No Sexy Girls in Bikinis!

Monsoon season seems to have started here in Phuket.  It sure is coming down now and smells nice, it's as cool as a warm summer day in Canada.

This weather reminds me of when I lived in Vancouver, or Raincouver as we like to call it.  Actually those were some of my best trading days.

Rawai, Phuket, Thailand

Nowadays I have a hard time concentrating in the heat and with all the distractions Thailand has to offer.  So a little rain is quite welcome.

Next time you're analyzing your trades, consider your environment.  Where did you make your good / bad trades?  Were you in a coffee shop?  At home?  Was it hot? Rainy?  Cold?   Comfy office chair?  On the couch?   Don't laugh, it can make a difference.   Everyone seems to think you can just pull up a laptop and work anywhere.  If you can, kudos to you.  And if you are efficient, wow you are a super star.

As for me, I need a comfy office chair, a decent desk or kitchen table.   I can't do regular chairs.  I also need a decent temperature. Not too hot, not too cold.   Lots of Soda Water on hand, sometimes music, sometimes not.   And no distractions...
