here's my call for the day, i'm an idiot and will do nothing about it

  1. Don't short a rally into a terror plot.
     
  2. Oh I tried buying it, that doesn't work. I'm not shorting, I'm just gonna sit here and watch it go down.
     
  3. i deleted the image, sorry. it had my acct# in there, that's probably dumb. it basically said i wanted to be short 11112 in the mini-dow, it has since moved up to my stop so i guess
    i was wrong. trading 11123 now
     
  4. Losing is only part of the game Billy.. Stay in there and may you make many many winning trades in the future.
     
  5. Any kind of terror alert is rally.
     
  6. are they rallying on cheap oil?

    looks like it. what a bunch of lemmings.
     

  7. I'd like to think so but this market is ridiculous, I tried buying breakouts and I get stopped out every frickin time, it just sits there, no volume at all. I hate August, I quit.
     
  8. Martha just called!

    Get long now! ES going up this afternoon. 1270.75
     
  9. if it moves up at all im in.
     
  10. Billy,

    August is the time to fade equity index moves with long options. Market goes up- you buy a put. I find summertime markets to be easy to trade, the problem is I have to make enough money to get me through September.

    I agree though it is quite dull, that is why I have been posting so much.
     

  11. im long from 11136, i'm sure i'll puke it out for a loss
     
  12. Rationalizing is your first mistake. Fighting it is your second.
     

  13. hey hey!! no puking this time, out at 11169.
     
  14. Need some nads, bud. Martha (aka no_pm_please) has a pretty good track record. Still long.
     
  15. still long? that hurts
     
  16. Congrats on the exit. Looks like a B/E trade for me. Stop at 1271.00 or out on close.

    I got the entry, you got the exit and Mr. Ren. called the afternoon.
     
  17. nice entry. my exit was 100% luck, i got out because it got me even for the day, an absolutely pathetic reason to get out of a trade.
