If I change my name I think I'd just go with the symbol for Pi. Everyone likes Pi, right?

I then put a sell order in IF if got back down to the 20% number as a safety net. I watched it longer and bailed on it at 29%. It kept going up BUT I was content with a 29% pop on a 5% expectation. It's like going to pick up a blind date and realizing you have twin cheerleaders. Sometimes it just works out.
So what trading facility do you favor for placing conditional orders, etc?

That's from some sixties movie but I can't remember what it is right now.

Fuck all the other blather; there is no money anyone, anywhere can afford to lose.

That will change once you're actually risking something. Trust me on this. In the land of make-believe there is no second guessing, no self doubt, no shaken confidence, no psychological repercussions from taking it on the chin once in a while. Risk introduces an element of fear that trials cannot consider.
