    I shorted at the top!!!

    Actually I just go my money back - that is all. I was futzing with it below 100 (one hundred) because it was 'too popular'.
    I had the sense to get out quick before getting burned but still.... I must have done it about 8 times or so. This just proves that shorting is for idiots because you have to use a stop. AAPL is a very special mania and that is my only reason for having done it. No more moving in and out - now I hold to maybe 120 or something... Rules are meant to be broken and if everyone dumps on it I will cover for the bounce and later.... There will have to be massive selling first before I even consider more stunts.

    The short was at 684 but then covering and shorting and covering and shorting does bring it up top the peak.
