Virtual Office, -$6800. Dow, +57.88, 13,363.35.

Akalawoo, $153 on 4 contracts traded.
Tapeworm, $102 on 4 contracts traded.
Bubs, $90 on 1000 shares traded.
Denarii, still on a beach.
Misstrade, melting his brain watching football.
OBAT, -$3 on 7400 shares traded.
Evolution, -$255 on 46,200 shares traded.
Me, -$887 on 26,600 shares traded.
HPT, -$6000 on an unspecified number of contracts.

Okay, an Options trader and a Futures trader led the VO today... that's like having a carny in the White House. Oh wait....

And I'm not going to go right out and say that Akalawoo is bad luck or anything but on his first day in the VO he ends up on top and nearly everyone else gets blown to bits.

I'll be watching you Akalawoo... don't fuck with my VO.

Anyway, all joking aside, Bubs wrote me that he was going back to sleep in the middle of the day. That was a pretty smart thing to do but my guess is that he was hungover so really, it's a wash.

The volume today, 1,280,482,000 is simply pathetic. OBAT is taking another vacation... I mean, seriously... this is no good.

Sadly, I think my prediction of yesterday may be spot on. The market will suck until we get the Fed meeting out of the way on the 18th.

Don't hate me because I'm smart.

Lawrence (aka. "Akalawoo),

For now I'll blame the low volume in the market. :)

Makes it tough to trade...

I wish I was hungover. Decided to start working out again earlier this week, I'm so sore I can barely move. On top of that came down with a cold, I'm basically useless for a couple of days.

I really need to get back to the city...

That's rough, Bubs.

I hadn't done any physical activity for like, a decade before I started surfing again. Those first few weeks were very painful.
