Any recommendations for virtual trading. I need to study up and practice.

OptionHouse looks good and their real trades are only $4

Can you share some specific examples?

I am in same boat as Skinny Goomba, I feel like when I do this I just end up making less on a trade.

Ugh, P&G. Nice results out of CVX and I'm happy to finally see a nice week out of the market.

You would imagine people learned their lesson in 2000.

I guess I didnt. Bought that piece of shit GRPN at 24 and dumped at 19. Its at 11 now.

ZNGA is another one. Its at 1/2 its all time high and it will likely be $3 in a year or 2.

If you are stuck in this dog wait for the FB ipo hype to kick in and see if you can release your purchase in the 10 to 11 range. If news starts to improve you might get 12. But I think the smart money knows this stock has no legs and will likely never see 15 again.

Salvation could be a buyout by FB if the shares dip further.
