Nirvana, "In Bloom"

I may have a daily post up later... but in case I don't get to it.

Virtual Office, -$791. SPX, -27.30, 1335.30.

Ainkurn, $330 on 550 shares traded.
Denarii, $126 on 2400 shares traded.
Retardo, $90 on 5 contracts traded.
Timmay, no trades.
OBAT, -$139 on 7400 shares traded.
Sanglucci, -$167 on 3200 shares traded.
Me, -$277 on 32,000 shares traded.
Dehtrader, -$754 on 5874 shares traded.

The big news today is that Retardo finally made a trade. I want to be the first to congratulate him... I know it can be hard to pull the trigger. Equally impressive was the spirited performance by Ainkurn. Give the kid some credit, he's from Mississippi, so you know what kind of gene pool he's dealing with.

I'm sure his brain hurts, thank god it's Friday, huh?

In other VO news, we suck.

Even with the GE news, volume blew. I'm starting to get a bad feeling that even earnings season will be lame... what happened to the volume? the volatility? the fear and greed? These are the things that make trading fun.

Anyway, at least I'm getting my cash from the stimulus package... perhaps I'll throw a poll up so you people can help me decide how to spend my treasure.

My Day Has Been Far Too Exciting...

On a day where I should be taking it easy, I jumped into the market this morning like a drunk guy off a dock.

Perhaps it was because I learned that I had qualified for President Bush's stimulus package and I felt like I had some green to burn.

I tell you... that was some bittersweet news. I almost feel like I should appreciate him for a day or something.... nah, fuck it. Worst president ever.

Anyway, I was down $700 early due to an ill conceived short in MS (before it tanked) and another ill conceived short in ACI.

I made it all back with a sweet MON long.

Let's see how we end.

Bears Last Chance?

If GE doesn't take the market down, what will?
