    Thanks, oppa! Did you short while looning? Easier to make money from shorting when market is falling.

    My paper trades...

    Most are underwater.
    A couple are flat.
    Only one in the right direction.
    Nett Nett = aa3.gif

    Only when the Nett Nett puts a smile on my face that I can put real money on the table.

    Nice one there.
    August was a tough month.
    To be able to make 6K in that month is a feat.
    CONGRATS.

    If inactivity in the market is something you cannot deal with and you are tempted to trade,
    I suggest you do realistic paper trades. The outcome of your paper trades will tell you whether
    you are ready to put money on the table. If you are not ready, meaning, you keep getting the
    direction wrong, you will be very glad those are only paper trades.

    Guys,

    Market is still whipsawing.
    Changing direction at will and without warning.
    LONG die SHORT also die.
    This kind of market, capital preservation is best.
    Because when the market has finally bottomed out and is the best time to buy,
    you will have no more money to buy. Your money will be stuck in stocks bought
    higher. That is, if you keep tikaming now.

    I read this somewhere...in the stock market, its not just BUY, SELL and HOLD.
    CASH... is also a position.

    2928 now.

    The FEAR we saw last week... is not there.
    Just the usual weak sentiments.
    But no fear.
    I guess to some extent, that selldown last week created some sort of capitulation where
    those who wanted to sell at all costs have done so.
    And those who want to sell today are those who are either taking profit having picked the
    LOWs correctly last week or those who chased too late into the rebound and are cutting loss.
