the coveted 99.00
Using the CAPS system can be quite helpful as a diary for your investment ideas, state of mind, market sentiment and Foolishness of course. As I review my random posts from back in 2009 I realize the true folly of my ways...and I suspect as I reflect in another three the thoughts and trades I post over on Twitter will seem equally as ridiculous. You can check them out here
Today for the first time I achieved the 99.00 score and I am quite pleased since it has been a goal for all this time...ever since I wasn't allowed to participate in the AllStarPortfolio back in 2009 for having an inferior score. : )
Of course one's score means very little for a variety of reasons but I have enjoyed the journey and appreciate all of the folks who blog here regularly. And now that I pointed my score out it will no doubt drop precipitously.
I will leave you with an old poem from a previous blog. Don't let the gyrations of the market get you down.
watch it nudge tick by tick..
analyze the day bit by bit.
another soul has lost its gaze...
beneath the market's greedy haze.
long or short, gold and swine...
our role indeed is quite benign.
stay on top, watch it creep...
another soul has fallen deep.
