What a day. Incredible!

The only two bright spots in my day were (a) wonderful gains in my IRA, which is entirely comprised of crummy little penny stocks; (b) the longs in my big account, which saved my butt.

My IRA is at a new record high (even after suffering some FAZ damage before it was stopped out) and my big account stayed flat, but my two "all short" accounts suffered horribly. All in all, I'm down about 9% from my lifetime portfolio peak. Not devastating, but not worth celebrating either.

I'm going to ski. I will do a post later. But I need a break from charts and 55 point moves in the S&P!!!
