5% IYY 94.65
2% FEU 38.59
2% AOA 44.81
10% TWCUX 34.55

RBL was my own pick... a Russia ETF
AAPL was a friend's choice....
MM is initials of a friend....
My son's girlfriend had lunch with Warren Buffet recently... I have a picture... so BRK.B
I actually watch pro wrestling... WWE
IYY is just a total market ETF with low expenses
FEU is a Europe ETF... my other accounts have basically very little exposure to Europe..

I'll try for CMG tomorrow but kept typing in CNG so never found it.....
For whatever reason, when I tried to buy CBIS, NTEK, and IPPLF, I kept getting a message saying something like the funds hadn't cleared yet.... so I will try for those again tomorrow. At present I am not being charged any transaction fees, and have a gazillion more free trades available, probably over the next month or so.
Thank you all who made suggestions!

I think you don't know what SPXS is! It is an 'anti' S & P 500 fund. I may buy a gold stock or two, but won't buy any other 'bear' type funds. I own a lot of SPY in another account, and don't want to bet against myself that way... kind of like the doey-don't.

Hot stuff! GTAT waited for you to buy in to take off today. Here is to hoping that past result are indicative of future performance.

If the stock market crashes, he will look like a genius :).



I've seen people look like geniuses if they did what they claimed in cashing out [like late 2007]. Then, generally, they look like fools for not getting back in. And many times they claim they got out early, but it was in fact some really bad time to do so in 2008/9.

WOW, this is some genuinely terrible investing advice. Sounds like a recipe for buying high, selling low, and eating up your return in trading fees.



Yes, it can be bad advice, but it depends. At some point some of the dogs have to go. If you have a mutual fund or ETF either one, they are doing that for you.

I'm fairly sure that CoolMike knows what the SPXS is……I'm also fairly sure you don't know that you don't know that your portfolio's Delta is way out of whack……look up Delta and report back:-)
