Virtual Office, $1459. Dow, +37.06, 13383.84.

Misstrade, $707 on 3000 shares traded.
Dehtrader, $602 on 46,800 shares traded.
Me, $230 on 81,200 shares traded.
One Bad-Ass Trader, $150 on 22,400 shares traded.
Denarii, -$38 on 2000 shares traded.
EvolutionTrader, -$192 on 84,000 shares traded.

I think it's pretty clear from the numbers and share totals that today was a very choppy (and frustrating) day to trade. If I could do it all again I would have stopped trading at 11:00 am. That's what my instincts were telling me and I should have listened.

Anyway, good numbers from Misstrade and Dehtrader and no big blowups. Let's try again tomorrow.

p.s. Maria Bartiromo is annoying as hell.

I hear you on stopping at 11 a.m., Dinosaur Trader. I was up $900 in TNH, set a stop at 79 and watched it pitter out on me, triggering the stop. I had hope for a bigger rebound but it never happened. I netted about $250 today.

Keep up the good work on the blog. It's an enjoyable read and the virtual office is great!

Sorry, not sure how I missed this comment.

TNH was an animal again today but I basically missed out. I sold short near the close and I'm holding a little into the open. I'll be looking to short again should it move over 90. We will see.

Thanks for reading,
