Saturday morning. Cafe 1001. 3-day trading suspension has passed. Energy levels are on the up (well, a little bit). 4 training sessions the past four days – rest day today. Progressed well with EMA testing on DAX-2014 data in ForexTester2 software (1M data supplied by FXCM). Up 11R over 22 trades between Jan1-Mar22. Sitting here after breakfast and double macchiatio. Met a nice girl here yesterday who is interested in trading – tried to give her some pointers. It is truly amazing how hard of a journey it is – but then so is every business endeavour, no? Played more raquetball with my millionaire buddies – they are always an inspiration (most likely without them knowing it). Trying to come up with a real motivational context for me to push through until my deadline in 12 months’ time. Something that will carry me for the “Endspurt” (there ain’t really a good English word for this German one). Also mulling over my pencil-written scrap notes, and an ever-evolving notepad file. It’s just a raft of ideas that I keep adding to, and then realise that I do implement and take action over, without consciously knowing it. How do people in the creative industries – say painters, writers, sculpturists, graffiti artists – deal with having constant flows of ideas and always having the feeling of being behind? Surely I am not a very creative person – I just happen to have lots of thoughts – most of which aren’t really my own – they are just things I read in places. Planning to work most of the weekend. Carry on with that trading. This blog post was deliberately written as to be hard to read, using a single paragraph structure. Well done if you managed to read it to this point. You have determination.
