the best of both worlds tomorrow. I trades srs and started my position in spg. bought in twice under 40 . switched to fas late afternoon and then the damn broke with the annmt from obama. the market turned on a dime. and headed north. spg will have a nice opening tomorrow. i will be taking some short term profits with spg . any time it goes to the 30's its like printing money. dont' believe these idiots who tell you its GGP. Even i can read the balance sheets . one stock is the yankees , the other is the senators. Thrash man

I always saved %10 of my paycheck starting with my first job. few if any of my friends do or did that. looking for a up trend early tomorrow. best of investing to you all Thrash man
