Having a negative YTD return is far from being in debt--especially since it's unrealized losses.

Being is debt is someone who just got a margin call after shorting a stock that went parabolic.

Hope that make you feel better :cry:

That move has kept you near the top of the 2022 leaderboard ever since. How did you decide when to jump in - then out? What's your criteria for getting back into the game?

Mainly just the seat of my pants. I watch a lot of news, listen to Cramer, and CNBC. And, when I get to thinking things can't possibly get lower, wait another day or so, then try to catch a quick bounce and get out. I still think we may be a few days or more until the next decent bounce. Be patient, don't fight the trend (which is generally negative right now). Thanks, Jim.
