Stop Limit is My Friend

I love day trading! I am that last minute person that loves the thrill.

I have finally gotten to the point where I can see the candlestick patterns and I guess there is some level of intuition about the direction of the trade.  I can see the trade will be good in the direction chosen.  I find I hesitate getting in.  As in driving, hesitation can be deadly.  Once I am in the trade…. well getting out is another emotional swing.

Some where in my brain is this thought that “its just retracement” but often,  it really is a new direction. and I should have been out.

I am using TastyWorks for my live trades these days along with the OptionsHouse platform on Etrade.  I am still learning the TastyWorks desktop platform so most of my research is done on the OptionsHouse platform.  I love the low commission and fees, but there are just too many buttons to press to get into and out of day trades fast.

On OptionsHouse I can use OCO orders but TastyWorks does not have these.  It does however have a Stop Limit order that is different than on other platforms.  I can select my stop trigger and set a limit order for my stop exit!  I have been testing using this as a manual trailing stop, adjusting it up as the trade moves.  This has in fact worked quite well for me.  I have not been able to get out fast enough on a direction change so this acts like a safety netting for me to keep profits.

Four years ago none of this would have made any sense to me. I had no knowledge of the stock market, options or what was involved in trading. The Master The Markets course I took back then has turned out to be a really good investment. As Dani Johnson pointed out, investing in my self, in my personal development, always pays back.

Now, if the S&P 500 would pick some direction.  Its been in a channeling flag pattern for months. Lets see if it stays above the 100 MA this time.

Environment is Stronger than Willpower

I remember reading this line in a home study lessons I took by Paramahansa Yogananda.  They were just words. Some part of me hoped it was not true. In fact I would say that a good deal of my life was spent trying to prove this statement wrong.

Every time I went on a vacation to California, after a few days, I would reach a point of clarity about my life and what I wanted to do.   Problem was as soon as I returned home, “home” and “habit” would engulf me back into my old routines and the clarity and the plans I had made while away would be rescheduled, put on hold, lost,and then forgotten.

I just did not get it- How could I be so clear when I was away on a trip, but could not hold on to that when I got home to my comfortable apartment.

It has taken many years for me to finally accept that statement “Environment is stronger than willpower”. I am no longer trying to disprove it.  I see the reality of it and have experienced it many times.

Getting away even for a few days or a few hours into nature can bring me that clarity.

Feeling stuck in a rut?

Take a Vacation!

Just 3 days and 2 nights in a hotel,  a completely different environment,   can help you get clear.  Make some solid plans with dead lines while you are away.  Get an accountability partner to help you stay focused when you return.

Want to give it a try?

contact me  from www.EvelynRosa.com

Ask me how you can qualify to get a 3 day 2 night hotel stay.
Try it for your self and then share your experience.

 

 

This is for the women

This is for the women who don’t give a fuck.

The women who are first to get naked, howl at the moon and jump into the sea.

The women who drink too much whisky, stay up too late and have sex like they mean it.

The women who know they aren’t sluts because they enjoy sex, but human beings with a healthy sexual appetite.

The women who will ask you for what they need in bed.

This is for the women who seek relentless joy; the ones who know how to laugh with their whole souls.

The women who speak to strangers because they have no fear in their hearts.

The ones who wear “night make up” in the morning or don’t own mascara.

The women who know their worth, who plant their feet and roar in their brilliance.

The women who aren’t afraid to tell a man to get the fuck out of her heart if he doesn’t honour her heart.

This is for the women who rock combat boots with frilly skirts.

The women who swear like truck drivers.

The women who hold the people who harass or wrong them with fierce accountability.

The women who flip gender norms and false limitations the bird and live to run successful companies giving “the man” a run for his name.

The ones who don’t find their success a compliment just because they have a vagina.

Women like Gloria Steinem who, when she was told, “We want a writer, not a woman. Go home,” kept writing anyway.

This is for the women who drink coffee at midnight and wine in the morning, and dare you to question it.

For the women who open doors for men and are confident enough to have doors opened for them.

Who use “no” to be in service for themselves.

Who don’t give a damn about pleasing the world, and do sweetly as they wish.

For the superheroes—the single moms who work three jobs to make it. I salute your resilient, cape-flapping, ambitious selves.

This is for the women who throw down what they love, and don’t waste time following society’s pressures to exist behind a white picket fence.

The women who create wildly, unbalanced, ferociously and in a blur at times.

The women who know how to be busy and know how to plant their feet in the earth and get grounded.

These are the women I want around me.
