October is when the stars shine brightest. It is the time when good players become great players and when others who are role players step up. It is a time for great baseball and for winners. It is also a time for goats, players who make a mistake at the worst possible time and cost their team a game or even a series. There have been plenty of goats in the market this month as well. Anyone who is breathing knows the craziness we have all endured. The wild point swings in the major indices, the fear-mongers, the panic-selling! Since the beginning of October, we have seen some highs, but for the most part we have seen mostly lows in the market. Oct. 1 saw a high of 11,022.06, the apex of the month. On the 10th, the Dow dropped to 7,773.71. Obviously it has been a rocky road, but if you looked at my results, it wouldn't seem that way. I improved my record to 78-0 and crossed the $200,000 win total on Friday. I have had eight wins in October with my Nails on the Numbers newsletter, and it is only the 21st. I had eight wins for June, 10 in September and 11 in May. I'm on pace to have a solid month, even while others have cut and run. Many have sold their positions for a loss and are now sitting on the sidelines. However, as they say with lotto, you've got to be in it to win it. And I've been winning because my system works.
