It's funny, been doubting the bulls all day but 20 points later on the downside I still have not been short. On that note, long at 1068.

What a day... Down almost 3% from the mornings high and it just keeps going lower. I'm done, not my day today.

Edit,
4%.

Edit 2,
4.75% down from todays high. Very strange.

Well, OMXS30 is down another 1.5% this morning and that means I have to spend this day managing some of my bleeding stocks and options. Not sure if I'll have the time to do any CFD trading. Keep it safe!

Brutal. OMXS30 went from 1087 to 1012 in two days. -2.5% today. Maybe I should have been trading CFDs today, a lot of money to be made if you're on the right side of the market. Unfortunately my portfolio isn't, largest position down almost 10% in 2 days. Tough times indeed.

OMXS30 down another 2%. This journal will be on hold until things stabilize, I'm not going to have the time to do this, trade the EURUSD (which is my main income) and manage my stocks and options.
