Hi, Kenny and Larry,

Regarding buying/selling CYD and types of investors. I bought at about $19, sold at about $36 on Monday, and bought at about $28. It makes me look good on this stock. However, often times, I make much more mistakes than I get it right, like in CYD.

I don't think I am a good trader at all. I may be more of a realistic investor/trader, or hybrid invstor, or tradinvestor, as Larry put it, or maybe I am not real investor at all. I am just trying to learn as we are going. I do adjust my strategies. Like, this morning I said the sky for CYD may be falling, in the next a few hours, I see the volume for CYD to leave the possible support, I jumped back in right away. Also, when I saw CYD started to fall hard early this week with the broard market decline, I sold it to protect my gain. Because I did not want this CYD happens like JCOM, NTES, and ERES happened to my portfolio. Whatever the type of investing this is, I don't want to bleed too bad.

This is why I have been starting to look into the mechanical investing that does not involve emotions and still give me a decent return. I am trying to use the IBD top list to do a periodic and regular swapping the bad performers with the good performers. So far, my research result showed promise.

Anyway, happy investing and trading, or tradinvesting, or investrading... :))
