    I have no luck. Congrats longs.

    I chickened out in buying call options yesterday. Had the trade setup, and then chickened out and didn't press the commit to buy button. I've done this in the past and have gotten burned. My view on timing is that you either have luck or some type of inside info. Or maybe you just don't have bad luck like I do.

    • don't beat yourself up...it happens to everyone.......get back in.

    • you confess to insider trading?

      Isn't that illegal?

    • But saying that for jan i am going to buy puts if and when this goes to 1100...I dont think the earnings warrant such a move but since wall street is very bullish about anything with a pulse and decent earnings you have this move!...

      Sentiment: Hold
