This morning was weird. I was only expecting a pull back in the DJIA to about 7900, but it decided to blast off. Then the market set up for a nice short, so I shorted the DJIA (long DOG) and wound up being stopped out. My only regret for today is that I only got about ¾ of my shares at my stopout in DOG, the rest were exited lower than I wanted.
