Financial Friday # 16



This week we saw a bunch of earnings announcements. As we all know the economy is not doing so well. Monday BAC released its earnings for last quarter. Knowing this was coming I decided to short BAC right after the earnings call. The market tends to over react after earnings are release so I waited to see what the trend was. Once I saw the trend was down I shorted 1400 shares of BAC. Yes this was a huge play and risky. I did know the market was heading down and I watch the market the entire time I was playing BAC. I was ready to get out if BAC went above 10 for some reason. It worked out BAC dropped throughout the day and I was able to close out on Tuesday at $7.51.

I was able to make $3080 on the trade and get out safely. I decided to take the rest of the week off as I wanted to spend sometime outside and dig up some of the bones I buried last year. Not that it is nice the ground is soft and digging is fun again

Current balance: $16497
