In the Sudden Slope Sentiment Shift post from late last week, I stated that of the cancellations I had received on April 9th (which seemed to be some kind of “Max Pain” point for people), all but one stated their reason as something along the lines of, “It’s not you, it’s me.

There was one exception, however, and he stated, in its entirety, the following:

150% short get’s us all excited only to find out that night on Closing trade you covered…you\’re a day trader who shows longterm charts…should have waited until the price hits 50day to short….killed me

I thought this merited a response, because I must strongly disagree with the characterization of myself as a “day trader.”
