Belle & Sebastian, "Dirty Dream Number 2"

Great lyrics, one of my favorite B&S songs. Thought it appropriate given the "spray" version of the RO.

The RO Report, "Spray" Edition

It's always great when you see a trader who works really hard, have their best day ever. Today, Trader C traded like an absolute lunatic, in a low volume, summer market, and kicked ass.

It wasn't easy... he swung from up $14k, to down $5k (in a matter of 30 minutes) and then back up to close at his highs of the day. In RO parlance, he "sprayed" the office, as in, marked his territory. Told everyone, "don't fuck with me" and made loot.

It was actually a good day for many traders, which I found surprising, and yes, frustrating. Out of 24 traders, 17 were positive, or 71%. 11 traders were up gross $1000 or more. I was number 15 of 24.

To give more depth to the RO, to "round it out" a bit, I've decided to list the top 5 and bottom 5 each day instead of just the top 3. Also, contact me (only serious inquiries.. email under profile) if you're interested in learning more about the RO, as in, joining my company.

Hence, DT is hiring.

Anyway, here's the numbers:

The Top 5:

1. Trader C, $27,077 on 564k shares traded.
2. Trader B, $8,726 on 428k shares traded.
3. Trader D, $7,140 on 143k shares traded.
4. Trader F, $5,720 on 180k shares traded.
5. Trader J, $4,810 on 83k shares traded.

And the bottom:

1. Trader P, -$884 on 108k shares traded.
2. Trader #2, -$710 on 30k shares traded.
3. Trader U, -$387 on 2,400 shares traded.
4. Trader A, -$323 on 310k shares traded.
5. Trader H, -$256 on 11k shares traded.

NOTE: Also, anyone interested in "guest blogging" for the last 2 weeks of August, please email me. I'm taking off.


CNN is covering a window washer platform collapse at a Florida hotel.

The only thing that would make this legitimate news is if Brangelina's baby was somehow on that platform.
