    I don't know about you. For me, every day before the marke opens, I think it is gonna be an exciting big day for me to make a home run. But as the day progresses, I feel boring and boring. Finally, I got upset for the fact that I wasted another day of my life in the market. Why wouldn't I?

  2. can be directly correlated to $$$ being extracted by the trader!!:cool:
  3. Trade what you see and not what you expect.

    Expecting home runs will cause you to strike out more often than not...giving you a very low batting average...

    so low...you may get sent back to Triple A ball.

    In fact...the manager wants to see you about your attitude and he saids to bring the lock to your locker :cool:

  4. i felt the same way yesterday...

    those days are just traps for doing something stupid...

    i did something stupid around lunchtime, then i realized what i did and took it off, then i did something stupid again right before the market closed and NOW i have something to do today...yippee...

    sometimes peace and quiet is underrated...

    When I am bored, I either walk away from the computer terminal for few hours or short some deep out of the money options.



  6. Sounds like a song by Frank and Nancy Sinatra, as paraphrased by Weird Al Yankovic.
  7. dude, you've had some of the quirkiest statements on this board. :p

    and why do you have a new name with a 2 at the end? that alone is pretty humorous. :p

  8. cheeks


    I said that quite a few times lately.
  9. You did. Stop wasting your time feeling dependent on this market. It isn't going to start being any nicer to you than it has been until now.

    Check out the online casinos. You don't have to wait for 9:30am-4:00pm to play them, they're open 24 hours a day 7 days a week. And you have the opportunity to make some actual money there, especially with the discipline you've developed trying to hit home runs in this game where they won't even let you get up to bat. (No, don't play the dumb-luck games like the slot machines. Play the strategic games where you can give yourself an edge)
  10. If you're really smart , you can make money betting the horses.

    Don't confuse the kind of pea brain it takes to make a few bucks trading stocks though, horseplaying for profit requires actual intellect.
