Get your act together!

"It is not the critic who counts,
not the man who points out
how the strong man stumbled,
or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man
who is actually in the arena;
Whose face is marred by dust, sweat & blood;
who strives valiently;
who errs, comes short again & again;
who knows the great enthusiasms,
the great devotions, and
spends himself in a worthy cause;
who, at best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement;
and who, at the worst, if he fails,
at least fails while daring greatly,
so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls
who know neither victory nor defeat.''

-- Pres. Theodore Roosevelt

smile with the rising sun!

Three little birds





"Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!"

Rise up this mornin',
Smiled with the risin' sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin', ("This is my message to you-ou-ou:")

Singin': "Don't worry 'bout a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."
Singin': "Don't worry (don't worry) 'bout a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!"

Rise up this mornin',
Smiled with the risin' sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin', "This is my message to you-ou-ou:"

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing, worry about a thing, oh!
Every little thing gonna be all right. Don't worry!"
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing" - I won't worry!
"'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right" - I won't worry!
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing, oh no!
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!

"The one certainty about the time ahead..
is that there will be turbulent times,
& in turbulent times, our first task as an organization
is to make sure of our capacity for survival,
to make sure of our structural strength & soundness,
of our capacity to survive a blow,
to adapt to sudden change & to avail of new opportunities
EVEN in the midst of turmoil & change.

USD/CHF



Just getting to know this quiet, not so volatile currency pair USD/CHF, plus the Aussie pairs AUD/USD and AUD/JPY

For intra-day analysis
Price breaks at 1.0588 will have a high probability of a short term bullish
Price breaks below 1.0535 will have a high probability of short term bear
The key in every entry, before entry are: Patience, Momentum and Timing!

In the bigger picture, USD/CHF is possibly in the process of forming a medium term sideway pattern that started as the long term bottom of 0.9634 (2008 low). The pair might continue to stay in converging range of 0.9641/1.2296 for a while. A break of either 0.9916 support or 1.1729 resistance is needed to indicate that USD/CHF is back into a directional trend. Otherwise, medium term outlook will remain neutral.

What is...



Margin is a performance bond, or good faith deposit, to ensure against trading losses. The margin requirement allows traders to hold a position much larger than the account value. There are a lot of brokers' online trading platform has margin management capabilities, which allow for this high leverage. Some brokers have the most lenient margin requirement which is .5%.

In the event that funds in the account fall below margin requirements, the Brokers' Dealing Desk will close some or all open positions. This prevents clients' accounts from falling into a negative balance, even in a highly volatile, fast moving market.

For example, let's say you have an account with $10,000. That means you have $10,000 of usable margin. If you use $7,000 to buy 7 lots of USD/JPY, you now have $3,000 of usable margin left, meaning that you are allowed to lose $3,000 before you are under the margin requirement. The account equity remains at $10,000 until you begin to make or lose money on the position. Now, if the USD/JPY decreases to the point that you end up losing the $3,000 which is left in your account, then Broker's Dealing Desk will close all of your positions to ensure that you do not lose more than you have in your account.

Managing your risk in the financial market: If the equity in your account drops below the margin required to maintain your open positions, the dealing desk will close all open positions. This guarantees limited risk. You also have the ability to track your margin in realtime. In the accounts window you will see 2 columns: used margin; usable margin. The used margin indicates funds currency pledged towards open positions. You can think of usable margin as your “wiggle” room. Once usable margin reaches zero, a margin call will ensue & all positions will be closed, are subject to liquidation at the prevailing market prices by dealing desk this is the margin watcher feature.

Simply put.. Margin is the amount of necessary money needed to place/maintain a position.
Margin Level Percentage is calculated by taking:

Equity/Margin x 100 - Margin Level Percentage
Equity (your true Account Value) is your Balance +/- any open positions.In normally leveraged accounts.

Whatever tomorrow brings...

This very early in the morning, I just remembered what my mother, father & brother only knows.

Most of the time, words cannot express the whole emotion of the moment. [and best heard with good speakers (",) ]

Incubus says or rather sings it better

"Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there,
with open arms and open eyes, yeah.
Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there,
I'll be there.... "



Overall, the week was good ... to make peace with oneself:

Desiderata

Let me remind myself of these words by Max Ehrmann...




Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

Max Ehrmann, Desiderata, Copyright 1952.

Good feel Friday

Got this from another blog... just sharing ..

Off to get married

On their way to getting married, a young couple is involved in a fatal car accident. They find themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates, waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven. While waiting, they begin to wonder: Could they possibly get married in Heaven? When St. Peter shows up, they ask him. St. Peter says, 'I don't know. This is the first time anyone has asked that. Let me go and find out,' and he leaves.

The couple sit and wait, and wait. Two months pass and the couple is still waiting. As they wait, they discuss that if they were allowed to get married in Heaven, what was the eternal aspect of it all. 'What if it doesn't work?' they wondered. 'Are we stuck together forever?'

After yet another month, St. Peter finally returns, looking somewhat bedraggled. 'Yes,' he informs the couple, 'you can get married in Heaven.'

'Great!' says the couple, 'But we were just wondering, what if things don't work out? Can we also get a divorce in Heaven?'

St. Peter, red-faced with anger, slams his clipboard onto the ground.

'What's wrong?' ask the frightened couple.

'OH, COME ON!' St. Peter shouts, 'It took me three months to find a priest up here! Do you have any idea how long it'll take me to find a lawyer?'

Thankful!

It's a good start for this month... have unloaded already 3 major issues this week ... and hopefully will be negotiating for a better deal to unload another 3 major issues next week. If I would be able to get a trustworthy helper, then it would be much faster. Just keep reminding myself to stay on the right track, to focus! FOCUS!
