Market Watch Game Update

Here is the Market Watch game update for this week. I seriously screwed up as I let a $6000 gain evaporate. I will be selling today, although the bounce seems to have ended and I am going to be taking losses, bu I can't take a chance on a bigger draw down.

Here are the open positions and completed trades for the last two weeks. I did not do much trading coming into Wednesday, and I had planned on selling quite a few of the positions before the FOMC announcement, but ended up selling only one. That was a huge mistake, and now I am paying for it. I am going to try to hold the stronger stocks here, but a lot of these have weakened significantly and I really should not be holding them. I should also be looking for short positions, as I think this correction is going to get pretty severe. Thankfully, I have been much more cautious in my real account, but it is still frustrating, because I knew this was coming and had the right strategy, I just didn't implement it.
