    Could be a good buying opportunity, gents.

    That is, unless the knife keeps falling.

    Alright! I hope this is the start of the 10-15% correction that everyone's been talking about.

    Me too. I'm sitting on 40% cash waiting on it. Started nibbling today.

    RGT only dropped 4% today, seems like the market thinks the whole Argentinian defaults as a non-event. If it drops further I might be interested in doing a short trade.

    Taking a risk on GPRO earnings, bought in right now.

    Also bought the inverse VIX ETF betting that we stabilize tomorrow (XIV)

    If we don't rebound tomorrow I'm shifting out of some of my more risky positions. I do not like that we are selling off on the back of a strong earnings season.

    The market has been more or less insulated from geopolitical / macro events up until now. I'm worried short term.

    Sorry everyone, should have warned you this would happen. I decided to dump a lot more cash into some ETFs 2 days ago on the assumption the market would immediately head into a tailspin so I could double down. So far so good.

    Things have stabilized after yesterday.

    Got fucked on GPRO

    Bought the inverse VIX at close yesterday and that's been a good bet.
