Virtual Office, $10,528. Dow, +152.17, 13656.47.

Misstrade, $6780 on 5000 shares traded.
Me, $1356 on 32,000 shares traded.
HPT, $1300 on 104 contracts.
OBAT, $815 on 3600 shares traded.
Bubs, $277 on 1800 shares traded.
Denarii, no stock trades.
Evolution, on vacation.


Needless to say, if you left in the middle of the day to go buy some new surf gear and get a drink with a friend, as a certain somebody I know did, you made a really, really stupid decision.

This market is gangbusters for traders.

Like I said in my daily post yesterday, lose the story. Yes it's August, yes it's summer, but the time to trade is NOW. People will repeat this crap like broken records, that it's the summer and thus "slow" and trade is "thin" but the fact is that stocks are simply all over the map right now.

The amount of opportunity out there is simply staggering.

Keep trading. This is a stock traders market. See you tomorrow.

I voted for Erin. Maria has a whinny voice and is full of herself. Maria was cool back in the day. What happened to Liz, I heard she went to FOX?

I agree, this market is excellent for day trading, as long as you know how to manage risk.

HPT,

Amazing how smoked Maria is getting. I mean, I've never liked Maria because she's humorless however I didn't know the feeling was so universal.

I'll have to spam the CNBC site with this poll if it keeps up at this pace. It could be useful information for them! :)
