Hey - I'm sitting on +50% gains on FMCC and FNMA again. Is it possible that the run-up today is people covering short positions, or is this actually rebounding?

Give me your opinions - then I'll do what Flea tells me to.

Hell it's worked so far.

//edit: As in, when the stock went pink, short positions carried over or no? I'm kind of an idiot.

You ain't going to get hurt with penny stocks. Or rich, despite what is advertised. Keep playing and have fun - learn from the splits and the penny ante game. THIS is where you should have started! Just remember - today's plus is Thursday's bomb and the next week's score

Re: real money - get out of everything (except what you need to keep in to not be taxed - or just pay 3 grand) and put that cash in a jar. There is no such animal as "long term investing" anymore and you may be surprised in 5 years how strong having CASH works

(hey! wind back the clock 5 years and remember when I told you to buy gold. You coulda owned me!)

Speaking of cryptic, when I do the final edits on my will, is it socially acceptable to have both of yers delivered c.o.d.? I'd hate to be gauche

As long as we aren't talking about 6 ft concrete Elvis statues, I'm sure that's fine.

Thinking of stocks, are there any decent websites or programs available that simulate trading and buying/selling stocks? I wanna try the stock market but not use real money, kinda like those non-money training poker sites.

I guess I'm kinda chicken to invest real dollars in the stock market.

Agreed that it is just the government trying to lure in suckers to the markets at this point, but, is the $ going to have any real value in 5 years? Especially if the Chinese decide to go Fuck it, we're going to dump just to screw you over royally.

Which begs the question - why is the rest of the world walking around with our money?

One would think 20 years of isolationism is the answer
