I like hearing positive changes in peoples lives. Whether it's money, health, the type of beer someone's brewing etc., it's only relevant to the person it concerns. It's a matter of different personal interest's whether they do or don't appeal to an audience.

If one of my damn sores healed and I would be able to get out of this bed, I think some people would be happy to hear it, even though it's only relevant to me.

I could honestly care less about stocks, but I'm happy you're happy. Boast away, Cat.

Agreed.
I hung out here long after my Axiom purchases because I felt I actually got to know people and they became virtual friends. Now I have even met more than a few in person and consider them among my real friends.

You don't get to know people by only discussing technically relevant items. It's the humor and diversity of the regulars that keep me posting and not drifting off to my next crazy, product research.

This is not a flame to Peter. I consider him a friend also. Just expressing an opinion.

"Diversity keeps spacetime from getting stuck heading straight towards the inevitable disaster, giving us time to concentrate on the next inevitable disaster."

((For those of you who are waiting for me to acknowledge 'The Doctor' as the blame for that quote, I'm afraid I have have to take the credit this time. Although, I'm sure it was Doctor inspired.))

Your quote sounds like the current situation with the stock market.

I'm glad to hear when others are doing well too... but this thread, in my opinion, seems more like a forum for bragging and when others are having a hard time in this economy, I think it's in better taste to be humble of one's good fortune.

Yup. I think so too, bud. But most, if not all of us are guilty of it. There's no difference between any of the many threads or posts about peoples fancy new purchases (computers, exotic cars, beautiful houses), and someone posting their excitement when their doing well in the market. It's technically all bragging (NOT with any ill intent), and it's all good fortune. Just in varying degrees and tastes.

There's been dialogue amongst forum members in this thread, and I assume a lot of it was valuable. With exception to one post I've seen that was objectionable, I don't think there's a "rubbing it in everyone's face" theme; but that's just me. If there is, then that's definitely not cool.

BTW, I loathe the whole market and trading charade, so I'll obviously take a new car thread over a stocks thread any day smile.

For me, it's my foreseeable future job in retirement. One that I've chosen, because I think it will provide the best standard of living after looking over all of my other options. Especially, if I end up jobless. Better to trade the market than end up homeless as well. If I had started saving early in life, things would of been different. But now I have to plan on how to support myself with much less than an optimal retirement amount. And be able to live adequately and not as a pauper.

The key here is experience and passion in order to make this work. Most people find the market boring. I can't afford to do that. Trading is now in my blood and it's hard at times, not to get excited about it. Especially when I can see some light at the end of the tunnel.

I expect comments about how most traders don't make it. That's true, only about 10% will make it. That's because the other 90% don't have years of practice first. They trade by emotion and don't follow a good set of rules. I've spend a good many years losing money in the market. I know the risk. You have to take as much gamble out of each trade as possible. Don't go for the big gains. Always settle for the steady and more sure smaller gains. (But not too small. CD's don't pay much.)

For anyone that's interested at all in stocks, check out EGAN eGain Communications Corp. It's a cloud computing commerce company that's based in California. I bought some yesterday. It looks to have a huge upside potential. (Knock on wood.)

Has anyone looked at DDD (3-D systems)?

I've converted 77% of my 401k over to an IRA, and bought some DDD. Have to keep a close watch on it, because don't want to get caught in any quick down drafts there. But this is a stock I call a parabolic. Straight up for the past 6 months. Looks like it still has some room to grow.

I haven't really been active in recent years... Another stock that has been successful for me is gpc, they are a parts supplier for automotive stores.



When i was in the military, some of the guys would ask me what to invest in. I had no problem telling them what i bought. However, i would never discuss the number of shares that either i had, or how many they could afford. I wanted to keep the $$ private, as that can be a sensitive issue for some people.
