this is why I haven't tried shorting facebook, too many shares locked up who knows where and with God knows who keeps it propped up, looks like nothing changed here, two weeks ago looked like it was trading freely, but I guess not
tell me about it, I hate fvck in market, just hate it
probably will close out my AMZN 260 PUTs at an 80% loss today
have a good weekend everyone
during 2007 there were stocks jumping in leaps and bounds like HANS (now MNST)
I wonder if a lot of these hot stocks will be around 5 years from now
too many I.T. companies chasing the same web cloud dollar, how can they all be winners?
same goes for the web streaming!, might just end up like airline industry, always losing money
sybil, you are always watching the market, how do you resist the options when you see key trading levels (50 day, 200 day etc) broken?
I'm a die hard AAPL long, and sold a small portion of shares at $457+ earlier in the week. Couldn't add any yesterday because of a margin issue : )
Yet, even though I dumped some shares because of a gut feeling I had, I didn't buy any aapl puts. Anyway, I just continue to suck and suck more at this. Although I did jump into TSLA last Friday at $70 and jumped out at $79.99
but yeah I suck
I really have to learn to put in a stop loss on my options when they are in the money. Holding yet another option that is down 75% which was up for me 25% at one point. what the hell is wrong with me
We'll see if Timmy actually starts to buy shares, we might find out where the line in the sand is drawn. Tepper unloaded a shitload of equities last few months and went on TV pounding the table to buy stocks. Closed out AMZN short yesterday at loss of course.
yesterday morning they had the Lallapolozah Tepper guy pounding table to buy markets meanwhile the spent the last quarter dumping everything in site, see the Market Watch article
Channel 79 guest proclaim $240 target on AAPL while another says AMZN is valued to cheaply. no comment
okay, i got your pt. I thought for a moment that you were supporting the crazy momo trading that the has taken over this market.
I dumped some shares at 457 on Monday cuz the market looked toppy and skating on thin ice.
What happens? all the absolute #$%$ is green and AAPL is down big today, I should have followed my gut and bought puts yesterday
I just hate this market, just hate it. Just like that love/hate chart you made yesterday
the only winning 'strategy' the word you choose to use is to do exactly what? just keep piling on the current trend trade that is working at the moment?
I started a AAPL long and AMZN short paired trade last week. not doing so well right now
I hate this market, just hate it ugh
There is investing.
There is trading.
There is a blend of investing and trading.
But right now, the trend trading is the 800 lb gorilla that is creating a distortion field the size of a black hole.
well, my paired trade AAPL long/ AMZN short was just awful so far
why does everything have to be so upside down on the logic side
Need to cash out completely, mutual funds, etc sit on the sidelines until normality comes back
