The RO Report, "Size" Edition

I don't have too much to say tonight, cos my brain is fried. The last few days I've really stepped up my position sizes and I feel exhausted.

The RO kicked ass without me. But as long as I don't blow myself up first, I don't think I'm too far away from getting back into the mix with these bitches.

Anyway, out of 30 traders today, 26 were gross positive or 87%. 15 traders made over $1,000 gross with 6 traders making over $10,000 gross. 1 trader lost over $1,000 gross. I was #21 of 30, disappointing.

"Lucky Pierre" - Trader A, $50,278 on 1.1 million shares traded.

2. Trader B, $30,120 on 1.3 million shares traded.
3. Trader C, $21, 135 on 1.2 million shares traded.
4. Trader H*, $17,794 on 21,600 shares traded.
5. Trader P, $11,794 on 223k shares traded.

"Chambermaid" - Trader &, -$1,197 on 87,800 shares traded.

2. Trader M*, -$711 on 0 shares traded.
3. Trader 4*, -$472 on 0 shares traded.
4. Trader T, -$403 on 2,100 shares traded.
5. Trader Y, $28 on 15,800 shares traded.

DT I had my worst trading day ever trying to get short the banks it then turned into longs and then I was just mentally fucked the rest of the day... What were you guys hittin????? I missed that damn AZO move down!

Sorry Sang, I had a tough one myself despite being gross positive.

As far as I know, no one was trading the AZO. Guys seem more into catching broad market moves right now than focusing on the individual anomolies.

Look, just join the RO and you'll have all the answers. ;)

Hang tough dt. Its a good thing overall that you are stepping up the size. When you hit your stride you will do better then ever. Thats what i meant awhile ago when i was being critical of you saying you didnt make/lose enough. When you have a good day, you will kill it and make up for any previous losses. Almost forgot, eat shit you commie.

Ha!

Yeah well, yesterday I traded over 100k SPY alone. Today, I traded 300k shares spread over a bunch of names and 5k positions have suddenly become rather common for me.

Like I said, if I don't smoke myself first, I could end up making a little money.
