Well, here we are, the last trading day before Christmas, and if you have designs about trading today you need serious psychological help; to say nothing is going on is an insult to “nothing going on”. I don’t even know why anything is open today anyway; there isn’t a commercial trading desk in the world that has anybody there besides new MBA grads and interns. Every large trader [and small ones as well] have packed it in, and the only thing anybody wants to see from the trading world is the clock showing its time to leave.
So, not only is it pre-Christmas Eve, it’s Friday as well, and I have a sneaking hunch there aren’t many people that give a rat’s donkey about anything trading related; everybody is gonna be watching the never ending holiday telethon of “The Christmas Story” on TBS/TNT. However, most guys still have Holiday shopping to do, and so I realize you are gonna be busy today finding special gifts for loved ones, and there just isn’t time for trading; as for me … well … I got all my shopping done weeks ago when I caught that special at WalMart on vacuum cleaner bags for the Mrs. … oh, won’t she be thrilled!
I checked under the tree this morning, and all I see are wrapped presents for the dog … you’d think he owns the place or something. How many assorted toys, nurf balls, and bags of treats does he need? Meanwhile, the only gifts I get are through the mail and say “amount due”; ahhh, the joys of being an adult male.
Still, it’s one of my favorite times of year; mostly because I get to look at the Weather Channel and see most of you in the U.S. freezing to death while I “catch a chill” here in Paradise when the thermometer drops below 78°; “now, now … it’s Christmas … no Paradise envy”. Of course, if you’re sick of the weather, the traffic, the “Pudding Business”, and in general the lovely state your living in, the real Christmas present you should be giving yourself and family would be making more money than they could ever spend down here somewhere in the Caribbean soaking up warm temps with nary a worry. For the vast majority of you, still plenty of time to make it happen, and “escape to success”!
Until next Monday mi amigos, I am wishing all of my readers/clients the most very MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Have a great Christmas everybody!
