Hitting the loss cut order

My USD/CHF hit the loss-cut order.
That is a usual thing when you try to trade on merriman cycle.

My CHF/JPY was in tough time but it began to rally. It may be usual on short term cycle which I, and maybe others too, found.

Actually I have nothing to write except of the market.

I have to restart my English training, and I need to forget TOEIC test on last weekend for a while. But I remember not to understand English till part3. Why did such a thing happen?

TOEIC test

I took TOEIC test yesterday.

In short, it wasn't done well. I'm not sure that you know the listening section has part 1 to part 4, when I came to understand English was after remaining 10 questions of part 3. I could solve part 5 in about 10 minutes, but I was tired remaining 10 questions of part 7. I'm not sure that I could graduate 695 points which I get twice, in July and October.

My feeling is that I could get high score if I'm familiar with test venues. Hence I was eaten by the atmosphere.

As I wrote in Japanese, I'll retire TOEIC test if I get 695 points this time again.

TOEICの個人的な感想

TOEICを受けて帰ってきた。

個人的な感想を書くが、今回はダメだとわかっている。リスニングのpart3の残り10問くらいまで英語は頭に入ってこなくて、公式問題集で8割取れた感じになったのはそれ以降だった。リーディングは残り10問のマルチパッセージでスタミナ切れになった。

そういうわけで、思う通りにできなかった。今度こそは700超えるかというと、割と無理そうな感じがしている。家で発揮できている英語力と試験会場でのそれが全然違う感じがするので、これからは試験会場なれ、別の言い方をすると公共の場で英語を使う訓練が必要に感じる。そして、そんな機会はない。

これでTOEICは引退だろう。

だが、もうちょっと頑張ればいい線いけそうな気がするので、4月も受けるかもしれない。ちょっと酒を飲みながら考える。

TOEIC test day

Today is TOEIC test day.

My raw scores of the practice test say that I can get at least over 700 points, but, as I wrote many times, there is no warrant to get decent TOEIC score if I get decent raw score of practice test. But I don't need to be felt pleasure to take TOEIC test. I can think the test one of one million tests I have ever taken.

I'm sure that I improved my English skill, so I don't need to be afraid this TOEIC test.

My gain in stock market

I exited my long position of Nomura HD yesterday because Nikkei225 was sanku(三空) on Sakata Gohou.

I was earned less than I expected, but it's better than hitting the stop-loss order. Nikkei225 future declined last night, so I found it a good decision to quit the trade.

In currency market. CHF/JPY is in good shape. Daily chart was in 3rd of Eliot wave principle. So it must go high. USD/CHF is still wondering, so I need to be with what will happen.

I found myself in a particular trading pattern. I will also get the revenue this year if it's right.

Friday, January 27, 2017

I had another position

I don't need to write this blog, but I'll write.

I had some long position of USD/CHF. I already have CHF/JPY long, so I can say it's same as USD/JPY. But each position is based on merriman cycle, so these have to be other deals, maybe.

Yesterday Nikkei225 was rallied well. It'll go over 20 thousand yen, I wish. My Nomura HD draw spike too. It became a plus deal. I wish that the spike continue until Chinese New Year begins.

My nephews was at my home last evening. Little come to speak some words as we say. He speaks strange words sometimes, and everyone say it's English, but I know that he doesn't speak English and that he speaks his own words. But he will be able to speak well by next summer.

Who I dislike

I don't have any particular thing to write.

I don't really want to write today because a man is reading this blog. I don't think he is a friend now, but one day he suddenly phoned to me saying that he worry about me with my blog. My father took the phone, but I didn't took. I'm very afraid about that, because I dislike to bring my blog into my real life. In addition I dislike him because he try my knowledge and laugh at me if I don't know about it. He has a pleasure if he is above me. He is rare people I dislike.

Vocabulary book

I don't have particular thing to write.

My CHF/JPY is relatively in good shape. Nikkei225 future a little rarried last night. So I don't need to worry about the market.

I bought a vocabulary book which everyone call Kinhure. I checked a half of the book, and I found 7 words which I don't memorize. I felt worry about TOEIC test.

Tuesday, January 24, 2017

It's a tough time

My CHF/JPY is in tough time.

