Thanks for getting back to me. I may just need to get up a little earlier and get logged in to hold my place. Never worry about spelling with me. I make no bones about it I don't spell very well; I would never call the kettle black. You have obviously somthing going on with other stocks. I do have another ?. Do you ever use your margin? I have once but am not real comfortable with using it becouse of the risk.
Not sure what you mean by "something going on with other stocks". I've a fair number of irons in the fire and nearly all have done well, but I've only bot on margin once, never shorted, never tried options. Was ready to margin again yesterday for a considerable amount to double up, but that particular stock proved "uncooperative" by closing up, and it closed up again today for a total 20% 2-day gain. sigh
re- money.net, I don't think it's a matter of signing on "early". If I can't make a connection within a minute of the java applet starting (i.e., the applet opens but nothing loads), I terminate and try again.
