BREAKFAST KILLS

Not to make excuses or anything, but I did make a really great French omelette, not color but yellow through and through. I come back to the desk, 10 minutes into trading, and behold a harrowing decline in NIO — which is now halted due to retardation.

The stock had been up 15% pre-market, now fucked.

I’ll end up taking an L on this and also walk away with a lesson, which is — NEVER make yourself breakfast at the market open while holding volatile piece of shit Chinese burritos.

      That’s the opposite of good nutritional advice.

        Not at all, look into it. You’ll burn more fat. The frequent small meal fad is actually long term detrimental.

          Well, breaking fast eventually has to happen… but the longer you wait to stop the natural fat burning process that occurs while us humans sleep or introduce new substances other than water, is pretty dope.

            Everyone has to learn their own body though. If I IF for too long after a heavy session in the am, I will feel loopy as shit

    You made a great Looking omelette, however. Probably the most expensive you will ever eat.

    Shortly after 9:30 AM I have stepped out for a quick bagel, cup of coffee, or taken a bathroom break, which turned out to be costly.

    Can’t do much if the CEO calls at 9:30 but otherwise I am learning to be present and attentive at the open and close.