But it may recover from here, and this deal is based on cycle, so I don't need to loss-cut until the price reached my stop-loss order. Of cource it will be lost deal but I never get revenue without risks.

Suddenly acsesses to my blog is desapeared. From Christmas holiday, I got incredible page views, but it may be end. I'm sorry for me, but it's initially unbelievable that the worthless blog like this gets many page views.

Where to go?

My nose is running. It's hay fever.

It's a little early this year. But I have medicines which I took last year, and I took it this morning. In addition I already prepared high quality facial tissue.

I took reading section of TOEIC practice test as I wrote in Japanese, and I got 81/100 of raw score. I may reach 800 points. But there is no guarantee to get 800 points even if I get 80% of raw score. TOEIC has their own measurement to indicate scores.

But I declared that I go abroad if I got 800 points, and I haven't decided where to go yet. I have ever been to Taiwan once. I want to go other country. Canada, US, Netherland, UK, or Southeast Asia countries. I want to try my English, so I want to go where people speak English.

I'm already feeling to win, but real TOEIC test is next Sunday.

TOEIC模試リーディングで8割

TOEIC公式問題集をリーディングだけ解いた。
L&R1のTest2だ。
結果を先に書く。

Part5 26/30 (87%)
Part6 11/16 (68%)
Part7 44/54 (81%)
合計 81/100

予想スコアの中間値は395だ。全体的に簡単に感じたが、8割行くとは思わなかった。昨日のリスニングの予想スコアと合わせて777になる。これは予想スコアの上限値と下限値を足して2で割っているので、中途半端な数字になっている。もちろんズルじゃない。ちなみに、最後の方でいくつか飛ばしたが、3問残しまで迫った。やはり全体に手をつけられるとPart7の正答率は8割行くらしい。

採点が終わった後、軽くクラっときたので、相当集中して読んでいたのだと思う。私は思ったよりやれるのかもしれない。本番でダメだったらどうしようもないが。

全体的に何がマズくて間違っていたかよくわからないので、採点した段階では個別の感想を書きにくい。しばらく休憩してから見直しをする。気づいたことがあったら以下に追記する。

見直しをしたので、今後の課題を書いておく。

全体的に語彙問題で間違えていると言える。だから、やはりすでにわかっている間違い問題の単語を記憶に留めるのと、キクタンなり何なりの単語帳でボキャビルした方がいいのではと。さらに気をつける点としては、「この単語は果たして使うことがあるだろうか?」と油断して単語帳を流し読みみたいにしていると、しょうもない単語で足元をすくわれると思う。

それ以外では「何でこれに気づかなかったのだ?」という問題は多少あったものの、そういううっかりミスを減らすには英語力そのものよりも問題演習的な対策が必要かと思う。

だから、仮にスコアアップにこだわるとして、今後取り組むべきは、読む力をこれからも伸ばすことと、語彙を蓄えることだ。単語カードで覚えるような暗記法は自分に向かないことがわかっているので、音読などで体にすりこむようなタイプの教材、あるいは読むことで自然に単語を覚えられるような読み物を探す必要がある。そんなものがあるかわからないが。さらに言えばそれを継続的に行うための時間を確保しないといけない。

TOEICに限って言えば、やれることがかなり絞れるようになってきた。ただ、自分の性分として、「TOEICのためにやるのだ」と思ってやれるか?という問題がある。だから今後も「TOEICは測定ツールであって、私は英語力そのものをつけるのだ」と思って実行に移せるようにできればいいと思う。

I was tired

I can't write any interesting thing today.

I took TOEIC practice test yesterday. Only listening section. And I didn't any usual lesson because I rescheduled the lesson plan to take the practice test. As I already wrote in Japanese yesterday, the raw score was 77/100. Expected TOEIC score of listening section was roughly 380. It mean I had no change than before. Today, I took the reading part of the test.

I didn't record YouTube video because I was too tired for the test. Maybe I won't do that this weekend and next too. I feel difficulty of making a habit. The main reason is that no one watch my video opposed to my blog. Do I need more fluency? Trading is unattractive? There is no need middle-aged man speaking?

