Hey Market Pilot,
The weather is getting nice up here in Washington state; just in time for a long 3 day weekend. While we may not normally think anything of long holidays, sometimes they are for extra special reasons. Reasons we should remember while in our boat, at the BBQ, or watching the kids roll in the grass. This weekend is to remember those who have sacrificed to protect this country and keep our way of life.
Most of my family has served in the Armed Forces. My uncle was in the Navy, my dad and both grandpa’s were in the Air Force. All of them, including myself, are pilots which is why aviation is such a big part of my regular and trading life. They have served our country and helped to protect us. Keeping our society safe and preserving it for future generations.
This idea resonates with me as my family has entrusted me with protecting and growing their finances. In my own little way, I feel as though I am serving and giving back in the way that I can. Much like how they served and gave back in the way they could at the time. I know others out there in the trading world feel the same, as I have had more than one subscriber tell me they have begun to manage their family’s finances. The responsibility can be a bit daunting; knowing that you are the one at the helm making decisions that could put your family in a better or worse financial situation. But those who serve to protect us face daunting situations as well and they pull through; managing to step up to the challenges they face.
I’d like to close on a thankful note. Let us be thankful to those out the past, present, and future who have contributed to our great country. And when trading gets difficult, we lose money, or it feels like we are up against insurmountable odds, let us remember we are choosing to venture into this profession. A profession where we can safely sit at home and provide for our family, knowing that others are looking out for us.
Your Profit Pilot, TG
