we shorts are getting reamed....come on. there is a 'gentleman's/woman's' code for sportsmanship. Longs deserve a congrats here...they took a chunk of $ back from us. being cagey or defensive is unbecoming. so 'congrats'. no...seriously!
...now, let us also admit that $ doesn't put us anywhere near a 'total' loss but baggies should also not claim a cumulative gain over 'total' bagholding duration. is that fair?
question now is, is this a cluck, cluck moment? and if you think so...what are you doing about it on a day like today? Me? You know I'm as 'lazy' as oink, but Benjamin should be sent out into the thunder storm. he'll either die or...discover electricity. ;-O
I feel bad since you are in denial. The only thing worse than being in denial is losing $ because of being in denial. The market has lost only 3.6% (Dow) and the pullback is just begun. The shorts have been quiet this week.