TOEIC模試リスニング8割行かず

TOEIC公式問題集をリスニングだけ解いた。
L&R1のTest2だ。
結果を先に書く。

Part1 4/6 (66%)
Part2 18/25 (72%)
Part3 30/39 (76%)
Part4 25/30 (83%)
合計 77/100

問題集のスコア換算の中間は382だ。400行くか行かないかくらいが私の今の能力らしいが、それって7月のリスニングのスコアとあまり変わってないってことじゃないだろうか?

問題全体を通して言えば、朝一になんの準備運動もなしによく聴けたと思うが、Part1と2があまりできなかった。今日は瞬発的なリスニング力に欠ける感じか。あるいは、Part1が特にそうだが、語彙力不足を感じないでもない。NHK実践ビジネス英語のおかげで語彙力が伸びていると思うが、簡単な単語に抜けがあると感じる。もう試験まで1週間しかないからどうしようもない気がするが、せめて前回今回とできなかった所はしっかり復習したい。

あと言えることは、今回は前回のTest1に比べて疲れを感じていないので、あまり集中できていなかったかもしれない。だから、これがどんな時でも出せる本当の実力だと言えるかもしれない。つまり長期的に言って素点にはあまり変化がない。

試験1週間前を前にして、あまり成績が良くなくてショックかと思いきや、もうTOEICなんてどうでも良くなっていて何ともない。今回の本番のスコアが3度目の695だったとしても、成績が伸びなかったらこれ以上受けないと決めているので、割と気楽に考えている。それに今はTOEICスコアよりは主観で英語が理解できることを楽しんでいるし、それで自分が幸せならいいと思っている。これは別に言い訳ではなく、本心で。

ちょっと休憩してから見直しをして、問題文のシャドーイングでもしようと思う。気づいたことがあったら追記する。明日はリーディングを解く予定。

一通り見直しが終わったので、気づいたことを書く。

part1は、意外な語彙が欠けていることに気づいた。あとは、最近あまりなかったが発音の聞き違いがあった。こう言うのは多分前後を完全に理解できていると補完できるのではないかと思っているのだが、そう言うレベルに実際に達しないとわからない。あとはそれっぽい回答をなんとなく選べるセンスがあると良いのだろう。そう言うのに期待してはいけない。

part2は単に集中していなかった、とか、自分で想定できていないひねった回答を選べていない、とか。これは受験テクニック的に消去法で潰すようにしないとダメだろう。でも、今から練習はできないと言うか、する気がない。

part3も自分で経験のないシチュエーションで理解できてない。例えばバイトのシフトの話なんて日本語でもしたことがないので、ちょっと設問に腹が立った。

part4はひょっとしたら、わかった問題にチョン付けしたのが良くなかったかもしれない。トークが終わるまでマークするのを我慢すると意外と正答率があがるかもしれない。こう言う時に問題冊子に書き込みができるといいと思うのだが。

そう言うわけで、今以上の英語力をつけて力でこなせないならば、ほぼ回答テクニックが課題になってきた気がする。でも英語力そのものを伸ばしたい。

Turezure Diary

Next weekend, I'm going to take TOEIC test.

The practice test which I took was 159/200 of raw score, almost 80%. But I know that I can't get 800 of TOEIC score if I get the raw score. In the worst pattern I guess, I'll get 695 points again. It's a nightmare for me.

I found that I can improve my listening skill by not only reading books but listening radio sitcoms for a hour. After listening Cabin Pressure of BBC yesterday, I can listen to English more decently. The point is to understand English with concentration.

I was sleeping when president Trump was addressing in Washington. And Nikkei225 was a little lower than daytime. And CHF/JPY was temporarily about 50 pips lower. But I can say that it wasn't catastrophic thing. I can't say what will happen in the future. But we don't need to be too afraid.

By the way, I'll record YouTube video about CHF/JPY and Nomura HD which I hold. I need to practice speaking English.

Over 30 days with Duolingo

I have studied French with Duolingo for more than 30 days.

I'm able to write in French like: Je suis un homme. Tu es un cochon. Mon femme est petit. It's probably like freshman of junior highschool's English in Japan. But it's about half a year since I intended to study French, and my main concern is English. So I'm better than other lazy French learners.

I want not to write about trading, but I don't have particular things to write.

