I'm finding myself feeling, well, I guess frustrated beyond all realm of reality today.
I mean I (speaking for MYSELF) sit here with all my investment money tied up in a stock (HUGE mistake) that I though had great short term potential. Three months later I'm still not at the break even point. SIRI has not gone bk. AIG has been in the thick of this financial mess and the stock shoots uo to over $19.00 per share overnight? I give up. I'm desperately trying to find a reson not to pull out and take a small loss (which I vowed to myself never to do). In my life though that's how things seem to work. If I stay in, we all might see the market throw us a bone evry once in a while to the tune of a few cent gain every now and then and perhaps in a few years I could make what "my" other stocks that I watch do in a week. Whoopie. If I get out, something will cause SIRI to do what AIG has done and it will shoot up 100 fold. I can hear it now, "Well then get out now so we can make some money!"
Sorry for my rant. I know, "That's the market. Learn how to live with it or get out." or "You obviously don't have a head for this so I would just take my loss and run".
I guess I'm looking for more than that though, being a newbie. Any wisdom other than flaming? Guess the way I'm feeling flaming wouldn't make me feel any less of a loser.
Thanks to anyone, if anyone, who replies. I just don't get it.
