    • bothead: Ocean: You never posted your loss the SPY put position. Your credibility rating went down from 8 to 6 on a scale of 1 to 10.

    • neobliviscar: You expect perfection of him? OM adds lots of value. SPY move caught many vets wrong way. All sort of quietly nursed our wounds on that one.

    • neobliviscar: OM- I was late to the party on AT ($13.86- $13.91) after MJ & you called it sub $13. Did decent info dig & going to build larger position.

    • bothead: neo: It's perfectly fine to be wrong, but it's wrong to be misleading.

    • bothead: If you always post gains, but not all losses, you are being misleading. I wouldn't like to see Ocean blow his good start.

    • Ocean Man: I don't post all of my trades, usually due to being too busy at work, however I did post that one, it was in someone else's Stocktalk though

    • Ocean Man: neo - I still like AT, would re-buy on a pullback. Looking to take some gains here at 1425.

    • bothead: Ocean: For every entry that you post that is profitable, you post an exit when it happens. I haven't seen any exceptions to this.

    • bothead: And it is always a fresh thread that you start, and never on someone else's post.

    • bothead: You could always maintain credibiliy by posting losses, even after the fact if you don't have time to do it realtime.
      8/21/12
    • bothead: You encourage others to piggyback your trades, so credibility is a real issue.

    • Ocean Man: I'll try to put sales in new threads from now on so they're easier to find / follow.

    • Perkins Cove: bothead, how about some trade posting from you...?
      8/21/12
    • neobliviscar: Power to you OM. I try & post my larger confident moves. Most are 30-90 day holds of a Fund. Doing for discussion & ideas, not a following.

    • bothead: Ocean: Good, your "rating" will go back up.

    • neobliviscar: Some like my 5 month silver hold & oil trades are too confusing w/ hedges. FYI: Silver was a dog. Shoot me if I bring it up again this year.

    • bothead: Railto, I have no motivation to do that. I also would have difficulty making them timely, so there is no point to do it in my case.

    • Perkins Cove: So, no trades posted = a zero trade "credability rating"?
      8/21/12
    • bothead: Check my first posts. I have a 10. Now since I don't post trades, I can't give my self a grade.
      8/21/12
    • bothead: Rialto, I think you might be implying envy/jealousy on my part, but I think it's great that OM has so many good trades.
