I was confused thanks for clearing that up. I
bailed today at $87 but I ain't makin the money Falcon
makes. I guess I'm a little trigger shy of the market in
general. One day it's the DOW the Next the NASD. I guess
after the big drop I just want some cash free just in
case. I hope things solidify but if not then these 10%
swings over a few days can be worth a fortune. MSFT
seems to be a waning issue but inflation and peoples
strange reaction to is the wildcard. Have a good an
peaceful weekend all.

I do not find your trading strategy insulting. I
do the same type of trading with only some
I find it assinine when others, not you, and not
necessarily ISSX board poster, say "oh I shorted at the days
high" or shorted at the days high. Like I sold ISSX at
141 or some such idocy. When I read your note that
you sold at 83, I immediately concluded, brashly and
wrongly that you were posting crap.
Are you really an Atlanta Falcon cheerleader like
someone suggested here? If so, I truely take my words
...to speak of "mistakes" when you're trading a
good stock. ISSX could easily take off from here, or
at any other time. So is it a "mistake" to have sold
it? If that's the thinking, then the trader is in for
a lot of woe...he will never be "right."
think a trader should simply be in it for the money,
and not to be "right." Falcon, you just made a good
trade. You made money. You won your game. But the minute
you feel the need to be right...you will
It doesn't matter what the stock does tomorrow. You
won, and the victory can't be taken away from you.
Tomorrow you can start a new game, either with ISSX or
with another stock. I'd say you were doing pretty
If there is a "mistake" to be made in this game, I
think it's this need to be "right."
I do not claim to be a guru. I am just happy to
make some money on ISSX. I think ISSX is a great
company with outstanding management and products. As a
result, I am willing to bet my hard earn money on
I am basically a trader that uses technical
analysis on fundamentally sound companies for entry and
exit points. $83 was a good exit point as far as I was
Can ISSX trade much higher tomorrow? Of
course...However my trading strategy works for me. If you are long
and willing to hold ISSX for the long-term actually I
think you will do quite well.
We both can be
successful owing ISSX using different strategies. I have
never shorted ISSX because I believe this an
outstanding company althought it probably got ahead of itself
when it traded in the high $130's.
Best of luck
with your ISSX position. I am sure I will buy ISSX
again. At what price? not sure...but if we dip to
$76-$76 1/2 tomorrow I will be long ISSX again.
Why do you find my strategy so insulting?...I am up
over $45K trading ISSX and my first purchases were at
$98 and $105 so I guess trading ISSX versus holding
the stock has worked for me at least
Moreover, I make plenty of mistakes. Maybe selling ISSX at
$83 was a mistake...It will not be the first one or
the last one that I promise you.
By the way I
am not 14...I am 36...Pauly sorry to disappoint but
I am a He not a She. The handle is confusing...long
Best wishes to you architect. Always keep an open
mind. Sometimes you might learn something worthwhile.
If ISSX moves much higher from here without dipping
below $83...well my congrats to you.
For Falcon's sake, I hope for another downward headfake on Friday (closing up +6 after the headfake of course).
I was wrong - and this is not a garbage board. Sorry about that.
14 huh? I agree that all should call off the dogs
on ol' Falcon ( out of respect ), but we all assume
we are dealing with adults here who can take the
rough stuff ( not too rough, tho' ). Cutting down on
the play by play might help, but I already got told
for mentioning that before. ;-)
