    Still in the "getting used to it" phase. For myself, it's preferable to the old system. ;)

    BSE = Bombay Stock Exchange, oddly enough.

    "Market, limit, and stop orders can be accepted for stock orders (as well as option orders where applicable) at the discretion of the site administrator. All orders for the BSE and North American stocks are executed at the real-time bid/ask prices as provided by our data vendor when placed during market hours. International exchanges other that than the BSE and USA will display a delayed price estimate of the price until 15-20 minutes has elapsed. The transaction will automatically appear in the Trader's Portfolio and Transaction History. "

    Worry more about current portfolio value, I guess... I know how you are about needing something to worry about. ;)

    "Most stock splits, dividends, and other corporate actions reported by the news wires will be accounted for after the markets have closed and prior to the next market opening. These situations may cause account values to be misrepresented until the reconciliation occurs for next open business day."

    I assume divs go to cash and are not re-invested.

    From my time in IT, I can offer that 99.9% of the time, user error is at fault. ;) The other 0.01% is the fault of the guy that used to work here. ;)

    We can set the "contest" part as one year, but the end date can always be extended (I just checked) if people are still interested in continuing on.

    A new one-year simulation would be easy enough to set up next year, and they could both run concurrently.

  • Russia bans food imports in response to Western sanctions [View news story]
    We can disagree on this one... "wide range of food items... from the U.S., EU, Australia, Canada and Norway."

    I missed where it said "western food".

    F,

    Sometimes I just get bored with a stock. Such is the case with (NASDAQ:LNCO). The generous dividend has not been enough to offset my capital losses.

    I'll take break-even and move along on this one. :)

    Interesting. The ban, as stated above, includes "fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, milk and dairy"... That automatically equates with McDonald's, donuts and pizza?

    Long-term dead money makes me hate on a stock, I guess. I'll move the money to a true "set it and forget it" stock like (NYSE:PG) or (NYSE:JNJ).

    Waiting patiently... Watching for my exit on this one - would rather it be sooner than later.
