  1. WORST week in stock market history, yes, but how'd YOU do?

    Take the poll, share the war stories, and shed the tears.
  2. 50 replies would be nice, if I can get them.
  3. maybe you can start with sharing your own week

    I did fine. Of course the more volatility, the better one does, per contract. I trade S&P 500 futures only.
  5. Not my best week or anything but did fine.

    Just had to reduce size to make up for volatility.

    Losses were bigger but so were the winners.

    better than avg, not a killer (for me) or anything.

    i'm awful in panic, and i know that, so i tend to cut back a LOT in those situations.

    I made very little this week.

    In my personal stocks, I liquidated last friday (Right after bailout passed), so I stayed 100% in cash in that account.

    In Eurodollars, I made a good amount at the beginning of the week and almost lost the same amount when the Fed announced the rate cut and then I took the rest of the week off. All in all it was profitable, but could had been VERY profitable.

    To Gaj:
    It seems to me that all depends on how much you trust the trading system you are using.
