Sad doesn't even begin to describe it... not only did I not believe in this sham bull market (yes I will acknowledge it as a bull market, but it is also a bubble/fraud) but I lost so much money shorting since Dow 9,500 that I need a 40% gain just to make those losses back.
I am sorry to hear. After Goldman released earnings in July 2009 which carried the dow from 8,000 to 9,000 (I was in FAZ, lost $30K, yikes!)... I knew this market is rigged to steal peoples money. Think of the stock market as a stealth tax that emits the most pain. Most shorts have been bankrupted. I watched this on the FAZ board... Now watch this on the EDZ board. I have been warning people for months when the Dow was 10,000 that this was going to 11,000 and higher. This advice has only been met with hate, anger, and scorn. This market is rigged, and will go higher until it has taken everyone's money. Hey, remember, money comes and goes. It will come back! Buy metal - gold/silver - instead. It cant evaporate like stocks!
