I’ve not posted lately but I have been watching / trading the market as usual.
My normal routine is to get up at 5 a.m. and check the charts.
I get ready for work (Shower, shave, etc) then do my pre-work duties such as tend the Aquabiotic Farm (hobby www.Aquabiotic.com) and feed all of my critters. (Wild Turkey, cats, earthworms, fish, ducks etc).

Then I leave for work (45 min drive under good conditions).  I arrive at my desk for trading about 7:00 – 7:20 a.m.and start my charts and data feeds.  Start Twitter, StockTwits, Econ News Feed and CNBC plays in the background.  Although these are running, I only check them initially to get a feel for the market sentiment and pending Econ Reports about to be released.

Today, the market was mostly flat and not moving well.  I took one stab at a trade and quickly decided to exit for a +1 tick on the ES.  This is almost like breaking even after commissions.  The charts for the day are below.  It is now 8:30 and I’m done for the day unless I decide to get on later during the FOMC report at 1:15.
