  1. Big down day today - anyone got any good short stock stories?

    VIX up to 15.87!!!! That's a HUGE 42% change in 1 day!

  2. Amnesiac


    I got one:

    Today happens to be the day where I'm transferring my funds to another account. This means I haven't been able to trade today and will probably not before thursday.

    At first I kept thinking about all the opportunities I'm missing today.

    But then I realized, that this might be the best thing that could have happened. I probably avoided a huge loss today, which I'm sure would have occured while trying to pick the bottom.

    The next days are going to be very interesting though - and that's when I'll be able to trade again.
  3. DOW -329pts, what else can you ask for ? :p Wish l had just done options not futures :mad: Yes don't calculate it for me.
  4. i shorted ym at the open for 4 ticks....

    wish I just held for the day....

  5. Its now DOW -432pts, if l had less responsibilities l would have done proper plunging :D
