    I told yall to short at 24.50

    earlier today, and i was immediately met with "moron", and "enjoy your loss", and "i was the worst advice giver and all would do the exact opposite of what I did". well crap, going long at 23.40 instead of shorting at 24.50 on only 1000 shares has cost me $4300. Next time I will listen to myself and take my own advice, instead of what I read on here. OK, now here come the negative comments again.... I dont care if the market is down, what? 1%? 1.25%? there is something wrong wtih dmnd beind down 6% after being up 7% earlier. a 13% drop...

        I didnt have to cover as I never went short. I sold at 24.57 this morning, and then watched as it dropped 5% to 23.40, and thought that was a good entry point, so I bought another 1000 shares. imagine my frustration wathcing this continue down into the 21's later in the day. Thats when I wrote the post about wishing i had taken my own advice and shorted. i would have done so for only one day. I never short and hold overnight.
        I hope you guys are right about the bad news being out and overwith, I didnt hear any bad news. And, anyone heard of "european jitters"? Greece with a hard default? Deflation? commodities going down signaling GLOBAL SLOWDOWN? I think these things FAR outweigh any good restatement or good performance or any good news that dmnd might have. No??

        The dude wrote that he's long.

      Congratulations! You've learned an expensive, but important lesson.

        So far the total drop of 6% from yesterday's close and a small rebound on 3x the daily volume. I'd say the shorts just squeaked by but not being able to drop the pps by 10% with sell-on-the-news sentiment in a down market speaks to their weakness.
