    Yes, I started averaging down yesterday, but left to go lift at 12:30...came back after market close and saw I was down 75% on my puts lol Boston explosion came out of nowhere. Lesson learned....get out of the gym before market close so you can average down A LOT if you need to lol.

    I am sure. From your mouth to god's ear, especially with a lot of dovish Fed speeches in between.
