I don't know whether to root for the bulls or the bears anymore. Now that I've taken a short position in the market, I can make a little money on a terrible day like today. On the other hand, I still have my long positions too, so the best I can ever do is break even. Going short just allows me to hedge my bets a bit and hopefully limit my losses. I just hate all this volatility. One day the market is up a hundred points and the very next day it is down two hundred for no apparent reason. Nothing has changed about the companies or the economy. It's all just reading tea leaves these days.
The dogs sure seem happy that Janet has returned. Maybe life with me got a bit boring by the end of the week. Or, maybe it was just the box of special dog treats in Janet's suitcase.
