    Told ya so

    For your information, my friend, traders have made more money on the ups and downs over the last 3 months than in any other period over the last 20 years.
    So you go right ahead and "invest" in solid companies like Enron, Worldcom and Adelphia while we have fun and make money using the frailties of a gullible crowd who believes that big names make big profits.
    If you're old enough you may remember the New York Central Railroad, Eastern Airlines, Pan Am, American Locomotive and numerous other companies that died of atrophy shortly after being declared indestructable.
    Make money on swings in stocks and markets because "investing" is passe.
    And if we are the "worst sort of speculators", so be it. We're drowning in profits and helping the US Treasury with short term gains taxes.

      Prove it.

      Show me where I said I was or am investing in any of those companies...

      You're too presumptuous to assume I don't take profits along the way. As a matter of fact, your trading speculation is as presumptuous of what you think I own and where I do and don't take profits.

      You're tunnel vision is preventing you from realizing that all investors are traders, but so-called traders like you call yourself just makes you think your less "passe". But your not.

      You keep paying those commissions and playing with chart trends. While I'm out on the back nine, you can keep sweating over your keyboard and chasing your pennies...

      • Dollars, my friend, lots of dollars and not pennies.
        You have fun chasing that little white ball on the back nine while I cruise the intercoastal waterway and fish off Boca Raton on my 34 foot boat after leaving my Town Car at the dock.
        Prove it you say?
        The bank accounts say it all.
        P.S. I spend a total of about 1 hour a day at the keyboard. Pretty good compensation. Just remember that those Wall Streeters making billions are not investors, they are traders.
        Enough said, the fish are calling me.
