    I was up 4.5% until TODAY. Pretty much flat after today's efforts....just a bit on the positive:(
  6. Down $ 15,000 cold hard cash in the account.

    Though I have 20,000 in written options expiring in 24 days if all goes well.

    Not playing the market, not taking any more risks, staying put, staying clean, till the money managers come back from bongo beating vacations and Idaho fishing trips.

    Should have taken August off?
  7. Lost 4.5% in one day?? Trading a little loose, huh?

    Had 2 trades take a dump on me.....

    Today was definitely a "learning" experience.....

    A: None o'yer f*ckin' bidness.

    However, I was down a little. I've mostly stayed away this month because I know I can't trade when the market's in panic mode - I can only do swing, and swing traders just get killed when the market's all panicky - only really starting to get back in yesterday, on the long side, fortunately. Still only doing a bare fraction of normal, though.
