Now pick your high price in which you want to sell it. I'm gonna be watching it, too.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

Rather it should be to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand and the Good Book in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO what a ride!"

So did I! With the million dollars of fake money I have to invest for the cnbc portfolio challenge... Shame I don't really have a million dollars to invest laugh.gif Someday.

If you want another bank pick take a gander at STD. Similar price to BAC but with a lot less risk and (I think) better upside.

One thing to note about stocks such as BAC. Institutional holders have to sell at $5.00. That makes for some interesting trading when it gets towards that range. So if BAC were to drop below $6.00 or into the $5.50 range I'd be on the lookout for some very rapid flucutations. Could present a prime opportunity for buying, or it could also signal the collapse of BAC...

I wouldn't have bought BAC at $6 even though I honestly believed it was on it's way up. The company was still being toyed with by the gov and working with a horrific balance sheet. It was obviously oversold but there was also a non-zero chance that it was going to collapse.

BAC dropped 18% in the span of about an hour on a day in early august. It went from roughly 9.00 down to 7.40 before you could blink. It was unexpected, drastic and reeked of something being not-quite-right. If you had bought it at 8.50 with the plan of "don't let it get down to 8.25" you'd have been burned big-time. Unless you have the luxury of being able to trade stocks all day or if you're playing with options and stops. Something that volatile that moves seemingly without purpose and doesn't really have anything going for it other than that it appears to be undervalued just doesn't strike me as a good buy. I wish you luck with it though.

As you obviously know it comes down to picking a time-scale, a desired return and determining the likelihood of that return.


Bl1zz, you wouldn't buy it at $6, but you bought it higher???? blink.gif

At that time I didn't have a million dollars of fake money to invest laugh.gif Far more intent on higher risk trades with fake money than real money. I can't afford to risk real money on something that is just as likely to collapse and fall than get a modest gain...

This is all just a game to me, something to do at work as I can access my Vanguard account here, my 401k is in fixed income paying around 3%, that I don't play with, Roth IRA is for playing, and a new cash account for the house money will be safe in some Vanguard fund (till I spend it on a new pontoon boat, car and TOYS)..... ohmy.gif rolleyes.gif wink.gif

Wish we still had a 'safe haven' for our 401k here. They took it away about a year ago, too many people were 'playing' and actually making money then retiring, I don't think the higher-ups liked it.

Riding the oil wave isn't for the queezy. Been there, done that, what a ride it was!

What site do you use to buy yours? Etrade is the major one I've heard about. I have watched stocks but never really put any money into them. I thought of investing a little bit just so I can learn more about it but not 100% sure where to start.

The hardest part for me was getting over the desire to kick myself when I sold something thinking it was at the peak but then it went up a little more and likewise buying something at what I thought was the bottom only to see it fall a little more laugh.gif If you trust your judgement of picking the peak and valley then you'll stop minding being off by a smidge in either direction at first...
