Well, I will admit that I have been educated many times over the years by the market .... I'm still just playing the statistical edges that have been good to me in the past ....

Sold my IBM spread today for a return on risk of 12% not including commissions. I wanted to be out of the trade by earnings, nonetheless. I don't like my capital tied up in a trade that long.

I rolled calls up in CF when it gapped up. It won't stop going up. :)

This market is unreal. It like the dash for trash all over again.

Good trading and have a good weekend.

Has anyone looked recently at these short plays that were posted on or about 1/9/2012?

You would be taking a real a$$ kicking. Alternatively, I guess it could be said you'd be getting educated real quick by the market.

I see one of the stocks is up over 80% and another is up over 60% .....

Take it easy, up 18% as a whole, will be down 50% by eoy.

A sure thing formula to success. I'm up 33% on my real shorts.

These are my B listers.

Well, being a reversion to the mean player and given the extent to which the market was statistically overbought .... I was weighted short for a good portion of last month .... I ended up with a managable loss .... it will be interesting to see what February brings ....
