DTAMP MeltDown

The disaster in Japan has caused a lot of misery for its people. A 9.0 Earthquake, 30 foot Tsunami, Ten Thousand or more people perishing, people suffering without electricity, food, water, heat and other basic essential, Nuclear reactors in a meltdown scenario, the fear of radiation spreading.

Indirectly, I have been affected by the disaster in Japan and DTAMP has as well.

I was in a trade with all the DTAMP funds in the shipping stock "EGLE" before the catastrophe in Japan and the stock dropped giving me substantial loses. I was also in personally in the stock and this was the second big drop I endured since last November. I could not risk any more with the DTAMP funds so I bailed out.

DTAMP had its own Meltdown, losing $517.11 and setting it back for the second time in two years with big stock losses.

It is very discouraging. I sold on St. Patrick's Day. There was no Green to be found only RED!!

Here is the rundown of the equities trade.

DTAMP Equities Plan Report:

02/07/11 - Buy - 1062 shares of EGLE @ $4.13 p/s - Total $4386.06
03/17/11 - Sold - 1062 shares of EGLE @ $3.66 p/s - Total $3886.92

Total (-$499.14) - ($17.97) Fees = (-$517.11)
Net Gain of (-11.76584)% in the Amount of (-$517.11)

There is a long road ahead to rebuild DTAMP. Although my loss is nothing to compare with the poor victims of the disaster in Japan, I can identify, at least in a very tiny way, with the heartbreak of things being lost suddenly.

My heart and prayers go out to the people of Japan in their desperate time of need.

Present Stake:$3981.95
