    • Perkins Cove: This is for you chuck...hope you did not follow me. Day trading is tough when one has limited trades available. Such is my case for now.

    • Perkins Cove: I would hope that if I had more trades available per day, I would have seized the $7.00 for a 5.5% portfolio gain. In 15 mins?

    • chuck holladay: Honey bees are few and far between in my neck of the woods makes pollination less productive. Guess I am going to buy two hives.

    • chuck holladay: See if that will help. At my age I don't react well to bee stings. In my thirties I always kept 10 or so hives.

    • Perkins Cove: Flowers only, way too much rain! Over $2000 you should be able to go to a margin account, giving you more flexibility, even if you don't use

    • Perkins Cove: the margin. (3 day trades in a 5 day period) But, more importantly, not having to wait 3 days for settlement.
