The case is still on appeal, and no final decision has been made.

I had the intense desire at a very young age to save and invest my earnings. My father did not believe in allowances. With the money saved from collecting aluminum cans I opened my first Kool-Aid stand at the age of five. I invested some of the profits in a box of saltine crackers which increased sales exponentially. I used those profits to buy a pare of breeding gerbils and began selling Gerbil babies wholesale to the local pet stories for a $1 each by the age of 7. The rest is history...
My name is Chris Redoble and I'm an independent trader. I've been a heavily involved student of the markets for 7 years. I bought my first stock when I was 12 with my father, Mobil before it became ExxonMobil, then went on to purchase shares of Chevron. I've been fascinated by the markets ever since, and I dreamed of one day working on Wall Street. That dream never came true, and perhaps is even more of a dream now post Financial Crisis 2008. That crisis has not changed my passion for the markets. I currently have a full-time occupation which prevents me from devoting my full attention to the trading day, however I trade throughout the day when I have the time. My long term goals are to have my time fully devoted to the capital markets and journalism. Currently, I am developing a website which will be hybrid style site combining in depth market commentary coupled with real-time news and interviews with other journalists and investment professionals. I will be posting my opinions on the market, with detailed technical analysis charts and visual aids.The site will also contain content relating to "News that Matters" to today's society, with a heavy weighting on financial markets. Stay tuned for details as this will be a very big project for me and I plan for everyone to enjoy what it will have to offer. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy my stock picks, and market commentary. For more detailed commentary, visit my blog http://www.buzzworthyus.com or e-mail me at email@example.com
