U.S. Stocks Skid; Manufacturing Slows Down
U.S. stock investors continued their selling ways this week, pushing prices lower in early trading. Wednesday's slide stemmed from upbeat employment and manufacturing data for September, which although points to positive momentum for the U.S. economy, continued to fuel worries that the Federal Reserve may raise interest rates sooner than later.

Hi BMCD, u almost read my mind as to the struggles I go through to find which type of charts to look at (i.e., daily, 5min, etc).

I knew that it was near fatal to play options on a slow friday, that too ahead of a long weekend. I knew it was kind of "hoping against the hope" to hope for a quick bounce on GOOG on 5/25, but I still went for that trade.

But whenever I am just doing a paper trade, my trades will turn best traders green with envy. So I simply took a chance. Well hindsight is 20/20, and I lost money.

As u correctly pointed out in one of ur other posts - "If I hold, I lose money, If I sell, I lose money". I lost money for holding too long, and lost money for selling too early.

Thanks everyone for responding to my question. Great board.
