  6. volitility is a double edge sword, it's what you make of it.

  7. Today was bad. But I learned a few things.
  8. As a trader, there are far worse things than learning a good lesson from being down. Now you are armed with what NOT to do (or at least an understanding) next time :)

  9. Agreed - the last couple of weeks have been very good - lots of movement in both directions, great trading.
  10. do not forget, 85% of ET posters/repliers lost money tuday with you.
