Believe it or not I did have a positive month end OPEX. I have to learn
that just because I am bullish does not mean the stock agrees with me.
Some of these stocks were downright disagreeable. I have to learn how
to place stops and be pleased that I am preserving some capital when a
trade goes against my premise. Sort of rant over. I feel better. Perhaps
that’s because I played golf this morning.

Thanks to everyone for all your assistance.
Have a great weekend and a magnificent eclipse.
