By the way, I called a broker to set up an account today, with the intention of buying NTDOY. I was told I could trade immediately, subject to the credit check. Sadly, the check came back without an immediate verification, meaning I couldn't trade with this broker until next week.
When I made the call, the stock was still down, and I was ready to trade. I gotta say, missing out on that >8% rise really pissed me off!
Sigh. Shoulda set up the account ages ago, just in case an opportunity like this presented itself.
Why was I keen to buy? Falling yen / Japanese currency intervention, big dow rise. Talk about a no-f**kin-brainer.
