KEEP CALM AND ZZZZZZZ ZZZZZZZZ Poster | Eleonora | Keep Calm-o-Matic

Playing only DEFENSE this week:

Wednesday: (BAC, XOM, CVX, AAL, TSN, EPD, BBBY, MAC, FLR)

Had to roll EPD out and down, so it will not expire this week. Just trying to preserve enough excess to keep paying the FTB every day, and the fade into the close helped me, so even with all the necessary fiddling I ended up with enough excess to hit the FTB again on Thursday:

Thursday: (TNA, INO, LABU, RAD, CVX, XOM, EPD, M, BBBY)

Ended up with enough excess to feed the FTB again on Friday: 

Friday: (RAD, M, TSN, MU, XOM, TNA, FLR, AAL, CVX, BBBY, BAC, INO)

PHEWIE! I think I have a cramp in my clicking finger after ramming through those 22 trades. Spent the day "protecting" my excess. Any can that could be kicked......I need a nice dip. Where's Biden when I need him? Oh right, he put a lid on it and is already taking another nap.

Ended up with enough available excess to finish paying the FTB:

ahahaha and 3 hours later it's:

At least it went up this time and not down.

UPDATE @ 9-26:

HAHAHAHAHA! and Saturday am it's new, lower number!

What will it be tomorrow? Only E*TRADE knows!

                                        -----------------

Sadly nothing to expire today, and nothing really to expire (from all that can kicking) until 10/16:

Will we make it through the next 2 weeks without having to close out anything to release equity???? Let's ask the Parrot!

    .................Knowing takes all the fun out of throwing darts - am I right?

*For those that don't know, the FTB is not a stock, or an X-Wife, it's Guvnor  Newsom's Progressive Idiocy Implementation slush fund funder, the Franchise Tax Board.
