I blog about a WHOLE LOT of stuff :)

I wonder if any traders are singing this…

I bet a few in Hong Kong are right about now…

    meh – back in the day we called it the ‘dead cat bounce’

  2. Heh. I always hated that term. Too visual in my head!

    HK tanked hard so I’m pretty sure they were singing Tomorrow and clicking their heels together to go home and looking for a DeLorean :)

    But look! We were up the next day and then down more the next and now today were are up again! So tomorrow we should crash again right? Betting on the VIX is the only way to make any money. Well…that and more gold nuggets to swim in ;)

    Ha – doin’ the DCB!!!

    I haven’t traded in years – leave that stuff to the real pros, but reading the VIX is a good way to go. I like the way the market is blowing up – creating lots of special situations. :)

  4. Heh. I tend to use my account to invest (hold) and not trade (buy/sell/buy/scream/sell/sweat/argh!) BUT did do a bit of trading during earnings. AAPL and AMZN did pretty OK for me :) But now back to buy/hold :) But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to just sit in front of my Quotron and write buy and sell tickets ;)

    And a few good deals to be had right now….IMO.
