DRYS is a nice chart that shows you an extreme example of the “psychology” behind trades.

ACT I – The short.  Sure, DRYS trades at -1000 EPS (didn’t even know that was possible, not really sure what that even means!)

ACT II – The squeeze.  The bear’s tears float this stock up fast.

ACT III –  The dump.  Profit taking drives this stock down 85% in a day.

If you traded this stock and profited, good for you.  It’s a little too much for my taste, but at least I can watch from the side and remind myself that this market is indeed controlled by bigger powers.
