There are so many crosscurrents in the market right now between Oil and Europe QE, Currency Wars, the threat of rate hikes, insane volatility. My account is undergoing massive swings again this year already and after a huge influx of profit cushion, today just dipped below the proverbial line in the sand that allows me to daytrade. I am very confused and tired right now. I got sucked into primarily swing trading positions again thinking that the bears finally stood a chance at sinking their claws into the market and the fucking bulls just rip us exactly where they needed to step in. Is the whole thing manipulated by Central Bankers? Yes. But am I going to take them on and fight them? Fuck no I can't do that. But I also can't bring myself to go long what is obviously a house of cards that could entirely collapse at any minute. Im stressed out right now, trying to separate what is important from what is white noise, a task that proves much more difficult than you would ever anticipate. Predicting the future is a tough business. It's scary knowing that I am right on the knife edge right now and any day could swing me towards ruin or vast fortune. This fucking market is chopping me up...
