    Stupid mistake

    I made a big, stupid mistake this morning. Reading the scary posts before the market opened this morning I panicked and sold my shares at market price for the opening. Then for further stupidity, I doubled the amount of shares as a short and covered at a higher price to lose yet more money. In the end, I wish I had hung in there and never let the bashers on this board influence met.

    • Sorry to learn of your mess-up.

      Anyone buying or selling based on these boards must have head up arse!

      Expecting big gap up @ open, but my guess is only as good as the next person's.

    • Everyone makes mistakes, and must realize that this is part of the game. Tomorrow is another day, with plenty of opportunities. Your goal must now be to trade better and make it up. This will make you a better trader and is worth the lesson, grasshopper.

      Never take 'advice' from these idiotic know nothing, contribute nothing but BS bashers or pumpers.
