Tuesday 04/14/09 - Back home

I got back to Chicago this past Sunday. Overall, the trip to Geneva and Dubai was a good time but I did get a little bored towards the end of it (Dubai is a small place and there's only so much to see). I met with Dubai Professional Trading Group while I was out there. They're a trading arcade & prop firm and primarily trade futures and commodities. I also finished reading Reminiscences of a Stock Operator during my trip; it is an excellent book and I recommend everyone read it at least twice (I plan on re-reading it myself in the next couple of weeks).

I didn't trade yesterday, and barely put on any trades today. Just didn't feel right today (psychologically), so stayed away from the screens for most of the day. I would just swing by the PC here and there, and put on a trade if I saw something at that moment. Tomorrow will be light as well since I have a dentist appointment. Ended the day with a net gain of +$215.40

I was about to download pictures from my Dubai trip, and since I had my camera handy, I figured I would take a quick shot of my trading setup, so here it is:

On to the charts...

  1. Baller screen setup!!! You make me look so damn ghetto! lol

  2. LOL...think of how much $ you could make with a triple or quad screen setup. Ahh, if only more screens meant more profits :D

  3. Goodness gracious...3 huge screens... I have only 1, and a laptop. And already that's too many for me coz I hate having to turn my head from left to right and right to left every second. Makes me really dizzy! LOL!
    Really cool setup :-)
