    I know that you're supposed to control your emoticons while trading, but the past few weeks have been extraordinary - I would imagine for many traders - so here goes:

    :( :mad: :eek: :) :p :D :cool: :mad: :) :confused:

    Or how I turned a large loss into a large profit into a small profit.

    It's funny, I wasn't very stressed during the loss period. I guess that's experience. But as soon as the trade approached BE, then profit, things got very stressful with renewed hedging operations and the temptation to overhedge or close.

    Letting profits run can be difficult.

    I think that you need to petition ET for a longer list of emoticons.

    That way, you'll be able to express yourself better

    :D :p :)

    :D Yes, I need one for quiet desperation and one for subdued euphoria.

    I need to learn technical analysis of emoticon sequences.
