To All thread viewers

Gottfried has done an excellent job getting this thread going and I agreed to take over for him.

Some changes to the basic format.
B&H (Buy and Hold ...indefinite time period) is added to the Reporting Format
LT B&H (Long Term Buy and Hold)

It would be helpful to all thread viewers if the rational for posted trade was also explained. For example...oversold, way below book value, new guidance from company, insider buying, charting indicates a buy signal , good covered call write, etc.

Reporting format example:
opening post: AMAT DT bot 1000 @ 52.94 9:43am
[optional: brief reason like "momentum reversed", "Fed increased rates"]
closing post: AMAT DT sold 1000 @ 53.80 10:00am 1.62%

DT= day trade
ST= more than a day, no more than a week.
MT= more than a week to 3 months
SS= short sale
CS= cover short
B & W Buy and write as a covered call for income

B&H (buy and hold)indefinite time period)
LTB&H long term buy and hold ( something you might do for grand kid as a college trust)

options format:
AMAT BO Jul $18 C 30@$1.25 (bought 30 contracts of July calls for $1.25, strike price = $18)

BO=bot to open; BC=bot to close; SO=sold to open; SC=sold to close

time of trade only if materially different from time stamp of posting.
the % is the gain before commissions and taxes.

All who restrict themselves to reporting of their trades in a civil manner are welcome.
Complaints from 3 thread users can lead to suspension of a poster.
