New Week

Man time can get away quickly. I thought it had only been two or three days since my last update. Just raw time records for today. I am starting to work on a real business plan and want to devote most of my energy to that this evening.

I am writing this paragraph after putting in all of the time records that I was missing. The biggest thing that I noticed over the last four days is that twice the day ends with question marks. I did not record what I was doing with my time after that. My goal for this next week is to not have that happen at all. It is impossible to make any sort of judgment about how I am using my time if I am not able to go back after the fact and review what I did.

Also, I would never expect anyone reading this to look through the time records. I most likely wouldn’t if it was someone else.

Backtesting Bug

I got bit pretty hard by the backtesting bug today. I started looking at adding Ichimoku Cloud analysis to my 2618 trading as an additional requirement prior to entering a trade. It seems to be working out, although I have only tested 50 trades on one pair. I’ll need to finish the complete 100 on all 5 of the currencies I trade to make a final decision on it.

Real Update

I’m happy with how things went today. There were some definite gaps in my time record which isn’t ideal, but I spent most of that with Quinn and Jennie. I am definitely working on finding the balance between maximum time improving ME and being a good father and husband.

I am working through getting some new goals set up that are specifically focused on my business future. Those should be ready to go up tomorrow.
