My investing success in Q4 has been mixed, to say the least, with the end result being very mediocre. I had some of my best and worst trades in the quarter, and both were documented with posts on this board. The highlight was selling FAZ on Oct. 3 and 4. The biggest bonehead move was buying TVIX just before it broke out of its channel and moved down hard.
Don't get me wrong, John, I admire optimism. I'd like to think that like MJ says, I'm a realist, neither a pessimist or an optimist, but my wife might disagree. Fortunately she doesn't read this board!
