EUR/GBP is breaking out to the downside, which is good for me as I am short. This is now my only trade. Corn is breaking downwards but on low volume, and breakouts have not made money in corn for ages. I am waiting to see how the market looks at the close. Treasuries are breaking upward — there may be a trade there.

I have spent most of the day in the company of charts, rather than spending my time trying to read a hundred different things. I always feel so much more in touch when I do that. I have been cutting down the number of sources I read recently and may cut some more. There is no doubt that reading books and reading about other subjects (science, for example) makes one more intelligent, but I am not sure about reading news beyond the minimum required to keep up to date.
