Trades for 11-29-10

I shouldn’t have traded today and I knew it before hand. Been stressed out lately, my habits (sleep, workout, etc.) have been all jacked up over the past week and ½, and I was coming off a week long break. It’s only money though, and it’s about the long term numbers/habits.

Trades for 11-18-10, and weekly total

My total for the week is: +2.94%

I’ve been busy the past few days cleaning the house and getting back in a “groove” with my daily habits and workouts. I will also have to work my weekend job for an extra day (Monday) so with that and the holiday I doubt I will have any trades this thanksgiving week.

Trades for 11-16-10

I finally caught up with my blog postings today. Sorry for leaving you hanging there for a few days, but I had a lot going on including going to 2 different shops to get my SUV fixed and my weekend job.

Trades for 11-10-10

I had a couple of trades this morning, both gainers. Was a very long day getting my SUV fixed, and after all was said and done it still isn’t fully fixed. I’m taking it to a different shop on Monday because the original shop I used just lost a customer (long story that I don’t feel like getting into right now).

Trades for 11-9-10

So I only got a couple of trades in today. This week is going to be a little out of the norm for me because I have to get my car fixed tomorrow. I will more then likely still trade tomorrow during London hours, but after that I’ll be stuck at the repair shop.

Only note I have is for my trade in gold, I trailed my stop too tight.

Trades for 11-4-10, weekly total, and artwork

Wound up only trading GBP/USD and EUR/USD. Results were good, and I don’t expect to be trading tomorrow.

My total for the week is: +1.85%

I’ve also gotten into digital art lately. It helps to pass the time while you’re waiting on a trade and you’re sick of looking at economic news. My 1st piece I’ve titled “Time is watching you” and was a “quickie” for the most part. I plan on doing better pieces (I’m working on another one now), but you can see all of my artwork and photography on deviantART by Clicking Here.

Trades for 11-3-10

Wasn’t a good day for me to be trading. Fed days are always hard until the release comes out. My 1st trade was off the ISM/factory orders news release, and I don’t normally trade news. I also missed out on some very nice moves in gold. Overall it wasn't a good day for me, but lets see what tomorrow brings.

Global economies, and the currency war

Some headlines I found interesting and/or useful:

Dollar could loose more if QE is onging
Aussies raise rate
The currency war

Reading through the articles I’m beginning to see where the Fed’s moves are to force China’s hand in allowing their currency to rise. However I think they are up to something more sinister.
