      • Remember as per GLAD/3% Rules, buy all Spos which are dated less than the next (X-6), which tomorrow qualifies(bad sentence structure...short tomorrow but allow equal additional powder for X+9, + one more 3% entry this run....that is my best guess.

        NOW HERE IS REAL AND PRESENT DANGER ...sorry for yelling but it is at this juncture where I lost all of my first portfolio, in the early 1990s I had just come off my first triple banger where I tripled my portfolio in the first month of trading. I was going to quit being a doctor and trade only. I thought I had it all figured out and wondered why everyone didn't quit their day jobs and trade like me.

        Its after a winning month like the one we just had where the human psyche wants to triple down and risk way too much on the next trade because you are coming off of the euphoria of a win. PLEASE do not do this. Slap yourself and don't bet more than normal on the SPO. Each new trade is unique and can go any which way, including down. Europe might blow up , N.Korea might launch. or ??? and your big bet is toast.

        Trust me I know this to be true. I have learned to bet small, and then when the trade goes against me I feel such a sense of relief at losing "small" I get even more excited than winning big(well close...;-))

        I allow 18,000 shares for the month on FSC. So I will personally risk 6,000 shares tomorrow and keep 6k for X+9 and 6k for a 3%. I will go up to 24k if we have another 3% but that is my limit.

        I will do the same for each of the rest of the SS except MAIN, which I allow 2k/2k and 2k. Folks have asked how they can bet more and not hold so much in reserve. My


        Best to all...and remember if you trade smart, you don't need luck...;-)


      • Price is to high A/H, it will be $10.70 or lower at the close tomorrow.
