moving boxes, so I'm afraid I over trained a bit. I took a week off from lifting to heal.

How did you get to the Tracy Coenen course? I have emailed gone to the website with different browsers and can not ever get a response or anything from there. I imagine getting a local accountant would be a way to go too, but what do you think of that course?

@gil_fl It is a good course. It covers a lot. She talks about futures and options too. Long term investments as well. When I signed up for the challenge, they sent an email from Wordpress with a link to reset my password. I just clicked on the link and made a new password and I have been able to access it ever since. I will help you tomorrow. Maybe we can figure it out for you.

@gil_fl I use it for scanning, but I haven't had too many issues with ToS today. I couldn't get my charts to load mid-day, that's it. I have heard a lot of people were having issues too. I am not sure I will trade tomorrow, all I have been trading lately turn out to be duds! My daughter has a virtual orientation for school tomorrow morning, so my schedule is not going to be cooperative. I just realized I thought today was Wednesday! Need to change the watchlist title to Wednesday instead of

Hi friend! I hope you are gearing up for a good weekend. I do not know where this week went, or maybe it is just my brain that is missing in action. If you find it tell it to come back please

@gil_fl I don't know where this week went either! I had to get my daughter ready for online school which starts next week, so I couldn't trade the last couple days. I'm ready for a relaxing weekend!

Accountability post 08/05/2020-08/18/2020 I watched all of the live webinars and emailed video lessons for the past two weeks. I finished reading "The Complete Turtle Trader" by Michael Covel. I am still reading "How Yoga Works" by Geshe Michael Roach. I am dedicating myself to finishing this book before I start any others. I am still listening for the second time to the audio book, "Market Wizards" by Jack Schwager while I go to the gym and when I run in the mornings. I watched "Options Trading for Beginners" and "How to Buy Options with Less Decay" on projectoption's YouTube channel. I am halfway through the new Tim Sykes and Matthew Monaco "30 Day Boot Camp." I finished 3 of the four disks in the DVD, "How to Read SEC Filings." I loved the first two disks when Michael Goode was teaching. I am having a really hard time focusing on the last two disks when Tim is teaching. Probably because Tim has a hard time focusing on teaching it, lol. Not sure I am going to be motivated to finish this one. I am leaning more toward technical trading rather than fundamental trading. I just want to know the basics for fundamentals. Poring through SEC filings will probably not be something I will do a lot for research. I finished the DVD, "Trader's Checklist, Part Deux." I am currently watching the DVD, "Tim Fundamentals Part Deux." I have been watching the markets every day, and I trade when I see something I am comfortable with, or if I get an alert from Mark Croock for an options play. I am trying to learn morning panic dip buys. I have been too scared to trade them because they move so fast. I have mainly been watching those, but not trading them. I am waiting until I feel ready. I am happy with my studying this week even though I had another busy two weeks. I had my other cataract removed, and I spent part of one weekend at my parents' new apartment getting it ready for them to move in at the beginning of September. I still got a decent amount of stuff done.

@gil_fl Thank you for being so supportive! I was thinking of you when I was cracking jokes with the nurses, lol. I think that having a younger person in there was a nice change for them, haha!

Thanks for sharing. I bet your trading profits will eventually eclipse your past job earnings. Just remember to cut losses quickly.
