Thursday, "Autumn Leaves Revisted"

The "Trader A" spray pick, in dedication to his brother who would be 16 today.

The RO Report, "Bottom Edition"

Okay, so the title of this report is a little hopeful, but why not be hopeful? We have a week to go before we choose a new President, and McCain or Obama, we'll be in better hands than we are right now. Meanwhile, the stock market has lost a ridiculous amount the last 2 months, but we can still pull a 900 point rally out of our nation's ass... so why not be a little hopeful?

Of course, it always helps the "hope" cause when nearly the entire RO banked good coin.

Before 3:00, I barely traded. I literally slept for less than 3 hours last night. Nerves. I woke up exhausted and thinking I wouldn't trade at all. So I didn't. I spoke with "Trader P" and listened to the guys in the chat. It was almost relaxing to just reside on the sidelines for a day and watch.

At 2pm, the market began a rally. While the RO was largely up, the numbers were relatively small, and I was somewhat surprised that people weren't up more. However, we rallied over 600 points in those last 2 hours and that helped the numbers... a lot. You can imagine how pissed I was at 3pm thinking I missed it all... but fortunately, I hadn't.

Anyway, I'm going to sleep. Here's the numbers... perhaps I'll have more juice for the blog tomorrow. Out of 25 traders today, 23 were gross positive, or 92%. 16 traders finished up over $1,000 gross, while only 2 lost over $1,000 gross. I was #6 of 25, or happy.

Congrats to "Trader A" for the big spray. The musical selection this evening, will be his. Also, congrats to "Trader P" for making back all his losses from last week and for showing real courage.
