You keep mentioning the various investments you're making. But you don't tell us how you are doing or have done on previous positions. Have you closed ANY of them?

Blah blah blah......... And gold's suppose to be a gigillion dollars an ounce by now.......

You may be a little optimistic calling for a "Meltdown", IMHO.

I'm a day trader. My average buy is $6,000. I hold anywhere from 15 minutes to 5 days. I define a meltdown as 20 points on the S&P, which nets me around $800. A good day is two or three round turns. Today, I have done two. I see at least one more. We're leaving for Las Vegas tomorrow morning. (12 days.) Yes, I will trade daily while there. It helps to pay for my craps plays...

Do you only trade the indices? Do you trade on "technicals" or intuition (ie. X% above or below MA, etc.). How long have you been a "Day Trader"? Sounds like you have something figured out. BTW, I think I know what's in your desk...mine too.

A "meltdown" is 20 points on the S&P? You've got to be joking! We've had plus 20 point down moves on the S&P FIVE times since January 1. Peddle this type of rubbish in one of your daytrader chat rooms.

BTW: I just watch. It's like an Indy car race to me, a crash is gonna happen, just don't know when. (I don't want a crash to happen, I enjoy watching the competition and driving skills.)

As I suspected after your last couple posts, you're a gambling addict. Do us a favor, when you go bezerk, please don't shoot anyone.
