Panda Bear, "Take Pills"

One of my favorite songs off of this awesome album.

The RO Report, "Poll" Edition

This not having the software thing is starting to suck a lot. Also, my page seems to be taking a very long time to load.

So please answer this quick question before you go on to read the numbers.

Is this site loading slow (i.e. taking longer than 10 seconds or so?) on your comp? Don't answer if you don't have a cable modem or other high speed connection. If you're using dialup, your opinion is irrelevant... Okay, go click that little button on the right... it'll take less than a second. Thanks.

UPDATE: Trader A has come through... I will have a legit RO report up in a couple of hours. I have to split for awhile...


Okay, it feels good to put a little more meat on these numbers. I know I've been a bit out of it around here lately, but that's been because of some bad trading and no RO software to keep me abreast of what's going on intraday with the office.

I twit midday that it was all about IYR again(meanwhile, you like my end of day SRS swing pickup yesterday?) It seems that the IYR is either leading the market up or taking it down... just pick your day. Today it led down but not without an afternoon freak-out that left some of the RO members in tatters.

Anyway, out of 31 traders today, 21 were gross positive or 68%. 9 traders made over $1,000 gross and 4 traders lost over $1,000 gross. Mediocre. I was #10 of 31.

"Lucky Pierre" - Trader N, $5,030 on 131k shares traded.

2. Trader C, $4,107 on 177k shares traded.
3. Trader 10*, $4,063 on 0 shares traded.
4. Trader D, $3,604 on 163k shares traded.
5. Trader F, $3,585 on 154k shares traded.

"Chambermaid" - Trader A, -$5,048 on 431k shares traded.

2. Trader Z, -$3,006 on 137k shares traded.
3. Trader 9*, -$1,351 on 2,300 shares traded.
4. Trader E, -$1,291 on 33,400 shares traded.
5. Trader M*, -$855 on 0 shares traded.

The E-Trade Book Commercial

Back when even the commercials on CNBC were entertaining... now it's all a big party of suck over there.
