The RO Report, "Solid Rebound" Edition

Man today's rally made me feel good. Sure, we got back less than half what we lost yesterday, but the fact that we rallied, tested "unched," and then had the power to go to new highs speaks of a new-found confidence exhibited by the bulls.

Also, volume was impressive, beating yesterday's total.

I'm a little busy tonight, so let's just get to the numbers...

Out of 24 traders today, 19 finished gross positive, or 79%. 12 traders made over $1,000 gross while 2 traders lost over $1,000 gross. Good numbers. The Bosses came roaring back today. I was #9 of 24, happy enough, but feeling as if I need to step up my game.

"Lucky Pierre" - Trader Z, $30,856 on 456k shares traded.

2. Trader A,
$29,259 on 381k shares traded.
3. Trader D,
$22,117 on 207k shares traded.
4. Trader C,
$17,627 on 251k shares traded.
5. Trader P,
$17,173 on 349k shares traded.

"Chambermaid" - Trader E, -$5,479 on 68,800 shares traded.

2. Trader J,
-$1,747 on 70,800 shares traded.
3. Trader 3,
-$575 on 10,000 shares traded.
4. Trader H*,
-$520 on 2,100 shares traded.
5. Trader N,
-$102 on 1,800 shares traded.

Here is today's "heatmap."

From your lips to Mother Market's ears.

But it'd be great if after that rally we dropped 80%, no?

Man, this guy "Lucky Pierre" seems to be the best performer in your office.

Here is an idea: don't trade, just look over his shoulder and enter the same positions.

And also do the Costanza on Chambermaid's trades.

What would this be called then? Double Pierre, aka DP? ;D

Trader Z is kind of a genius. His risk/reward compared to the other top traders is very good. Also his "play" aka how he makes loot is amazingly consistent. The last two days he has been great to watch.

If by "genius" you mean "hot, willing and well lubed" then I agree.

But in all seriousness, either following one trader's every move or going against (Costanza style) would be very difficult with such active traders.

It's much easier to try and copy "the Fly." However, that'd just get you smoked despite his claims of having a time machine...
