Is that "short squeeze" ?

Mike


Yes, he likes CNBC mostly for the ticker tape at the botom, but he will pay attention to key news.

While he seems to be a fast learner, I have disabled all hot keys until he proves himself.

He is still finding himself as a trader. At 3 lbs, he is more interested in playing, picks his trades based on all sorts of things, no experience at all. He'd blow up in a week or less.

Price has been rejecting value all day, into new territory on the year, but for reasons that could turn on a dime. I am still just watching.

I got out at breakeven, not about to hold through the electronic close for anything, and then went out to run some errands. Now it hits my target...

Just took out the major high
