    Can't believe my $BBRY stopped out at $16.20 while I was at lunch. My shares were the cheapest sold today.

    • SKS1586: My friend - Use mental stops, instead of hard stops. This is a way to save yourself from STOP Hunters.

    • jcllier3: Yes lesson learned. I thought $16.20 was too low to hit unless there was truly some bad news. I use hard stops for peace of mind,

    • realornot: expensive Lunch! now, go back have a drink or two!
      2/7/13
    • jcllier3: Yes, a few drinks while I wait for my next entry point, if one ever comes.

    • SKS1586: jcllier3: Every stock pulls back for re-entry. In case $BBRY does not follow that rule, Mr Market will provide many other opportunities.

    • cheznazi: Dang! Sorry buddy! It's a lesson I too learned the hard way. NEVER use stops on such a volatile stock. Some guy ....

    • cheznazi: ..@ yahoo message board literally BEGGED us not to use stop losses on Jan 30th for the very reason. You can get in again but for now.. OUCH!

    • In&Out: $BBRY ..stops are OK always set them in green territory, you will find another entry point.."soon". most days entry points appear!

    • Freedom44: $BBRY Are stop limits seen somehow?
      2/7/13
    • jcllier3: Big time OUCH cheznazi, but I find I learn my lessons best this way. In&Out, I agree, like I mentioned I do it for piece of mind.

    • jcllier3: I find it hard to get work done when I'm heavily invested in a stock like $BBRY, especially after watching it drop from >$18 to $13 recently
      2/8/13
    • jcllier3: So I use stop, and Freedom44 good question, I get that feeling. It literally dropped to from like $16.60 to $16.20, then shot to $17.20

    • jcllier3: I'm honestly curious if a single other investor sold for $16.20 or less yesterday.

    • jcllier3: But I'm wiser from the experience, and I appreciate everyone's thoughts. Best of luck to everyone today.

    • cheznazi: @jcllier3 - I hope you got in today ... it had a nice pullback
      2/8/13
    • jcllier3: @cheznazi, happy to be back in as of noon :) But keeping a close eye, right now I can see it going either way
