It was somewhat crappy most of the morning, but we eventually broke out of it. I got in on the pullback we had in the DJIA at 11:32amEST, but didn’t have the guts to stick with it too 7950. It was a disappointment, but I’m over it now. I actually had a paper-trade before my real trade as you can see by how they are listed in “Discretionary trading”.
