Damage was done today, but not to the market...
When I wrote yesterday that today would likely be the big down day, causing capitulation, I really believed it would happen. I let my emotions get the best of me on this one, and did a lot of damage by scaring my dear friend. For that, I am deeply sorry, as I only intended to help. I was wrong to push my opinion on someone else, even though I had the best intentions at heart. I guess the best way to help is to say nothing, and just keep your opinions too yourself.
I fear that I may have lost that friend, because of stupidity. I hope not, and I hope that in time she can forgive me for my actions. I'm not perfect by any means, and I'm certainly not that great at trading. I'm too emotional in my trades. I have learned a lot in the last year about trading, but controlling my emotions will be the hardest thing to master. In time, I'm sure I will, as I'm flexible and willing to adapt.
On top of hurting a dear friend, I have also lost a value member of this blog, as it seems that the site is getting too much traffic and drawing too much attention. I wish him well, and thank him for all he has taught me and everyone who listened. May he return someday, when the timing is near...
Since this is a Friday, and I rarely do posts on Fridays' I don't have any charts or forecasts to go over. I'll save it all for the Weekend Update report. I will say that Monday should be an up day.
Good luck to all of you good people, and may the trolls crawl back into their hole.
