The RO Report, "Christmas Party" Edition

Post will be late.

Quick question though... how many of you ate it on that RIG MOC?

RIG blows. Quite a number of traders were mauled by this thing late in the day, but despite that, the RO had a decent day. I'm just getting to the numbers.

First, some blog news. Look for the Best Stock Market Blog Posts of 2008 to be published here on the 29th. Next week I won't be blogging much. However, I will spend the time preparing solid posts for the beginning of the year.

Out of 27 traders today, 16 finished gross positive, or 59%. 10 traders made over $1,000 gross and 4 lost over $1,000 gross. I was #12 of 27. Not bad considering that I'm already mentally on holiday. Also, I've surfed 4 out of the last 6 days. That tends to dampen my ambition a bit...

"Lucky Pierre" - Trader B, $12,421 on 340k shares traded.

2. Trader Z, $7,828 on 67,800 shares traded.
3. Trader J, $5,080 on 70,200 shares traded.
4. Trader 10*, $4,511 on 1,400 shares traded.
5. Trader V, $3,871 on 52,200 shares traded.

"Chambermaid" - Trader 9*, -$7,156 on 200 shares traded.

2. Trader D, -$4,319 on 287,000 shares traded.
3. Trader 6*, -$2,548 on 0 shares traded.
4. Trader O, -$1,062 on 31,400 shares traded.
5. Trader M*, -$864 on 0 shares traded.

Didn't realize it was departing the S&P 500. Stopped out of my initial position... smoked on a smaller order for the closing print.

Yeah, that was the thing... normally additions and deletions don't work great. What made it worse was the way it "teased" in after hours trade up over $50... to then close below $48 was rough.
