Note on setting daily goals: Better to trade with the market rather than setting daily goals. I am finding that on sideways days and days that I really don't like the market activity, it's best to just stay put (there's nothing wrong with sitting out and waiting for better opportunities.....cash is always good and hasty goal induced decisions/losses are not!)

Last week, I found TK to be difficult to short with.  I missed out on several good trades because TK was unable to find shares.
