in the market for the last 3-4 weeks. 90% of it all safe stuff, mostly short term securities and bonds. No new equity stocks. I'm sliding most of my portfolio over to the fixed or slightly variable side. It seems to be working for now...

jeebus, your portfolio is bigger than my portfolio. I'm up about 5k <i>a week</i> since the dog days of March but that is just getting me back right with the lord. I was able to dump some dogs and uh "recalibrate" my short term goals by putting some into down but not quite out regional banks, GFG and CNB. We'll see how that works out.

You guys are pimps!

I've been making, on average, $463/day for the past 2 weeks. I'm only playing options and have been buying calls and puts on SKF, DIA and SPY.

Sooner or later my luck will run out, but for now, I feel like a sophisticated options trader. :D

I fucked up on my calculation, it's more like around $2K per day for that period. Not too shabby though...

5k a day is 1.76 mil a year , not bad

sure, prior to the last month the same portfolio netted me a $48K loss in first quarter of 09. Now that's what we call volatility...
