Quick Chat Number 142. Beginning 01/22/2011

Welcome to the Gathering of the Gades! All who venture here for the free exchange of trading and investing thoughts and ideas are welcome!

You are hereby advised to be following the QuickChat I.D., found here, to automatically receive notifications of new QCs and comments by the QC I.D.

If you forget to do that, be sure and look at the end of each QC when it approaches a comment count of ~100 as another will be started around that time and a notification and link to it will be provided in a comment.

Thanks to Lower98th for the efforts on the previous Quick Chats.

I, HardToLove (a.k.a. H. T. Love), am your temporary host for the continuation of the QCs started by OptionsGirl and hope I can do even half as well she and Lower98th have done.

All complaints can be addressed to either the profile associated with this QC or to H. T. Love, temporarily. Unfortunately, like Walmart, we don't have a complaint desk, per se, so you'll be on your own. :-))
