I’ve Always Thought

the phrase “I’d rather be lucky than good” was stupid. I would rather be good at something, it seems amateurish to rely on luck. BUT when I do experinece good luck I am thrilled. It isn’t very often that you can make a mistake like the one I did and have it work out so well. After hours Dryships, Inc (DRYS) reported earnings and I saw the stock trading at 117ish, I decided to send a test order way above where the market was trading to see if it was shortable, just in case. When I sent the order to sell short 500 shares at 123.47 I was horrified to see it get filled, I didn’t want to sell it short on such huge strength so I IMMEDIATELY entered an order to buy it back at 120.00 and was filled almost instantly! LUCKY!!
