I went to The Tim Sykes Trading Summit in Miami this week. I got my motivation back. I had really lost it this year when my husband fell sick and then passed in July. I actually made 3 of the goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year. 1) Sized up my contract size 2) Attended the conference 3) Changed my work schedule to Graveyard shift so I can trade more. I have issues sometimes trading at market open, as I am still at work. But I can make swing trades easily at power hour EOD. I've been working on a Credit Spread strategy so I don't have to worry about closing the trades I make. I can't make any home runs doing this, but as Tim says, singles add up. I will probably write a blog this weekend which will go over my goals in more detail. I finished uploading all of my trades as well. I had let my journal go for a LONG time!
