No way in hell are you green today unless your 100% oil  Big Grin
Except I am.  Oil, UTEs, JNJ, RTX, magic MSFT put day trade.  A few others up a bit.  The many puts and calls I sold fading to worthless like usual.  I have covered calls sold on 90% of my port and this was a good month for that.  Of course I am lucky enough to not own anything that got killed today.  I bet I've only had 3 green days this month.  Conservative options don't save me but they take the sting off a lot of months. I am going to guess 60% of the forum outperforms me in a crazy good bull market. I've put a lot of effort into learning how to protect a modest lead. Thousands of hours, literally.

So post this thread with your stats often or be silent lol. I share my bad days real time.  I have nobody I need to impress.

Dude your my hero  Big Grin


I think you just like to impress us every chance you get. Who are you kidding hahaha!  Big Grin
LOL. I wish I could trade the bull as well as you.
I really am just trying to not get killed but stay invested enough to catch a rally. Most of us knew this was coming soon. We learn new lessons every bull run and correction. I caught a break and had too much cash to start the year. 2022 is not going to settle down soon IMO. This thread should be active.
Sorry for the silence; it's been rough for me. Nevermind my E*Trade account, here's what has happened to my company stock since its ATH in September:

So yeah, mood is dark.
That has been typical for tech unfortunately.
LMT and TXN did all righty

I will be pleasantly surprised if the market doesn't chop around for six months.

Only BK I expect are the sham IPOs that won't sniff a profit during this economic cycle. Those stocks are getting too cheap to dilute with so they'll be paying some loan shark interest to keep the game going.


Poneyboy, I recommend listening to Fender, he’s old and experienced..

Plus the coming interest rate increases is gonna leave a deeper mark on tech IMO.

If there are too many rate increases anything with a lot of debt will struggle.  Even bullet proof FAANG with fortress balance sheets will care if their customers are forced to trim expenditures.  Let's hope it's a couple rate increases and a very long pause.  Election might help us as the FED tries to not completely melt the markets down this summer.
Nice ending to the week. Still down 5% off ATH. Solar got me the worst early in the week. The whole month has been horrible for solar. My small cap index fund is limping too. Hopefully FEB will be gentler than JAN but that might be optimistic.
Our equity combined portfolio is the winner. We are only down 0.4% from our time high.

There was a rotation to value for sure.  My port is diversified with some growth so I had many stocks up and down.  Oil sure helped.  FAANG has pretty much corrected now and that needed to happen IMO since they dominate the indexes.  Many of the value stocks have underperformed large CAP growth for a long time so I am hoping they will be spared.
... and just like that my gains of the last two days were wiped out. In a way, it is somewhat calming because I was getting nervous that I'd missed buying at the bottom, and now it seems the market is happy to wait for me to acquire funds before it starts a serious recovery.
