the only trade I play is buying puts, and every morning before market opens, I'm eagerly searching for bad news. ... I sincerely feel I'm becoming an evil person, I had hoped market collpase because I'm holding couple hundred various puts. are all the shorts having the same problem here? I lost 40% of my puts value today alone, this seems to ease my guilty feeling a little bit. BTW, don't forget buy some PCLN and VMW Jan. puts.
