Wow, I mean, your timing's impeccable, honestly. To have this call today, on a day where I have my best trading day of all time. But today was definitely crazy. That's the best way I can describe it. You know, the ticker of the day was $UONE and that one, if you just pulled up a chart and just take a look at it, I mean that tells a story in itself, right?
It was a big-time short squeeze. And at the open it looked like it was one of those stocks that would just fade off into oblivion, typical small-cap stock — you know, everyone thinks it's fundamentally just going nowhere and next thing you know it traps a bunch of shorts and it takes off. And it goes from, I think it was 13, and then it goes to 15, next thing you know it goes to 20, and then 25, and it was like when is this going to end, you know?
And I think it hit a high of like $40, right? So, I mean, while that's a very irrational move, we all know the market is capable of very irrational behavior. I mean, that spells opportunity for guys like me, right? I got in on the long side on multiple occasions and I ended up... I was up already about $50,000 in the morning on the short side. Mainly of $UONE and I traded another ticker $MCEP, but $UONE in the afternoon, I did not expect to get that kind of opportunity. I did not think that I was going to have a six-figure day today.
You know, I thought that hey, $50,000 that's a pretty good day as it is, and then I wake up and I see this thing going bonkers. I'm like, oh, okay, alright... I'll take it. And I just jumped in and just rode the wave, man. Rode the wave all the way up to, whatever it was, $40 and yeah, I had another $50,000 through the day. So, finished a total, officially I think about $104,000. So, that's a personal record for me.
