Beaches, Bars, Books, And Ballads…

Dear Reader,

I am shutting down this weekend… completely.

After I shut my computer off when I’m done writing this, I won’t have to suffer the soft glow of the monitor until Sunday night, when I review my watchlist for Options360 and get ready to get on some trades first of next week.

Every few months, I need to just disconnect completely for a weekend, or I go a bit nutty…

And that’s currently where I’m at.

It’s funny because when there are a lot of trades to make, my job is far less mentally draining.

You might think it would be the opposite…

However, there’s a lot more to watch when you are looking for trades than when you are managing them.

Of course, with the market as volatile as it’s been, caution has been the name of the game…

But, I am watching a few stocks very closely for next week, and I think we are going to have some serious opportunities open up.

But, nothing is happening during the weekend, so I am headed to the beach for a day of swimming and reading in the cool Florida fall. (No, it’s not cool, but it doesn’t feel like it’s 220 degrees outside anymore…)

Then, it’s Saturday night at the local tiki bar, for a few adult beverages and some laughs with the other expat northerners.

And Monday we’ll be back at it – full rested and ready to grab some profits.

I want to invite you to join me.

A trial subscription to Options360 is only $19, but the lifelong education you’ll receive is priceless.

My sincerest hope is that you learn how powerful a tool disciplined and responsible trading can be for your future.

To Your Success,
