    1998 made $400 KTEL, lost $6k on BAMM


    Sounds like you learned a lot!

    You got more than $6000 worth of learning that November day. Count your blessings...

    Another transaction of mine was that I sold 1500 GSTRF (GlobalStar) short at $55. The broker, a female named Alissa at Scottrade, said that she messed up my sell and put it in 5 minutes later for $57 3/4. She asked me if I was happy that she messed up my order! I said NO!

    Even though the above turned out better economically for me, I was disturbed that my wishes were thrown to the wayside. Why would I be happy that my broker ignored my wishes?

    I knew the stock was about to crash already through my research. The next day it traded at $49-$53 most of the day!

    Those were the days of easy money.
