That's plaintiff lawyer math.

Big-firm defense lawyers are very good at multiplying and dividing by six minute increments.






*Also, Javyn, note that I'm not actually doing any math in that post - just throwing around terms like "boolean" and "data points" like I know what they mean. Knowing a little bit about your professional background, I would have expected you to be less susceptible to such shopworn lawyer tricks. smile.gif

I went ahead and bought TSLA Jan 2015 $30 puts today for $2. Will forget that I own them for a while, and then if Elon goes down in flames in the next 18 months it will be a nice windfall.

SMLP breaks $30 today, and DXJ doing about as one would think. A small percentage of assets, but enough good news to keep me amused.

Yeah, I remembered your saying at some point that you were a paralegal . . .

Interesting up and down day yesterday.  Big Ben loves to shift days with his comments.  This morning I bought the open with the way the markets have been buying dips and sold at the end for a nice 1% gainer on that position.  Should have bought DATA with its big drop yesterday for a nice haul but I am always a little leery on buying recent IPOs.

I'm interested in investing small-time, but I don't really know where to start. Could you guys give me suggestions on what to read and use? Also, I don't live in the US.

start small. only invest what u can afford to lose. have patience. always think about risk as opposed to a pie in the sky mentality i.e. "omg look at broker reports i can make 500% return if i hold it for 3 years"

that is a good starting point.

So fucking glad I fought my financial adviser back around Memorial Day. I had a nice cash position accumulated and he wanted me to buy. Instead I sold 45% of my holdings. Sell in May, go away. Might not be a good call every year but I thought it was this year and I'm smiling.
