I blog about a WHOLE LOT of stuff :)

…have a bizarre sense of humor.

Friday and today were absolutely excellent trading days for me. My trading account hit an all-time high today. Excellent moves/sales in TWTR and GPRO calls bought last week, sold LC also from last week and sold my UWTI position +5% that I was down 20% just a short time ago. And I jumped in and out of the monster that is TWLO for a very nice win. Was feeling pretty happy….so naturally AH decided to take me down a peg…

I bought some HAIN calls last week (have had a small stock position in my 401k for a long time) as it started running. I *ALMOST* sold the position as a quick in/out trade on Friday as it really heated up but then didn’t. Got greedy and thought maybe they really DO announce an acquisition over the weekend. And then when nothing was announced – almost sold AGAIN this AM. Still up on position. But nooooooo….the greed devil on my shoulder said “hey they are September calls…hold them a little longer….” Sigh…It’s a small position but make some VERY annoyed. Since I ignored myself TWICE to sell. Gah.

HAIN came out after hours today and announced reporting/financial issues. Always a winner. Stock tanked about 25%. Yay. I will likely add to my LT position at these levels (maybe) but those calls should be nice and worthless. Grrrr. Hate that greed devil.

The stock market gods giveth, the stock market gods taketh away. Back to work to make that back….
