Heh heh -- nope. Rode this sucker right into the ground.

Fortunately, or maybe 'Foolishly', I had cashed out half of my stake on one of the upswings and was playing with Other People's Money, for the rest of the ride.

An unpleasant, but very valuable lesson about getting out at the first whiff of trouble, purchased at a very fortunate $0.00 price tag.

Gentle training for an overly optimistic beginner such as I am.
