Day Twenty Four
Okay, here we go! Live Cattle, we're trading the Live Cattle account. If this thing just moves back a couple pennies, I'm going to be knocked out of the game, altogether.
In fact, it's going to get me going the other direction, there's another mistake. There's another horrible, horrible mistake. Where is my full service broker to help me with this one? I'm only short 1, but I got a buy stop in for (2). That means that I'm going to reverse myself in this market. If it goes, you know, maybe that's not such a bad thing.
Oops, I screwed up and made some money. You know, I'll tell you, it has happened. I've had people tell me that it has happened. They accidentally left a stop loss sitting out there, and didn't realize, forgot about it. Three weeks later the broker calls him on the phone and says, "You're in, you're up $650.00!" You know, totally unaware. But usually, you know, I would sure like to know what I was doing. You don't want to have that happen to you.
That should really be a 1 right there. Buy (1) on a stop, buy (1) on a market if touched, sell (3), short (1), buy (1) to get me out. I don't want to reverse my market here.
Let's step this thing forward, step.. oh! Dropped back in my favor. That's a beautiful little drop, it's putting about another $100.00 back in my account. That's what it is, that's all I get for the day.
That's it, one tic, one day.
