Flesh Wound (+ updated RS list of live longs)
Not to worry, I remain an idiot still.
This doesn't mean I will hold long-only in the face of a plunging market, but I remain perfectly bullish still on the 'here-to-Thanksgiving' outlook.
By now, none of you are even hopeful I will come through this unscathed. I think you all know I am doomed. It's okay, really. I invite you to watch.
It's a rope-a-dope strategy and it requires taking some blows. I won three out of four trading rounds last week, but was knocked to the mat on Friday. So while my week was more than 2.5% profitable, being on my back at the ring of the bell Friday changes everything.
It means my head is ringing.
