Goodbye Summer 2018

This summer was over too quickly but it was a good one. Hope yours was the same.

What's been happening

My personal status report since this last one.

  • Forgot to meditate, DAMN IT!
  • Weight crept up to 200lbs, tis ok
  • Sold USDTRY for a small lost
  • Went short EURSUD, still holding. In the BIG RED but holding.
  • Neice from Hong Kong is here, having a good time
  • Accepted an offer from a Startup, looking forward to getting back into it.
  • Severely sprained my left big toe during Karate class
  • Need to go more to the Dojo, kind slacking off
  • Reviewed some Python courses and streamlined some Twitter processes
  • Finished reading Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain (see below)

I have to say, the late Anthony Bourdain was an entertaining writer. I enjoyed his book 'Kitchen Confidential' and I've been inspired to cook more and try new things. Raw, funny, and reliable, it's 5/5 stars for me.

Next on the reading list is '4 Hour Work Week' by Tim Ferris.

I'm making it a point to read and write more again. I think I'm going to leave my NMT site alone as just a Machine Learning | Data Science resource and spend more time over here.

MSFT keeps on going higher

Now this is a wonderful chart. It's a weekly chart of MSFT and I like it. Been long this company since the 80's or so. I love it MSFT for it's cloud offering Azure. If you're a Data Scientist or a Data Analyst, you're either on Azure of AWS, and let's face it...AWS is hard.

MSFT Stock

Staying long till the cows come home.

First 'Real' EURUSD trade

I took my first 'real' FOREX trade in ages last week. I sold short 1000 units of EURUSD. I'm betting on the USD getting stronger against the EURO.

While those 1000 units cost me like $100 with 10:1 leverage, and my account is only $125, I ended up dialing up the risk here. Stupid. I also forgot that reading Forex is purely a price action play because all the indicators you add to it lag and are really just derivatives of price action. I should brush up on my candlestick reading. Stupid.

Went long in the lower wick of that doji there. Another mistake I made, I knew it was going to bounce back, should've waited for that to get short. Stupid.

Still, it's better to trade with real money. Helps you deal with the emotions better and faster.

Not bad, three stupids for this trade.