I bought some stocks of Nomra HD. I'm not sure whether I could get certain result. But I suddenly want to buy it. Maybe I'll lose, but I have realized gain of last year. I can do adventures. Actually I guess primary cycle bottom of Nikkei225 will be in March, or April. So I don't have to buy stocks or ETFs now.

My CHF/JPY long position is nice. I'm holding it at least more a week, even if there will be president Trump's risk. By some chance it will be big money. From December when I restarted FX deals, I already got 4% of unrealized-base gains, which is percentage from equity for FX deals. I am surprised by FX's efficiency. Of cource you can kill yourself with FX if you don't know trading basics.

May the position not be loss-cut by president Trump.

I was defeated

I had sad experiences.

I'm sorry for writing about FX again. But it was very sad. I had long positions of USD/CAD, USD/JPY and shot position of AUD/USD, hence I bought USD yesterday. But I closed with small changes the same day, yesterday. After I got up, I realized these were drawing sharp spikes. I felt myself defeated.

But I found CHF/JPY at PCB or around yesterday too. So I had a long position of it. So I got a unrealized gain of it.

According to this gain/lose, I won't completely lose money probably. Perhaps. Maybe. So I'm going to trade FX through this year, and train myself for dealing FX.

When new year, I wrote that I won't sweat trading, but it will go completely different direction. Of cource I'm studying English and French very hard.

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

I'll make YouTube video

I completed the transfer of a part of money to a securities.

And I began to trade. But I lost last year's gain on FX. I supposed that USD/CAD reached the primary cycle bottom or around, so I had some long position of it. I'm no confident about that. But no risk, no gain.

Nikkei225 will go downward as I guess. But amount of my inverse ETF is small. So I couldn't get much money. Initially I see Nikkei225 will go upward in the long run, so I'm not willing to sell short very much. So I don't need to take much gain by selling short this year.

I had a theme for YouTube video. But I have to speak English, or Japanese? For Japanese who are interested in the market, I need to speak Japanese. For practice speaking English, I need to speak English. My feeling says that there is no difference when it comes to getting watchers, it's very few. So I'll speak about the market in English.

Tuesday, January 17, 2017

What I wanted to write yesterday

What I wanted to write yesterday was mainly that I must intake read-a-lot method.

But I didn't read decent reading yesterday as usual. I don't want to read thinking like "hum... I'm reading for study". So I need really interesting readings. Of cource it's my excuse. Reading Grit without grit is embarrassing.

I ordered new stop loss order to buy Nikkei225 inverse ETF. I don't know whether it's right using the word "stop loss" when initial entry order. Actually my order was hit yesterday. But I found my order wrong, my mistake, so I loss-cut immediately and set up new order. Though I see after close that I didn't need to exit the position because the price was moving toward which I aimed, I always have to act strictly.

Monday, January 16, 2017

I lost

I lost my writing in electronic workplace.
I'm sorry for no update today. 

If I would recover from the shock, I could write it again.

Sunday, January 15, 2017

TOEIC模試リーディングは8割行かず

今日はTOEIC公式問題集をリーディングだけやった。
L&R Vol1のTest1だ。
結果を先に書く。

Part5 21/30 (70%)
Part6 14/16 (88%)
Part7 39/54 (72%)
合計 74/100

ちなみに10問塗り絵でそのうち3問運よく正解だったので実力では71点だ。74点だったとして、推定スコアの中間は340点だ。前回のリスニングと合わせると、745点になる。もちろん素点だけでこのスコアにはならないのは知っている。その上で、あまりいい点数ではないと感じるが、以前よりは読めるようになったという感覚を持てている。長文を読んでいて疲れすぎて頭が回らないということも、主観ではなくなった。ただ、今回リーディングだけ解いたので、先週のリスニングのような疲労感を持って解いたらどうなるかはわからない。

それと、とにかく読んでから解くというスタイルにこだわったので、もうちょっとテクニック的なものがあるとスコアが上がる気もするが、そういう方向には行きたくない。いくべきだろうか?

Part5が思ったよりできなかったが、結局試験対策を断念したのが悪い意味で効いていると思う。これを改善するには、結局問題集をまめに解かないといけないわけで、それは個人的に苦痛なのでやりたくない。でもやるべきだろうか?

