    Question from hijklmnap BX @ 30.24

    I am very small investor and have more than one brokerage
    Here are some trades on BX.

    The trades did not appear on Yahoo, it shows

    Date sold…BX….Shares….price 30.25…Amount fees settlement date

    I can’t see how it will make a difference. I am trading against others and have no clue, who is ahead of me.

    hijklmnap If you want to silence the critics, post your actual buys and sells in real time so we can see that you're a winner.

    I tried a few times to put the actual trades, after a minute it disappears.

    • Of course you couldn't post your real time trades over the weekend because the markets weren't open. That's one of the dumbest excuses ever.

      I never claimed to be a winner or loser (and I wouldn't believe anyone's claims about their prior results - anyone can type up a "confirmation".) I'm just someone who comes here for intelligent discussion. There are currents in the economy (tapering, possible economic recovery, budget impasses, etc.) that will affect BX, and the company has its various businesses. All of these will affect the stock and the market overall. I have my own thoughts about them, and it would be valuable to read other people's perspectives.

      Unfortunately, it looks like they are right; your posts are just copy and past jobs from somewhere else, and then you make some vague statements to make it sound like you know what you're talking about. If you really know what you are doing, then your posts would have value. One way to show that is to post your actual thoughts and analysis. I don't need to read cut and pastes; if I want to read that person's thoughts, I would read them.

      If you can't think or don't want to post your thoughts, but still want to give advice, then post your trades in real time to prove that you know what you are doing. It's not surprising that you refuse to do so because that would subject your "expertise" to too much scrutiny. Your insistence on posting other people's thoughts as if they were your own and refusal to show your own "expertise" demonstrate your insincerity.
