Patience is Key
The past few days were extremely hard in the mountains. The cold was like no other experience I have had, and Mera Peak was extremely tough on me! The image below is exhausted me, trying to make it to the most difficult peak I have encountered. I have climbed so many high altitude peaks all over the world: Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, and more! None were so challenging and cold. At times on my attempts to get to the summit of Mera, I couldn’t feel my fingers and thought I would pass out. Mera just didn’t let me climb her this past week. Nevertheless, I am going to the Everest Base Camp today and will continue my preparations for the Mount Everest climb.
The hottest market update is First Republic Bank’s bankruptcy and JPMorgan’s takeover. This is the third major bank that has gone under in the last two months and it is definitely putting pressure on the Fed. As Ardi mentioned last week, banking is about trust and confidence. As soon as First Republic announced more than $100 billion in losses last week, people lost their trust in the bank, withdrew their money, and the rest is history. How do you think this is going to impact the market? How do you think the Fed will react to the failure of a third bank?
Today, Thor and Brian created a recap video and talked about patience and how patience is a position! In trading, you need to be patient and wait for the right setup. Like I’ve said before, not taking a trade can be the best thing you can do sometimes and waiting should be a common part of your trading. This is ironic for me as hiking takes a lot of patience as well. I have to focus on each step and the process as I climb a mountain. Make sure to watch today’s recap and ask your questions on YouTube!
