Thoughts on Today's Market ... ,

Many of you know that I am employed in the back office of the brokerage side of a major international bank.
I do not trade for clients or my firm, but do trade for my personal account.

I went from a very nice profit to a small deficit in the span of three days.

Today's action took me in the opposite direction.
The loss was erased and I'm now showing a gain again.
I'm not quite back to where I was, but I would describe the number as "comfortable."

To celebrate, I treated myself to sushi for dinner.
I spent a whole $5.99.
It doesn't take much to keep me satisfied.
