Thanks guys, for contributing to my continuing education in investing. I am still a novice at this game and not nearly as nimble witted as I once was. I have had some very nice trading plays, although this year has been an overall bummer. My total portfolio (NAS heavy) is down about 35%. However, I see a lot of upside potential there - ha!
CW - I am very interested in Options, and have a couple of unread books on the subject. For now it is still a very murky picture, and I am reluctant to jump into them until I understand them better. Just need some quiet time to get in some study. The techniques you described look very promising.
huevos - Your description of stops appears well thought out. I assume the "fib #'s" refers to the Fibonacci sequence? By the way, congrats on your recent QCOM plays as described by CW. Very nice moves.
Although DIMD, S3, SBLU stock has been an overall dog for two years, with very few and very brief exceptions, the message board is well above average. Thanks again to both of you for your help.
