What is the greatest gain you have made as well as the greatest loss? Name it in $$$,
%%%, or however you want.

I have lost 100% and gained 50%... but I haven't been doing this a long time.

Have any of you ever made six or more figures on one trade???

I bought ICN 200@$7 five months ago.I sold
options twice 2@.65=130 & 2@2.60=520. Closed today @ 23.92 and moved from NASDAQ to NYSE VRX. I feel like I got a tiger by the tail. It was one of my early trades in a larger stock.
LOSS Don't remember symbol only circumstance
Bought ??? 200@$13. A week later Extremely bad news came out I sold immediately and lost about 10%.
I diversify into many stocks and do not have many or large losses, also don"t have many or large gains.
I have a formula that takes me out of a stock once I have a 10% gain and the stock has retraced to 16%.

LOL! Actually the name is for a fantastic orange flavored milk shake sold at Foster's Freeze... tastes like those orange popsicles with vanilla ice cream in the middle

Thanks for sharing your data! I hope to someday switch my stats to a gain of >1000% and a loss of <1%!!!!
