what a roll.
ok, recall in january when i said to get short going into fed minutes,
and fed tittie twist tanked market hard and into close and gap down selldown next day.
aapl tossed out 14x gain on that one.
anyways, come feb, and fed minutes replay,
and i got puts going into feb fed minutes,
and market instantly tanked into close with a gap down selldown next day.
a prefect replay, and spy puts tossed out 14x gain.
so, that guy got that move along with me.
then he flipped over at retet of 150 pivot,
and rode it back up.
and then, sold on the big gap up full moon monday and got puts,
and sold back down hard.
flipped over to calls at the retest of 149 next day, the pc retest i spoke of.
and then, rode it back up and didn't panic and got the V snapback rally.
all the way back to retest monday peak and set a V snapback.
and flipped back to puts at that sig resistance and got the instant fold over and didnt jump the gun like me and held thru close and held over and got the gap down close out today,
and yep, flipped back over early today and still in calls and looking for more.
he certainly held on better than i did and captured the full moves.
my big recurring prob is i dart in and out and repeatedly close out too early.
i tag the pivots just right, i bang it good but i fall all myself to close out way too early.
and that led to a great deal of angst at times too.
he did good.
he's in a real good zone. dialed in.
i was in a real good zone to start the year and all of jan and most of feb but got a bit scraggly couple weeks ago with a series of flats and whacks and felt out of sorts of late.
and twice now i've had prime highside puts on monday full moon and yesterday and fell all over myself to close out just before monster eod waterfalls.
that tends to burn.
Sounds like this fellow trader picked the tops and bottoms perfectly. Did he take your class on paper trading?
