Here is summary of the the shorts I have entered in the last couple of weeks (not including the ill-fated AAPL and PCLN shorts). My strategy was to take many small loses and hit a couple of home runs. I had one in AE, and should have had one in CBOU but failed to update my stop on Thursday and gave back about half of what I had gained in it. My strategy was further complicated by earnings:I dumped a lot of these just before they reported, for either small gains or losses. I had one (URI) that I missed, and it gapped up on earnings, stopping me out for a bigger loss than I wanted. I gained $269.10 overall on these trades, but counting up the number of trades, that doesn't even cover comissions. I have decided to increase my starter positions: they were between $1500-2000: now for most positions I will double that. These last couple of weeks have been quite educational for me, and a lot of fun. If you want to join the game the link is on the right side of the page.
