Tackle Today: Getting Back on the Horse
January 13, 2020
≈ Easier than it sounds. ≈
“Getting back on the horse” is an idiom referring to you returning to or resuming an activity that you had previously failed at or had difficulty with. Because we are human, we constantly will come up short on occasion. Because we are human, we also have the capability of overcoming the obstacles that previously caused us to come short and eventually find success.
So how are those goals for 2020 coming? Have they even been set? Have you looked at them since you set them?
However your 2020 has started out, every morning is a chance to start your life anew. Every morning is a chance to tackle the obstacles that have held you back from the life you desire and the person you truly want to be.
It’s Monday morning January 13th, 2020. It sounds like a fine day to get back riding. Let us know if we can be of help in any way.
Chart of the Day
S&P 500 (SPY)
The is a weekly candlestick chart of the SPY. If you live in a bubble and just follow charts for your trading decisions, you wouldn’t have thought anything even happened last week except a continuation of the short-term uptrend that has existed following the breakout a couple of months ago. No potential war. No geopolitical conflict. Just nice bullish conditions. Earnings season is coming up which can add to or change sentiment, but this chart is an example of the power of charting and a reminder to let technical analysis be a key factor in our decision making process.
