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.
