The RO Report, "No One Was Saved" Edition

I don't look at my P&L while I trade. However, from the very first today, the day was bad for me. I fought the market ALL DAY LONG. And of course, I lost. At 3:15 I finally switched up my game, got short, and made some money back, but it was an expensive lesson. In short, I was swinging for a homerun today. Time to get back to hitting singles.

Amazingly, I'm only the #5 "Manservant" today. I deserved to be #1 with my stupidity.

I blame Sarah Palin. Fuck her in advance for "winning" the debate tonight.

Anyway, it's late. For two days in a row, the RO is in the red. Some of the strategies that were working 2 weeks ago are failing. It wasn't a bad day for everyone in the RO, but for those who had a bad day, they had really bad days.

Out of 21 traders today, 12 were positive, or 57%. I was number 17 of 21, or, completely smoked. Since the office as a whole was red, the "Manservants" are on top again.

Here are today's Manservants:

1. Trader D, -$57,280 on 1.1 million shares traded.
2. Trader B, -$31,159 on 1.1 million shares traded.
3. Trader H, -$20,978 on 4,500 shares traded.
4. Trader G, -$4,887 on 151k shares traded.
5. Trader S, -$4,243 on 104k shares traded.

And the Bosses:

1. Trader C, $29,174 on 554k shares traded.
2. Trader Z, $9,187 on 305k shares traded.
3. Trader F, $7,446 on 145k shares traded.
4. Trader K, $2,858 on 277k shares traded.
5. Trader J, $1,871 on 111k shares traded.

It IS her fault.

As she just said:

"There is a toxic mess on main street that is affecting Wall Street"

That's it everyone!! It is not our fault it is main street's fault!!

Thanks Sarah.

This is depressing.

I hate this day.

It'd be nice if they made her answer a question.


Jd said...

Answer a question? That would be unfair, don't pick on her.

I mean, this would be hilarious, amazing and hilarious... if it were SNL.

I am stunned that she could be President if McCain dies, and that dude looks old, the years have not been kind.

She is 100% rhetoric, no logic, no facts. Unfortunately, like that old saying that you can't argue with and idiot because you argue at their level and at their level they win, Bidden can't win this by being logical. He needs to pop his eyes more and throw some common folk references in and some josh darn its and you bet ya's.

And as "Judy" just mentioned...

"How the hell does she smile and talk at the same time?"


Jd said...

Yeah, Jane just asked if she can even see with those fucking bangs.

Dinosaur Trader said...

I'll say this though... she is pretty hot.

I would go drilling with her any day.

Are you all in the same office together are are you all remote? What firm are you all with and where are you located? I'm currently with Assent in NY and have been a prop trader since 01.

Can't stand the way that idiot keeps saying "Eye-Rack". She offends me on every level - especially the size of her ass.

I'm with an Assent office that's based in NYC. However, I don't trade there, I'm remote.
