Closing Comments

Finally, this week is over.

I lost 1.7% over the last 5 business day, by bumbling around-- waiting for the fucking dip buyers to get the hell out of my way. It seems, although I could be wrong, those bastards have gone away-- fearing the economic slowdown may be "real" and that Cramer really is crazy for being a "Nasdaq Guy."

Earlier this week, I stated, on this time consuming blog, that I would probably cover my shorts and start buying stock. Well, I did buy ADBE and a few other stocks. But, I changed my mind with regards to covering my shorts.

I thought about it for awhile and remembered all the times I felt wrong about the market-- when in fact I wasn't. I was just a bit early.

Bottom line: I am sticking to my guns on betting the market will swan dive, effectively putting the God foresaken dip buyers on a pike.

As for the makets: Significant losses were found in Steal, Networker and Oil stocks.

Strength was found in Homebuilder, Gold and Retail stocks.

NOTE: MSCC warned after the close. WTF!

What kind of company warns after the close Friday?

Answer: A company who's stock is going down.

Have a great weekend Broker
 
Sell Rosh Hashana and buy Yom Kippur! Something like that... cheers!
 
It's strange that MSCC dropped big yesterday and 2 ANALists downgraded it today. Maybe the news were out somehow? I shorted it at the break-down today but was a bit unsure thinking it came down too much already. HA!
 
Nice job on the MSCC call.

I had reserved shared of AATI yesterday and didn't pull the trigger on the short, down 25% today.

Damn. Good times.

Take a look at my short list a few posts ago. Its there.
 
That AATI's chart is surely beautiful. I filter out stocks under $15. Maybe I should rethink it.
