Covered the HOMS. Going to have to keep tighter stops or I'm going to end up with more -4% days (ugh ugh ugh ugh UGH)

Long QQQ and Q calls, in addition to BAC BA BK. Thankfully this day is over. Going to think on lessons learned... was it just too painful? Or was I right to cover? Why didn't I cut the losses earlier?

Lesson learned; don't overallocate short when the VIX/VXN are so high. That is not a signal to cover, but it makes things more dangerous.

Puts working out today... feeling better, several beers, a good night's sleep later.

Okay, all covered now. The rest of the losses were very minor. The last one was BA, which I closed today. This bear market rally is poised to go further than I thought, and the fact that CSCO handled its abysmal report so well means this thing has legs. INTC announced tonight, everything is ripping afterhours. Long 8% CTXS, 92% cash still.

Ta,

Simon.

Short some WWCA FRX now... really wanted ONIS but there were no shares at CyberCorp. Gonna have to ditch those guys soon, there's been too many problems lately...

RHAT might be in a pop > 5 so it is marginable bounce at the moment?

Here is a list I've compiled:

They've been down more often lately (sometimes once a week), and their short list has been getting worse, I think.

There is no reason I shouldn't have been able to hit some ONIS today, and that frustrates me.

My first choice is going to be Interactive Brokers. I will probably keep the Cyber account just in case, but IB is what I will likely move to.

Cheers,

Simon.
