Nice snap back to reality JB. Sometimes it takes an actual trade to realize "Now, what do I want to buy now?"
The cost of the trades is a small price to pay compared to the virtual loss of potential future gains.
Fool as in Motley Fool, no?
"When you make a mistake in the stock market, the only sound thing to do is to correct it. Pride doesn't pay"
The positive gain at the end of the day MAY be reflective of the fact that shorts may not want to hold their positions past the end of the trading day. The pressure and risk of a positive afterhours news release must be oppressive.
As for me, I was true to my word.
Sapro's saprophytes' Coverdells are also looking good.
