Hiding In My Bunker - Dodging Shells From Uncle Sam
No posting today.
I crawled into my bunker this morning and put in ten hours on my Schedule D.
It looks like I made roughly 500 trades in 2008 - or 250 round-trippers, one for each day the market was open.
So far, I don't like the numbers I'm getting. But that doesn't matter as relatively high gains this year will just produce a lower tax burden in 2009.
But try explaining that elementary nuance to the Morons who go frantic trying to find *losers* to sell each December.
