What future were YOU looking at?? Everything was selling off into the close, and all indicators were sharply to the downside well into the election... I will never understand buy and holds of ANY Index or ETF... *especially* the DOW or S&P... I sold ALL DIA into strength mid day yesterday, entirely expecting a pullback. I for one am hoping it ALL drops alot lower, so I can buy truckloads on the cheap. Anybody who bought going into any election is a stone cold fool. DIA is for trading ONLY. There is a DIV for sucker bagholders, and you were lucky to get that, but now that's gone too with Nobama raising cap gains taxes. All happyland cushions are now GONE. Adapt or die, get it?
There are only TWO rules on Wall Street:
1) You get what you get.
2) It's ALL an illusion until you *Ring the Register*.
Whiny #$%$ crybabies. Buy and hold is DEAD. Luckily trading this is all you need if you simply have some kind of sense.
