Glad To Be Back On The Road!
One of my resolutions was to work smarter and not harder, which meant getting off of my dedicated run. 3.5 months of making a 45 mile run 3 times a day was getting old. So I'm back to running the southern states, hauling just one or two loads a day over a much longer distance. It's less wear and tear on my body, but more on my truck. The truck can be replaced!
This week the freight is still moving a little slow, but I still managed to get a few good loads, although somewhat local. So far this week I've had two loads from Zwolle, La to Natchitoches, La. From there I picked up a load in Woodworth, La to Elberta, Al. Then I got a load in Fulton, Al to Lena, La. Yesterday I picked up one in Chopin, La to Newton, Ms and reloaded right in the same spot going straight back to Chopin.
Well, that's what's happening in my world today. As i stated in the blog title I'll be giving occasional stock suggestions to my trading friends, so here is my first suggestion. This morning I'm long on CHK. Do your own research before buying.
In the Forex I'm short AUD/CAD on the highs.
Have a great day folks!