Part6は丁寧に読んで解いたので、出来ているべき問題。

Part7は解いた問題の正答率が82%なので、もうちょっと読む力がつけば素点が上がる気がする。だが、リーディングの正確性にまだ問題があるのは確かで、なぜ間違えているのかはっきりさせる必要はあるだろう。思ったより丁寧に読んでないか、語彙に問題があるかどちらかの気がする。

1時間ほど休憩してから、出来なかった問題を復習する。
何か気づきがあったらここに追記するが、多分疲れて書く気力もなくなっているだろう。

疲れが取れたので、見直しで気づいたことを書く。

まずpart5だが、語彙問題での間違いが多かった。ボキャビルをほとんどサボって、NHK実践ビジネス英語の単語を音読などで覚えていたのだが、何かの似た方法でボキャビルに特化できないかと考えている。今から対策しても試験には間に合わないので、いきなり取り掛かることはしないが。

part7は思った以上に見落としが多かった。「なぜここに気づかなかったのだ?」という問題が意外と多くて、無意識に読み飛ばしている箇所があるように見られる。手をつけなかった10問に関しては、行間を読む問題をこなせないとこれらの問題まで到達したとしても正解できないと感じた。

何か長期的に対策するとしたら、キクタンをたまに読み返して忘れている単語を復習するのと、やはりpart7対策は多読だと感じている。今日the Economistを読んだ感じ、読めるようになって来ているので、色々な題材で英文を読むようにするべきだろう。聞き流しは楽だが、多読は意識しないと決してできないのでなかなか大変だが。

Sticking to one thing

I'm sorry for talking about the market on Sunday.

I'm preparing to transfer some of my money for FX trading to another securities. Actually I traded FX at the securities for stock market. It's good for trading stocks, ETFs, and futures. But they don't deal many kind of currencies, and last week, their FX app suddenly froze while pondering whether I have to exit the deal. Another securities which I'll transfer is relatively good company when it comes to FX dealing from my experiences. Of cource I reserved most money in the securities for the stock market.

Yesterday I reviewed some pair of currencies. I wrote it down some real papers with pen. And I found some same traits among currency pairs. Wether I can deal with these caractarics is another problem, but I was grown up much more than when I began stock trading. The point is probably proper stop-loss order and never giving up.

So I'm going to study English for a long time. I experienced many fabulous or surprising things thanks for studying English for only one years. So I need to stick to that even if TOEIC score is remaining 695 points forever.

Saturday, January 14, 2017

It's chilly weekend

It's chilly morning. This weekend is the coldest days this year, I heard.

But my room is relatively warmer because of its big window and fine weather. So I'm wearing only long sleeved T-shirt in samue. Sometimes I wear a sweater, but it's sometimes.

I remember that Montbell sells samue. I checked the website and I found it's not too expensive. If my cheap samue worn out, I'll buy it.  It will be a far future. My samue has tough sawing, so it seems to never worn out.

AUD/USD touched around 75MA of 60min chart in this midnight. I perfectly realized my idea of short term cycles. But I'm sorry for missing the best market timing of January 3. I had some long position but I suddenly threw it because of my condition of mind. I already write about that, but it's my worst weakpoint.

Friday, January 13, 2017

Strange things

Strange thing happened.

I read a book, Grit, after a while to check my reading skill of English. I read about a hour, and I progressed 6% of the book. it was the kindle book. Anyway. After that I forcused to BBC radio, and I found myself listening to English very easily like "Listen to me, Toshio. I'm talking to your mind directly". I was surprised, and I listened to BBC for a while. I'm sure that I understood it. But I was back to initial status, because I pondered in Japanese why I came to understand English well.

I'll write more strange thing.

I checked geocosmic timing in  ephemeris. It was around 11 PM in Japan yesterday. After getting up, about a hour ago, I checked AUD/USD chart, and I found that it was turn around around 11 PM. I wasn't surprised because I already know that the thing like that will happen from my experiences. I thought "No wonder!". But I'm grad to have done like finding holy grave. But maybe it's everyone's consensus. And I can't deal with only that.

Thursday, January 12, 2017

Worst weak point of my mind

Yesterday's AUD/USD was great.

But I got no more than 1 yen even though my idea of swing cycle I named was true. I didn't believe myself. I found the worst weak point of my mind. If I couldn't overcome it, I never win on the market.

