Have been off sick for several days now, and today is the 3rd consecutive trading session that I missed. I also have no internet connection at home (temporarily), so truly, I can’t do any FX work – though I have been thinking about my trading a bit during these days.
I had a great Skype catch-up with my trading coach on Thursday – I will shortly share some of the points that we discussed during the skype. As usual, it was quite a helpful.
Jack Bauer – federal agent
During my days off I spent hours and hours watching two and a bit seasons of ’24’ – amazing stuff. I was trying to draw some parallels between Jack Bauer (the main character who is a federal anti-terrorist agent) and my trading journey. Jack has sacrificed a lot of his life for the sake of his job, and he has become extremely good at what he does. I guess I am sacrificing a lot too for the work I have pursued in trading and in the “entertainment” industry. I am trying to make the FX trading the core, the key area, of my life, and to work very hard (and very smart) at it.
The positive thing is that I am still here. Still working on trading full-time. I am well-funded. I am working hard. I am loving what I do. Because of all these things, the odds are in my favor. I am still chasing the gold at the end of the rainbow. I will get there. Anyways, those are just some random thoughts going through my head. I can’t stop somehow bringing everything back into the trading area – even if it is watching ’24’.
