Aspiration is the enemy of man. It keeps us satiated to feed off of dreams and also from awakening to the harsh cold realities of the truth. When in a dream-like trance, I envision all sorts of trades going right for me — at the mast of a large ship firing grape into a town of devils. In this dream I alone return from the battle victorious, everyone else completely slewed.
In the real world, I keep thinking the market is going to go up and so the way my mind works, simple enough, I hold onto the dream, in this case it was LABU and CWEB and WCLD. See I sold all of my longs at the open bell like a good boy should. But then I also sold my hedge and then I was forced to reapply a hedge via DRIP and then forced to keep forcing myself to adhere to the markets and now I am down 1.05%.
See how that works?
The NASDAQ IS THROUGH THE FUCKING FLOOR BOARDS, led lower by SAAS, as silicon valleys favorites get gassed and exterminated. I want to believe there will be a turn higher — because it fits my world view.
But look at me now, -1.37% for the month, but angry and possibly irrational enough to turn it around.
