Horribly Rancid Tape — The Gods Must Assist Me in the Coming Days

I veered off the reservation to the tune of -1.2%. It wasn’t a catastrophic day and my MTD losses are just 2%, an easy number to fix. But I am stuck and I cannot escape and I am mad that I keep running on this hamster wheel to nowhere. Sure, I am +200% YTD — but I haven’t done any big numbers in months. I suppose the fact I am not blowing up is always a consolation — but go fuck yourself.

“The Fly” is only interested in winning, all the time, and when he’s not; well, things get dicey. I do not like to see others doing well. I am not jealous over your gains — but I hate you for them. Things of course do have a way of working out for me. The process is sometimes torturous and I’ve had innumerable and severe set backs over the course of my trading career (book plug) — but I guess this is my crucible — the pangs of doing something you love and having to endure periods of mediocrity.

I closed the session 25% cash, headlong into a Friday that is sure to be interesting. I will also be departing for Boston on Monday for a week, overseeing my daughter off to college.

    Everyone feeling bad about Afghanistan? …or just kinda numb?
    We tolerated it!!!! And it is still going on. Today US bombs are dropping on Syria and elsewhere – creating more hate and more anti-US terrorists.
