I decided recently that I was going to try something new. I wanted to train for a triathlon so I joined a group of guys already training. My stock trading skills were eroding and it was time to focus on the root of the problem. DISCIPLINE! What better way to brush up on my discipline than to have a regimen with a group of individuals who head out every morning at 5:20 to bike, run or swim. Little did I know that if you’re out of shape, training for a triathlon can be very taxing. Everything was moving along rather smoothly until I encountered our swimming instructor . He had dark red nail polish on his toes and I had a very difficult time looking, even more, listening to any thing he had to say. What was the reason behind this? My first thought was that he was a swimming instructor by day and by night a transvestite. I guess what ever floats ur boat right?
Anyway what I’ve come to realize in the last week is that since starting training I am rejuvenated mentally until I get into work. What I really have to do is keep the momentum and energy going into the trading day which will give me the discipline that I’ve been looking for. As of lately, these markets have been rather volatile, especially in the commodities markets so without a set plan, you will get chopped up . My advice to you all is stay small, be cautious and most of all, watch out for the guy with the funky nail polish on his toes.
