Trading Nightmare – I'm Awake And In Profit

One of my computers called me about an hour and a half ago.

Plucked from the grasp of yet another “unsettling dream” ( for what ever reason I am continually plagued by dreams of having my teeth pulled / ripped / removed / taken in ever increasingly “bizarre fashion” ) I welcomed the alert, and eagerly leapt from the bed to silence the soft repeating tone.

Several trades had been picked up, and to my surprise – the U.S Dollar taking a relatively huge hit as the London sessions moved into their first couple hours trading. My surprise? Of course not – you know that. Everything moving accordingly to plan with the added bonus of still having every single tooth intact! How wonderful!

And with so many caught in nightmares of their own, gobbling up useless news stories of tapering and the assumed effect of a “much stronger dollar”.

EUR and GBP are obviously the biggest winners here as per trades in the comment section some hours ago as well a quick tweet.

The “tooth removal” dreams are extremely unpleasant, and it’s really no wonder I don’t sleep a whole lot. Thankfully I was “saved by the bell” here this evening, and rewarded with some fantastic trade entries.

In celebration I plan to eat 3 lbs of chocolate, a full tub of ice cream and as many stale candy canes as I can wrestle from the kids across the street.


I can fully understand that this must be moving way to fast for some of you as…..only hours later (in fact less ) I’ve already banked just under 400 pips across the board in 6 pairs total, and will now be looking for pull back on smaller time frames – and of course re entry.

When some of this goes down in the “dead of night” I don’t imagine there is much some of you can do about it , not having the alerts / computers chiming, the lifestyle ( never sleeping, no kids , no other job, likely insanity ) let alone the interest / dedication / commitment.

We’ll have to find a solution moving forward.

      It’s alot of work Farhan….as all these trades / across 6 pairs where already set “above” the current price action several hours ago.

      So……with a plan ( mine was looking for further U.S weakness ) and orders “already waiting” on momentum – total rake was close to 400 pips across the board, as I’ve already taken profits.

    Pulling teeth was how the Romans ‘extracted’ information from their prisoners…??

    Apparently ‘the final leg of the great rotation’ – into the USD in 2014 – has again been placed on hold.

      I’ve read a number of “creative interpretations” on the reoccuring dreams of teeth being removed / used / whatever….

      These ideas go full circle from it being a “great thing” to the “dark n morbid” (like someone else could ever tell me anyway).

      Let’s just get this 2013 over and done with already he he he… we can expect 2014 to be any better.

      The saga continues.

    ahhh what a night indeed – LOL for those it’s like Kong & I am sure others here just another day with little sleep…. I’ll rest later in life – but for now it’s business as usual….. I get most of my R&R on Sat & Sunday until early night…..About the teeth dreams there is meaning – I will get back too you…. I used to have these often myself – mine would all fall out but another set was there to replace…. again there is meaning….. touch-back with you later…

    Cheers Schmederling
