I don't know, but never say never with this thing. I do not have the "giant sweaties" to hold on here. I trade this like a wimp catching small moves and often leave a lot on the table (such as today).
The big move (maximum fear) was today and we probably bounce next week. I am mostly cash but added to some long positions today, including SPY.
Being Summer and all, I prefer to stay at least 50% cash and not spend my free time in front of this screen!
To be fair - those who have held short positions here long term are still cleaning up (you know who you are), despite todays action. I'll give credit where credit is due. I don't have enough conviction to hold this longer term either way.
Anything can happen here and gifts like this don't happen often. I would not hold over weekend, but to those that do - good luck, I wish you well!
I'll be back in next time it gets crushed, and it will get crushed sooner or later.
I left plenty on the table today, but not a bad trade. This little hedge kept me green today....
Congrats longs, now time for some beer and lobster rolls!
Also, congrats to Britain. You did the right thing in the long run!
Always very quiet on up days, but loves to kick us when we are down.
Lick it Mulani! You to Phisher!
Dam I left alot on the table! Seems to always happen, but maybe its why I consistantly win here. Oh well, not looking back.
Congrats to you Lobster, have a few lobster rolls for me.
Back in here today, and I am not a doomer. This is just a very small hedge and fun to trade. Well in the green here since I began trading it. Just buy it when it gets killed and take your 5-10% and run - that is my strategy LoL.
Same here. I have been doing pretty well here but gave a bunch back today. Glad I took profits before going on vaca last week. Back in today at 11.19.
I took my eyes off the wheel for 20 minutes and did not stop myself out, now stuck.
Well, that order never filled. Individual stocks are tough to live with around earnings time, of course I should have just "put it on a shelf". Maybe I should stick to ETF's.
At least I did not sell the shares in my Wife's acct. She dislikes excessive trading and has been beating me by a mile. Happy wife happy life right?
Congrats to longs that the ballls to hold, nice way to end the week.
Sold at 15.39, hope I can get back in close to that. Doubt it will happen tonight. Of course the one time I decide to sidestep earnings I get blown out.. If I held it would have gone down 20%
Burned too many times holding stocks like this through earnings. Todays report is solid and I am happy to get back in.
