down Not my proudest month. A combination of bad luck and stupidity: ROK’s CFO resigned and caused the stock to drop like a tank, HOG was a gamble at the earnings play. I was also scaling up on OEX puts (Options intelligence picks) with the belief that the market is reaching resistance, but it didn’t and kept on going up. I hate losing, and I’m losing badly in this month (May) too :(… ARGH!
