Blogger "Death-Match"

POST BUMP

Today over at Wallsteak, I challenged "Ragin Cajun" to a "deathmatch."

I know, I know... that's like "challenging" George Bush to an IQ test or "challenging" Dick Cheney to a personality test, but still, I thought it'd be fun.

And, I feel bad for the guy. He lives in New Orleans, probably in a trailer somewhere, (let's face it) and no one visits his blog.

So here's the deal. I short JRJC today at $42.03 and he got long at $39.65.



In the comments section, place your bets (in terms of "R" of course) on who you think will win.

The contest is over tomorrow.

UPDATE: I've formed a quick poll on the subject. Voting closes at the end of the trading day tomorrow, so go vote!

FRIDAY PRE-OPEN UPDATE: Looks to be gapping higher... over $42... DAMN YOU RAGIN! We'll see what happens into the close, but with the futures up 12 pre-market, I'm not feeling too good. We'll see.

Don't kick me out of the VO, DT for what I'm about to say. I'll bet on Ragin.

Looking at the daily chart, the stock closed down but on lighter volume. If there is good news out tomorrow it could pop. That's my 2 cents.

Ragin' Cajun said...

Keep betting against JRJC, next thing you know your homeless and begging for an R.

lol. Good stuff DT.

OBAT,

I know where you live there is no ice, but still, you're on thin ice...

Looks like a bullish chart and traders love to run this one up, but I think it will sag tomorrow.

How about if it closes right at the open price? Is there a sudden death round? How about a duel between DT/RC?

Dinosaur Trader said...

We haven't discussed this... but if it closes where it opens, I win.

There, that was easy!

This blogger death match stuff sounds cool. We should set up a chat room, like we are all playing HALO with headsets, except we are all trading the same stock,,like GOOG or AAPL, and then we can curse at each other on every tick movement. Fire away another 100 shares long,,,,,then bam,,DT fires back with a 800 share short,,,seconds later AAPL drops 10 cents,,,,HPT curses at screen and DT laughs on other end........

I bet JRJC goes up with the rising tide. DT, you have a good entry though so it's going to be close on R's. And we all know R's are better than zzzzzzzzzz's. Have fun. I'll be heading to Yosemite tomorrow.

HPT,

If I wasn't so lazy and better connected, I would try and make something like that into a TV show. Sounds like fun...

Maria Bartiromo probably reads this blog daily though... I expect her to steal the idea without giving us any credit.

My money is on DT. Good luck to Cajun though. Too bad you won't both make money.

Dinosaur Trader said...

I've divided the Southerners....

Yessss!

Blue,

I wanna go to Yosemite!!!!! Take me with!

Ragin' Cajun said...

Congrats on the victory! At least we both made some money, so it ended well.

I'm done for the day/week.

Have a good one DT.

Ragin' Cajun said...

It looks like I caught my 2nd wind!

Woodshedder said...

And DT takes the lead with a fake left, fake right, and then offers Ragin' a knee to the groin.

Dinosaur Trader said...

Lights out for Ragin.

Good news though that he sold and made some money. I'm still short. Depending on volume, I may cover soon... not liking the lower volume on the sell off.
