Virtual Office, $5081. Dow -3.90, 13309.07.

Misstrade, $3358 on 10,900 shares traded.
Me, $1231 on 72,200 shares traded.
NYSE Scalper, $317 on 31,600 shares traded.
One Bad-Ass Trader, $184 on 10,000 shares traded.
EvolutionTrader, $76 on 56,000 shares traded.
Denarii, -$85 on 2000 shares traded.

Besides Misstrade, who, lets be honest now, seems to be a bit of a freak, things were somewhat quiet today in the VO. Although, I'll give myself some props for having a strong bounce day. I had a great morning and then probably gave at least half of my day back... in fact, I wouldn't be surprised if many traders were like me today, made early and then gave back.

This market is unbelievable... you just can't get it down!

Tomorrow is Fed day. Probably won't be interesting at all, but still, you have to watch... just in case! Man could this market use something to surprise it... one way or the other.

DT- good to see you green at the top of the list.

I've been slowly but surely dipping my feet in the water again, and had a pretty good day today.

I will be asking to join the VO again at some point. Maybe then you can make a swingtrade VO? Since I don't book gains everyday, maybe it would be more fair to have me with others who post unrealized and realized gains on their swings?

I'm loathe to do more work to be honest... 2 VOs? Not for me.

Why not just update me with your trades when they are realized? That's when they count. If you only are booking one or two a week then maybe it's not really worth it, but as long as you are trading a couple of swings a day, I don't think it's a problem and I'd love to have you in the VO again.

Lemme know. Feel free to just email me directly.
