Heartbroken romantic that I am, I am constantly drawn to both somber and joyful music. The following, to me, is what I expect heaven should sound like. Play it as you round our your trading day.
The Energy Bull Returns

I think I am going to start relying on large oil and gold trades as my principal money maker since the /ES seems to be just smashed to pieces.
Day of wrath, that day
Will dissolve the earth in ashes
As David and the Sibyl bear witness.
What dread there will be
When the Judge shall come
To judge all things strictly.
A trumpet, spreading a wondrous sound
Through the graves of all lands,
Will drive mankind before the throne.
Death and Nature shall be astonished
When all creation rises again
To answer to the Judge.
A book, written in, will be brought forth
In which is contained everything that is,
Out of which the world shall be judged.
When therefore the Judge takes His seat
Whatever is hidden will reveal itself.
Nothing will remain unavenged.
What then shall I say, wretch that I am,
What advocate entreat to speak for me,
When even the righteous may hardly be secure?
