Was reading a google options thread just now, and it reminded me of something: there's a few trades out there that would really satisfy my ego and make me feel like the man. Getting 20 or 30 points out of Apple long would be one. Shorting google from current levels down a few hundred points would give me a thrill. Too bad the company has strong fundamentals; not a great trade. A bidu short might work a little better, but again, too much momentum right now. Too many companies with billions in market cap and nil revenues. Also would like to go long on a ten day limit up move on some soft grains... And capturing a $7.00 move in natural gas as hurricanes struck would've been quite a feat. one last one: short jpy this past entire year while using leveraged usd $$ to buy something high yield that appreciated. One can dream, can't he? The idea partially comes out of revenge for failed trades in the past, too. some are trades and opportunities that originally infatuated me with trading.
