A day in the life of a swing trader (More daily trader.... More someone that is trying)

Alright, interesting day.

Yesterday I slept so late and I can't remember why. Anyway, I woke up at 7 am (I usually wake up at 6) feeling like crap but didn't wanted to miss my live session of trading. It went smooth, no trades but some in the sight and then I went to sleep again like at 9 or so.

Now, I don't know if I can do this but I'll put here a link to the 3 crazy dreams I had to day between 9 to 12 am they were crazy.

After that I went to do some manual work with my dad an we drive to somewhere a bit far from our house and I was able to see the "lock-down" here in Guatemala. Crazy traffic, people in "plazas" and the most crazy part, some people outside with white flags asking for food as this became a trend a while ago here in the city. I'm trying not to make any thoughts about the behavior of Guatemalans through this pandemic but well, it's hard.

Coming back to the topic. Trading is not easy. It hit right in that part where we as humans are so bad at it. Changing your behavior. It's really difficult, even with a guy that tells you what to do (which is free and it's a great guy if you want to read him https://www.youtube.com/user/TraderJCL) You still go ahead and play the game with your own rules, following your gut and making clear mistakes when you look back.

I'll do an article about trading over time when I get more knowledge and I improve. Right I still can't talk to much about it with just a couple of months in the game.
