carrier.....well said. that's why I trade.I usually trade about 75% of my position,and keep some as a 'kicker'. Trading enabled me,today, to re-buy at an acceptable level,since I had plenty cash from recent sales. Remember my recent post? "what bothers me most is the unlimited optimism on this board"? Many stockholders are not capable of making many decisions...They are RIGHT(in their own minds)...THEY BUY AND HOLD,AND NEVER have to make another decision for a long time because THEY ARE RIGHT!! We traders may make 8-12 decisions trades ) a day,frequently on ONE STOCK.
