You didn't make anything today. You are long from when? MTGE has been to 23.95 days ago. You are down from there. You mean you've regained ground you lost. Since Reik is in then out again he makes actual gains.
P.S. There are many reasons not to be in a roth. What if a don't want to wait 30 years to enjoy the money I'm making(just to keep the goverment from taking a portion). What if I inherit a large sum of money and can't put it in an IRA.
