I do average down. This IS suppose to be a ST board. I seem to see a little bit too much DT angles tossed out as rules in here for my taste lately.

I see myself in this market for alongtime. I also see myself more as a LTBHer that will play a ST or even DT trade if it presents it's self. Like RayRH. I go into companies I trust to be in for along time. I'm in things like CAKE & EPG now. I KNOW that Companies like them will come out the otherside of The CA courts & down seasonal time & over all market drops & the like.

It seems to me to be getting lost in the fog, Things like, After one year the level it becomes a proft because the change in CG tax rate makes a differance too. Slow down & smell the roses, & look into your companies & entry a tiny bit more for your stress level sake.


Good post Carolyn! Stick to your style and no one else should be able to change that! If it makes you happy and successful then that's what you should be doing.

Many of the companies I STT are companies that I believe are good LT stocks as well, like LINK and LENS. I would suggest you use stops like Jean said since they can save you a lot of money in the future but everyone has their own way.

You go girl! LOL
