    A little advice for small investors

    Far be it from me to tell anyone when they should sell, BUT. When you sell small amounts of shares, like less than 1,000, at market, you agree to accept whatever the BID price is at the time. The last several days I have noticed small sellers taking the BID price when there are virtually no bids available. This happens frequently on thinly traded stocks. So this morning at 9:37 the last trade was $27.58 and the bid was $27.53. Someone sold 100 shares at market and took the price to $27.53. Someone bought 12,000 shares right at the open for $27.71 so why are you selling at $27.53 seven minutes later. Now at 9:48 the price is back up to $27.71. The volatility on this stock is a little high due to misunderstanding on the recent earnings statement. It shouldn't be. But, the put to call ratio is at .87 so there are some people that have a vested interest in having the stock go down. Don't help them by using market orders when you want to get out. EEP is not a traders stock anyway. So if you don't get in for the long term you're wasting your time.
