Red Hot Chili Peppers, "Hump de Bump"

I like a lot of the Chili Peppers early stuff. But this song is disgraceful. The vid is decent though.

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.


This day is not starting out well...


UPDATE: Tatsoi is a tasty green.
