1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    FYI- stocks take 3 business days to settle. I think it's an SEC rule where brokerage firms have to settle up within 3 days. Some places let you still trade with cash that hasn't settled. I trade through my Merrill Lynch/BoA account and I can trade with money that hasn't settled. I just can't trade in excess of my cash in my brokerage account plus unsettled trades for obvious reasons.

    Thanks! Makes sense. I used Scottrade and seemed to never be able to use unsettled funds that I remember. I tried and it yelled at me but that could have changed.

    I just picked up a few new positions, trimmed some others and added to some that still have upside potential... let's see how 2014 plays out :slayer:

    The story was saying that since SC didn't get "direct" inside info(that the gov't could verify at this time), he is not going to jail(at this time.)

    When you're ready to start trading you might want to take a look at Interactive Brokers.

    https://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/main.php

    Oh and you're gonna want to be a lot more diversified.

    Then why do you have a temporary position to ride the bear market?
