Market Watch Game Update

Here is the Market Watch game update for this week. The game was down on Monday and part of Tuesday, and that screwed up several of my trades, but the damage was slight. However, I am woefully under performing and really need to catch up here.

Here are the completed trades and open positions I have. longs on the left, shorts in the right. All the short stops got hit Monday but did not execute until Tuesday, so I took slightly bigger losses than I would have had they been working. On the long side, the only trade that got screwed up was PKY: that was reporting Monday night, so I sold it before earnings, but it did not execute. PKY had a favorable reaction to earnings, so i went to buy it back Tuesday morning. Neither trade executed until Tuesday afternoon, and apparently I entered the order twice, because it got bought twice. That was also lucky for me, it could have been disastrous if it went the other way.  Right now I am leaning 100% long, and more inclined to add to existing positions than initiate  new ones.
