The Fast Money gang reveals how to trade amid the turmoil and still protect your profits.
The discipline to sell is paramount in this tape. You don’t have to buy every dip and there’s a time to get out of certain assets.
Jefferies has been hiring when the rest of Wall Street is firing. They’re getting back to basics and I think firms that do that will be the ones to survive.
I’d like to see the Fed a little more involved in some of the bailouts. AIG is too big to fail because they're so tied to Main Street.
Risk premiums in some financials make me nervous. I bought puts in Wachovia because I think they have more trouble coming. Unless you have to be in this market I think the thing to do is scale back.
