Fast Money’s Best And Worst Trades

Like we often say in our Quicker Than The Ticker segment, "our traders are good but you knew that. Following are their picks that paid."

And like we also say in our Fast Fire segment, "sometimes a trade is hot and other times is just burns. Following are the Fast Money misfires."

Well, maybe the best way of saying it follows -- here are Fast Money’s best and worst trades of 2008.

Jeff Macke
Best: Getting out of oil
Worst: Long Microsoft

"I rode Microsoft all the way down. Let that be a lesson for you because I can’t do it again for your learning pleasure."
