Virtual Office, $203. SPY, -0.72, $140.79.

Timmay, $353 on 3000 shares traded.
OBAT, $162 on 6800 shares traded.
Denarii, $12 on 2400 shares traded.
Retardo, nada.
Me, -$324 on 20,200 shares traded.


The market had no volume today... none. We barely crested the 1.1 billion share mark. That's really hard to believe. If you're a bull, it's great news, since we were down almost 100 points on the Dow. But with volume like that, it's actually very healthy looking. It was the lowest volume day of the YEAR.

Anyway, all I did today was trade oil and gas stocks. Oil is ripping again... commodities are ripping again... frankly, I'm sick of these stocks. I have a really bad feeling the the market is going to suck, for the next 10 years.

The VO is dying of mediocrity. Later this week, I will introduce two new members. I'm pretty sure that they will be mediocre as well. It's just the way things are right now. In fact, I may close the fucking VO because it's even beginning to bore the hell out of me.

Fuck. Developing...

So, you advertise for new employees for the VO and then, before they even start work, you announce their possible layoff?

You're one harsh surfer dude! :)

DT, say it ain't so!

Think of the glory you'll receive when you regain your mastery and get some pwnage back. The VO is motivating me to get my own day trading in order so I can compete properly.

I agree with tyro, it is motivating those of us who are just starting, and its highly appriciated that you guys are around posting your life trading stocks on the internet.

DT,
I like the VO. It helps me gauge how tough of a day it was out there and it's always interesting to see how the different styles of trading realize into earnings. I know it takes work to keep up but I check it everyday. Keep it going bro!!

You know I gotta add my two cents on this one DT... I think everyone is trying hard to figure out this fucking market especially since I think all of us here have been pretty bearish and everyday we see this market going up and up. Because of this perspective I def. have not capitalized on a lot of the moves out here. In fact I'm gettin banged on a lot cause I'm always looking to short shit... I haven't updated my damn blog in a while either just haven't been in the mood to talk about how much I'm sucking! But but but through all this shit I know damn well once I get my shit together I'ma fuck this market up when that happens I dunno but damnit I'ma fuck it up and fuck it up good. On a side note Evo had a killer idea by bouncing at like 11 everyday and saying fuck you to the market I mean the afternoons have been disastrous for most traders.... No luv in the afternoons so many games to get chopped up in and that usually takes all yeo profits! It's been happening to me every fucking day. So DT man you know you gotta do it look at all the people you got coming here everyday to see how much we suck. Once we get this they gonna b right here nobody going nowhere. As for the VO boredom I'ma bring the pizzzazzz back up into this shit don't you worry haha..

DT,

VO is a good idea. If you don't want the hassle, I could write some code to automatically update it for you.

Jorge said...

Aww sweet. If I'm one of those two new members, I'm gonna be mediocre! That's a hell of a lot better than being a complete failure the past few months! Woo!

swift_trader said...
