The RO Report, "Pruned" Edition

My day was hijacked by a crew of tree pruners.

There I was long 5,000 WFC just as it was breaking $20, when I heard a knock down on the door. "Be down in a minute!" I yelled. More knocking. WFC dipped below $20... FUCK! I sold 4000 and answered the door.

A man who couldn't speak English was trying to ask me if he could climb a tree on my property to remove a tree from my neighbor's property. Sure, I said. Knock yourself out. Then, I decided to hire him and his crew to prune a tree on our yard. Back upstairs I cursed as I saw WFC printing $20.20.

After that I basically went on tilt, trading close to 300k shares today and placing more trades than everyone in the RO besides "Trader D" who, as you all know, is a total crackhead. Anyway, I didn't beat commissions... not by a long shot.

It was a mixed day. Out of 32 traders, 20 were gross positive or 64%. 7 traders made over $1,000 gross and 6 lost over $1,000 gross. I was 8 out of 32 but net negative due to my crackheaded tendencies. Not blasted, but not happy either.

"Lucky Pierre" - Trader D, $10,447 on 362k shares traded.

$5,324 on 369k shares traded.
3. Trader H*,
