The RO Report, "Surf's Up" Edition

Not really, but nonetheless immediately after the close, I head to catch some waves. Spending all your time in front of screens is not healthy. Sorry for the late post.

Anyway, the market is bipolar. Have you ever hung out with a bipolar person? They suck. One day it's like, "The world is going to end" and you're like, "Cool, this is a person I can chill with." But then the next day, they love everything and they're really annoying. Everything is beautiful, people are great... blah, blah.

However, this bipolar market does suit the RO, which made massive size again today.

I'm shot, so let's just get right to the numbers, shall we? Out of 20 traders today, 17 finished positive, or 85%. I was #11 of 20. 8 traders finished up over $10,000 gross today. Truly amazing.

The top traders in the RO right now are on another level. As "Trader D" pointed out in the comment section yesterday, the swings have been wild. While the top 5 today finished with massive gains, most of them had massive losses at some juncture today also... bipolar indeed. This is a historic trading market. I'm pretty sure this year will be mark the top for many traders and their profits.

Here are today's Bosses:

1. Trader A, $105,473 on 645k shares traded.
2. Trader D, $96,092 on 555k shares traded.
3. Trader B, $93,743 on 982k shares traded.
4. Trader C, $49,939 on 390k shares traded.
5. Trader F, $47,417 on 209k shares traded.

And the Manservants:

1. Trader K, -$11,882 on 179k shares traded.
2. Trader T, -$1,301 on 5,400 shares traded.
3. Trader 3, -$46 on 6,800 shares traded.
4. Trader Q, $406 on 4,600 shares traded.
5. Trader R, $647 on 111k shares traded.

I'm glad your killing it in the markets. I went to my day job and left a lot of potential money on the table. Pretty pissed. But there will always be tomorrow. Thursday is going to be wild.
