Re: Habits of People With Excellent Credit Scores

I smoke and drink ... those are my habits (and yes, I have excellent credit ... but probably a shorter life expectancy).

Re: Building a Portfolio

I hate that we cannot edit posts.

What I am also trying to say, above, is if you were to invest fewer dollars to supplement each month, say $50 instead the $200 used in my example. Your total investment after 12 months would have only been [more]

Re: Building a Portfolio

You don't want to pay too much to the broker in fees. Minimize where possible. If you are buying for the long haul then make sure your initial investment fees are no more than about 2% (buy & sell fees) of your investment. Each time you add to [more]

Re: subscription costs

Where do I find the subscription cots for each MF service?


I am not sure MF sells cots, but you can definitely get better pricing and service at Walmart, Target or JC Penny's.

Re: CoolTrade Robotic Stock Trading

Same applies to the MF subscription services ... if they were really that great they would not need to sell subscriptions.

Re: DEFLATION?

It is not the current intention of the Fed to raise rates as a knee jerk reaction. They will probably raise the rates this year, but they will ease us into it (baby steps).

Re: Free Riding Handicap

Quill,

I never heard of the $25,000 limit before, I will check into that. I can buy/sell and use the money to buy again the same day; however I cannot sell again until the 1st transaction clears 3 days later. It sort of forces the 1/3 [more]

Free Riding Handicap

I do not have nor really want a margin account, but I am getting more and more frustrated at opportunity lost. I am constantly being handicapped in my earning capability by the 'free ride' regulation. You would think in this day and age of computers [more]

Re: Form 709?

I hope you gave the money to her with 6 checks of $9000 each ... transactions of less than 10k are non-reportable and then hopefully she deposited them as separate transations.
If not, then yes, you will need to go through the whole gift tax [more]

Re: NCR

Quill, I'll have to get more automated with my technicals, for now I just browse manually to rule out from my initial watch list scan.

Re: manage portfolio

Ummmm.... they would be using YOUR money to manage THEIR portfolio. Have you witnessed the performance on their recommendations first hand?

Re: Mac Donalds

Mom,
While you ponder that question, buy a few thousand worth of HA tomorrow morning (currently at $25.90). Sell HA next Friday morning by around 10am.
Then ... ask yourself the same question about McDonalds.

Re: NCR

Not showing a 3rd confirmation on the buy. Wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole. In the past year this stock has not had a SCTR over 50, currently it is 22.3 (major red flag). If a stock's SCTR is below 70 (I prefer 90+), I avoid it all together [more]

Re: Winner in 11 mo.

If this is for real money then by limiting the wager to just "the one", you both are losers in the bet, as you both lost your potential to making a lot more money.

The idea of investing/trading is to make as much money as you can. [more]
