Monday Notes - Early Week Thoughts
Tonight's video touches on why I'm not pleased with a 9-for-10 day, why this journal discusses life as much as it does trading, plans for an upcoming "Vaio-less" personal retreat, an update on the Jellie Webinar ADA tally (closing in on $16K), and my perspectives on not replenishing trading accounts following a draw.
And on the heels of this weekend's inspirational piece on overcoming adversity, I revisit a very kind gesture from Larry Connors of Street Smarts and TradingMarkets some eight years ago (see photo montage to right; click to enlarge).
For trading will always remain a business of people.
