I was reading my previous posts and realized how much I missed writing about the market and writing in general. I decided to resume blogging here instead of the new one I mentioned before because I started here and it has almost all of my thoughts since I started trading. I might be sentimental that way. But not so much.. Haha!
Anyway, I recently started trading again after a two month break. I may have missed certain run ups but I think it was a generally good idea. I haven't had a very long break. I also felt disconnected with the market so I wasn't that productive... I resumed trading just two weeks ago. I'm glad to say I have regained my "vision". Just like before, I could actually spot the "lightweight" stocks that could move the next day. I usually go through the all the charts from A to Zzz every night and I watch out for stocks that could move the next day. Like example, yesterday, I wrote down BRN and guess what, BRN is up 5.96% as of this writing. But for some reason, I can't trade it. Something's in the way and I can't seem to identify it.
I am actually writing because I'm a bit frustrated and writing actually helps me think things through. I had a glimpse of how I can be without that invisible obstacle. Yesterday, for some reason, I felt happy. And when I'm happy, I feel light. I feel free. I knew instantly that PX could move up and I bought at 14.4. I was able to sell at 15.24. At the end of the day, I was just breakeven but the point is, I started trading again. I traded what I saw. Reflexes were lightning fast. The past few weeks, I'm slow to react. Uuuuuugh... What's holding me baaaaack? I need to figure this out.
