Wed. 11/09

12:45pm CST - Post-election depression that the USA actually elected Trump or realization that I am unable to execute whatever "edge" I thought I had?  Either way, need a break.

Fri. 10/28

2:40pm CDT - Really?  The increased volatility after FBI announced it will reopen Hillary email probe reeked some havoc on my system and discipline.  Mostly followed plan but could have all been avoided if I had the balls to take some better exits in the morning.  Some stuff to ponder before Monday.  Net +$54 on the week.  Go Cubs!

1:55pm CDT - Some wild swings early on for no apparent reason made for an "opposite" day, a day where you would have done well to take the opposite position of every trade you took!  Or reversed at every stop out would have been good too.  More research needed...
