On Black Monday markets worldwide collapsed by 20%, today we are down just about 9%. Not everything is bad in today's world see !!
In this week's OMG news: I finally managed to ride my first stock to $0.00. I had aggressively bought Wachovia bank-WB when it was part of the financial rally early last month, managing to make a killing as it moved from the 9s (bought a big chunk at 10.x) to the 20s. Even booked a big chunk of those profit, but still held onto a fair number of shares. And today it is at $1.84. Life is good. Oh and yes the market is a bitch.
Cuurently: On life tilt. And contemplating moving my whole equity-portfolio to my poker accounts. To put it in perspective, ROI in poker 35% (essentially it means that on an average everytime I play an online poker game I make $45, extrapolate that to well over several thousand games), ROI in stock (YTD): -13.5%. Did I say life tilt??
