Big lesson learned: Check the damn economic calendar for the coming week!! The 1st of many lessons if you survive my friend. Take some time off. Let it get out of your head. Then you'll be ok.

I think this is thin ice. This stock could very well be another JSDA, FSLR, CROX. The list goes on of stocks that you could've made 10x your money if you had just rode the trend, but everyone was shorting. Or it could gap down to $1.00 tomorrow.

If I own an option of a stock that issues a dividend, then I have to pay that, right? So, if I sell my option, do I need to sell it before the Ex-Date, payable date, record date or declaration date?
