Mish was dead right from Naz 5000 to 1200....wish I had listened sooner...but since then he is outdated....and more and more outdated all the time....and I do listen....while a few years ago I picked up cruxial parts of the bear philosophy....I soon realized I was wasting time not profitting in the markets.....I made 1400% last year and that is documented on the Mish board.....Mish called after me for months that my investment in XM options was a very dumb thing to do.....

DB that is a lie.
You made 14,000% on a trade that was very gutsy.
What I criticized you for was not taking profits anywhere on the way up. The same mistake you made on RMBS.
At numerous points you had 200% 400% and even 800% profits locked in and refused to take ANY profits off the table ON AN OPTIONS PLAY that at the time was STILL OUT OF THE MONEY. You did not even protect your initial investment. With XMSR it worked out. Congradulations.

If my board is a waste of your time and outdated, please do not hang out there.
