My MTD gains have been reduced to just +30%, following a week of tumult — which fleeced me for 325bps. I cannot say for sure what was the prime mover in my disconnection from the Matrix, but I will insist upon success next week and for the foreseeable future, in order to cleanse myself from this feeling of fail.
The spectacle of having to endure losses is something I am not accustomed to in recent days — but know full well the manifestations of momentum and when one loses his initiative in markets.
Intra day, I weighted into more traditional names focused on inflation and trade with China. I have numerous speculative positions on, one of which is a 15% weight. My intent is to be reckless because failure is often met with desperation. I know how this story ends, since I have played it out innumerable times. But in the midst of the heated moment, it always feeeeeeels different.Comments »