From the day before yesterday, I began to write with pen and paper about my deal. I need to write it to get the revenue. It was already 9th paper. Maybe I'll never look back these papers, but I'll input these in my mind.

I'll trade no more this week. I'll review my idea of cycle on other currencies.

Wednesday, January 11, 2017

Too many lost deals

I probably caught a cold. But I felt better.

I don't want to write about FX, but I don't have anything to write.

Yesterday I had a long position of AUD/USD, and I lost. In addition after that I lost again. But this morning, I found it swing cycle bottom I named, perfectly, maybe. I tend to have too many position once I win. So I need to reduce chance to trade.

Speaking of "chance to". I succeeded to reduce chance to drink. Maybe it was Christmas and New Year why I drank every day. I soundly sleep recently without beer, and I can think sharply.

Yesterday I wrote that NHK English was recently easy, but yesterday's lesson was very hard. I reviewed 2 lessons beforehand, but I felt tired and it was difficult. I was too tired and felt no recover, so I guessed that I caught a cold and took kakkonto, harbal medicine. This morning I felt better.


Tuesday, January 10, 2017

FX and NHK English

I got small change on AUD/USD.

Yesterday, I wrote that I was looking for the timing for long position of AUD/USD. But the price won't go where I aimed, so I decided to trade on swing trading cycle, which I named now. There is very short cycle which we can recognize short term chart. And then I had long position. This morning I got the gain as much as the risk I took. Swing cycle is much weaker than primary cycle, maybe, so I got the gain.

I don't know that it was a good deal, but if I was sticking the primary cycle, I couldn't get the revenue.

Incidentally, NHK English cource which I'm studying was easier than ever yesterday. I study it by CD tracks and texts, so I don't need to meet the radio broadcasts and the schedule. I'm studied this month's second theme. And I found it very easy. I guess that the teacher made it easier because there is new comers who begin from this new year.

Monday, January 9, 2017

Tsurezure Diary

I forgot to record YouTube video about my deal.

Simply I forgot about that. Once-a-week habit is difficult to continue. But it's more difficult to be daily habit, because I have nothing to talk everyday. It's very hard to speak what come to mind without mistake. Off cource I can record speaking with mistake.

I wrote in Japanese yesterday that I got 85% of raw score on listening section of a TOEIC practice test. Expected score is about 400, so I reached my maximum score on listening section. But I know that raw score doesn't directly transfer to TOEIC score, so I can't be reassured by that.

I'm looking for the timing to enter long position of AUD/USD again. I see the time will come today, maybe. But the price I aimed has the danger of going under the primary cycle bottom. It's very tough.

TOEIC模試で8割行った

英語学習の話題なので、日本語で書く。

TOEIC公式問題集のリスニングだけといた。L&R Vol1のTest1だ。結果を先に書く。

Part1: 5/6 (83%)
Part2: 22/25 (88%)
Part3: 32/39 (82%)
Part4: 26/30 (86%)
全体 85/100

問題集にある予想スコアの中間値は400点くらいだ。まあ、これくらい取れればそれほど恥ずかしくはないレベルかもしれない。ただ、Test1だから簡単な可能性はある。

全体的な感想だが、とりあえず以前と比べて聞き取れるようになったという実感はある。それだけで今日試しにやってみた意味はあった。しかも、今回Part3で突然の母の登場で動揺したわりに得点が落ちてないのは収穫だった。これでまた695だったら本当にTOEICなんて受けるべきではないだろう、というくらいの自信にはなった。ただ、模試が終わった後の疲労感が未だにあるので、その後のリーディングのスコアにつなげていくのは厳しいかもしれない。結局公開試験を受けてみないと正確な結果ははっきりしない、としか言えないかも。

まだ本番でないのに勝因を書くが、CNN English Expressを取り入れたのと、瞬間英作文を地道に続けたのが良かったかもしれない。もちろんNHK実践ビジネス英語を毎日続けたことが根本的なレベルアップにつながっていると思う。read and look upを取り入れた効果がもう出たか。とにかく、自分なりに勉強法を工夫したのが良かった、と思えないと、この先も勉強は続かないだろう。

午後はできなかった問題をおさらいする。

I dislike TOEIC test

Actually, I'm losing confidence of my English skill.

