  1. Great! “By next Friday, Apple’s iPhone 5 will be available in 98 countries.” So, lets tank the Apple stock another 3% today. I can’t wait until 1/1/2013 when Obama’s revenge on the wealthy (stock holders) ends! There is a lot of regular pensions that are getting pounded by these idiots.

    1. If you are such a smart trader just short Apple. You can make as much in a falling stock you know. You really do not think everyone is losing money in the market do you? In every trade there is a winner.
