That day is still a blur. I won't even get into how high my daily gain was for about 2 minutes, and how I am ecstatic just to have ended up with half of that 15 minutes later, locked in.

Now I won't even speculate on who actually ended up picking up those stocks at rock bottom prices from those with stops set in no-wayland, that would have been adjusted if there was further downside pressure.   [more]