Recently I can't listen to BBC worse than a month ago. I can say that originally I can't listen, but I can listen to NHK English cource better. I don't know why.

I have to practice next TOEIC test. I need to know in advance how well I can solve the question. But I come to dislike TOEIC test, so I may not do the practice test before the day.

I can guess that I'll get 695 points again, it is third time, and that makes me disappointed. Why doesn't the test advise me what to do next?

Saturday, January 7, 2017

Need to reduce drinking

I don't have anything to write.

I couldn't give up AUD/USD. So I put a IFD order for it. By some chance I'll get long position of AUD/USD. Of cource even if I could get it, I could be hit the loss cut order after that.

Recently I lost a whole writing skill both English and Japanese. I used to be able to write long article of my life. But I'm back to foolish one which is gathering of short sentences. Lately I have been drinking every day, so I lose the important part of thinking maybe. I was drinking once a week, but now every day. I don't need to quit drinking completely, but obviously need to reduce my chances of drinking. I'm not sure that makes me a good writer, but my life will be better.

Friday, January 6, 2017

I got a amulet

I woke up early because I went to bed(huton) early, around 20 o'clock.

My parents and I went to a Zen temple near my home. And we got amulets. My amulet's wishes are 当病平癒(illness gets better) and 学業増進(learning boosts). I want to wish something about trading, but there isn't like that in the list of wishes. It's probably nice because I'm not sure to continue trading through this year.

Today is on-sore day of CNN English Express. Last month issue proceeded relatively smoothly, and this week I studied a part of November issue where I didn't study. This month will be like that too. This method will be retain at least next year.

New year started to run. This year will be nice probably.

Thursday, January 5, 2017

Zen temple

As I wrote the day before yesterday, AUD/USD moved sharply.
I don't know why I exit the trade.

Recently I always say myself that there is no good thing. So I brought a bad thing. I sometimes think like that, but I can't bring myself right direction. I know about that, but that isn't the part of me. This has crucial difference.

My parents and I are going to a Zen temple today. We get new amulets and have soba every year.

By the way, my nephew was back home last evening. His family is going on a trip for a few days. His homework was finished yesterday perfectly. So he don't need to be worry about that.

Wednesday, January 4, 2017

TOEIC test coming soon

Yesterday, I had some long position of AUD/USD. But closed.
I can say that beer was bad for the trading.

And I have nothing to write.

By the way, I'm going to take TOEIC test in January. I'm studying English, but I don't do anti-test training recently because I was bored. Maybe I'll get 700 points or around on the test, and it'll make me so bad. I want to quit TOEIC test anyway.

I don't have good condition. I'll stop writing.

Tuesday, January 3, 2017

New week is starting

I guess that western countries starts workday today.

Forex market already started. I see AUD/USD seems to reach primary cycle bottom or around. So I'm looking for the time to deal. Different from EUR/USD, AUD/USD has plus swap points, so I can deal more easily. Of cource there is no difference that dollar goes high.

Writing as usual.

My brother's family came my home last evening. They are going on a trip a few days. My mother and they probably talked about that. Preparing the trip, my elder nephew who are staying my home is finishing his home work with the plan. He is great. When I was a kid, I didn't do my home work hard like him. I want him to learn the way to effort and be a great person not like me.

Shogatsu

Yesterday was Shogatsu, the new year day.

We drank local raw sake as otoso, the new year sake, and we eat osechi, the new year cousine. I gave my nephew otoshidama, children's pocket money of new year. And I didn't study English as special holiday. I did French with Duolingo because it takes only 10 minutes.

I'll study English today. I don't feel new year well, but I have schedule I planed. I have been getting my English skill by continuing to study according to the plan, so I have to do as usual.

A happy new year

A happy new year.

Thank you for reading this blog last year. I'm writing the blog every morning in Japan this year too.

This year, I'll continue studying English. I'll study English more 2 years at least if I'm not bored. And I'm happy if studying French go well.

I have no aim except of studying foreign languages. They say that you will be better if you have a aim at the beginning of year, but I had done well last year not having new-year aim. One year is too long to aim at something. By some chance, I'll deal ETF and currency more hard than last year. But it probably won't connect to my happiness. So I won't sweat it for small changes.

Enjoy reading.
