Great rant!

One point I differ on. Sell enough losers to take a tax write-off. You want to net a $3000 max of realized loss for the year. Then buy QQQ or Juniper with the proceeds. That way, you're staying a player in your own eyes, but taking the loss in Uncle Sam's. A month later, after the wash rule expires, you can get back into CSCO, if you want.

Long CSCO.
