Life as seen thru a stock trade !

Stock Market never gives rise to rational and idealistic discussions but it always favors who makes rational and realistic decisions. I have been involved in the market for 3 years and i never went short on any stock. When you go long on a stock and make money everybody gains but when you bet against a stock and make money there is someone on the wrong side of the trade. I have always played the long game and managed to stay green. But today for the first time i went short on a company stock called RedHat Linux (RHAT)which sells services around the open source Linux OS. I have been a strong proponent of open source particularly linux for the past three years. In my blog i cheer lead for open source and linux systems. But today i was cheer leading against a company which makes opensource systems run smoother all thru the corporate world and in the bargain i made 600 bucks. I couldn't resist shorting the stock of the company i admire most, when i saw it went up 35% without any strong supporting fundamentals.

I love open source companies but i still rooted against one of them to make some money . As i ask myself these questions

Is this similar to people who work and invest in tobacco companies but in their personal life are anti-smoking?

Is greed just consumed what i stood for ?

I am not sure there is a right answer to all these inner questions. But life unlike stock market gives rise to rational and idealistic discussions and presents a interesting conundrum
