    • phemale60: Do you think it's a good time for it? Europe/Bernake seems solidly moving in less volatile direction. Could be XIV time instead!

    • ComputerBlue: XIV looks good for now...but I think things have been overbought and too calm for too long..I think things will change over the next 1-2mos.

    • ComputerBlue: I hope I'm wrong though. Im not lined up for much downside protection at the moment.

    • phemale60: Indeed, with election near could be calm before the storm! could entry for VXX but hesitant - just sold it last week at loss!

    • ComputerBlue: I'm not sure how much steadier things could be..It may be better to wait another week or so on VXX..I expect o see at least a little more..

    • ComputerBlue: volatility soon...may be a bad idea too. Only a tiny position.

    • Edicarmen: I bought VXX at 11 and i am down 15% in 2 days - i completely agree market is overbought but i thought that 2 months ago

    • ComputerBlue: I hear ya..I cant imagine making it through October without some shake-ups.

    • phemale60: I'll buy VXX when the debt ceiling fight begins again! Today Germany relaxed Europe and USA -- market doing nicely. XIV maybe!

    • ComputerBlue: Stop loss triggered on VXX..Ben wins the gamble...we all win when Ben wins though. Trimmed to 4 holdings. I'm more fearful than greedy :)

    • phemale60: A serious well-respected gent who wouldn't lead us astray. Big Ben's got my trust, tho not many others' from what I gather on this site.

    • ComputerBlue: He never lets us down. I'm holding BAC, SD, SDRL and AIG. BAC is a big beneficiary of Ben's decisions.

    • phemale60: I sold BAC last mo./got BCS (against my judgment) on a tip. Paid off so far. I am invested in VVUS from 2010; diet drug approved July but

    • phemale60: up and down until marketing. Not real experienced but exciting to see it finally approved. Hard to let go. Have gains but . . .
      9/14/12
    • ComputerBlue: I'll have to do some research on VVUS. BAC and BCS are both benefitting from the recent developments. I presume both will be much higher..

    • ComputerBlue: come January..I dont know how much buying I'll be doing at these levels.

    • phemale60: I am just trading within a 25 yr. old IRA /sold mutual funds and done much better in 2009 -- no brainer! But past 2 yrs. been jumpy

    • phemale60: Hold too long and lose gains, happens all the time. Sometimes I hit on one like TCPTF a few weeks ago and up 42% - wish I'd got more
