    Ole Dickie has figured out that if he deletes his post it deletes all responses.
    Shane on you Dickie I never delete a post there is no need to.
    So here is my response to the delete. I'll just pop my reply back up here.
    BTW Dickie won the stuffed Pig contest over on IV. I think he is already in the running for next weeks award.

    From what I see the new board needs a new board it is terrible.

    Talk about settle down at 100 post a day and 99% of no value what so ever.. I will not be reading it and posting little.
    I have better things to do like pulling weeds.
    Still buying and selling though, after all we are in earnings season.

    Speaking of T-Birds back in the early 60's I could have had a 1955 T-Bird for 1500.00 It was black and stick shift. it had rolled & pleated black interior. It had 1955 Mercury station wagon taillight's that was strictly a bolt on and it had Plymouth cone wheel covers. The guy let the repo man get it and I ended up buying a Black 1958 Ford convertible with a white top. BTW I had an uncle that would get a new T-Bird every year and pass the old one down to his sons.

    BTW i told these guys once that Straight4wd has been around. I once had around 30,000 EQIX before the reverse split ( 1 for 30 I think) and then it was around 920 shares You know what it si now. I also likde AKAM around the same time and bought that at around 2.75 and I know in the 4's. Hell I should have held then and went fishing, hibernated or something
    Like Dckie says I'd be Rich. But its been Fun.

    I have been on 2 closed boards The GYRO just like this was moved to closed not for GYRO but for traders it died and I post there ocasionally to keep the lights on. Same for a Raging Bull board I keep the lights on there also.One guy still comes by infrequently. Shame

    Long ago I recall the Bears and Bulls

    It went closed board. Is that still in action?
    Mainly I remember Saw (stratterford or something like that.) I was accepted and not having seen the link on my e-mail I was rejected did not get over to Yahoo e-mail often. I also remember your screen name.
    I used to post on the open board back then. as I recall the reason for going closed was traders posting trade by trade.
    Just wondering.4wd

    Thanks Dickie
    I;ll learn. Just hpoe I have learned to stay away from all etf's
    they all must be gov run as they always run out of our money and do the reverse split thingy.
    Did you know that for weeks UVXY is stated for a 1 for 4 split?

    I am not totally unfamiliar with IV way back and am still a member on Raging Bull.
    Yahoo was the best may it rest in peace.

    the one that can go to the old format and post on the old board. I had simply saved a few of you as favorites and I could click on a link to your post . Now I can go to dickie oar traderjax or sunshine and a few more and when I get to your post I simply click on topics and all the messages past & present show up in the old format.
    I call it the back Door. anyone else do this.
    I find both the new yahoo and investor village to be way inferior.

    Dickie I don't know about Yahoo Classic.
    I am still coming through the back door as I had you TJ and a few as posters to watch and I click on that and your post come up and then I click on topics that brings the old board up. as it was.
    I call that the back door.
    But all in all I have lost a lot of old and good search links.

    everything has changed quotes history stats etc.
    If you click on conversations you get a different deal.
    The only way I see to get to anything resembling the way it was is to check on a poster, then as of yet their post will appear. even your own. Then click on topics or messages as it was and still is and you will be home.

    If you are using a different approach Post It.
    IMO we may loose some posters and yahoo will lose big time overall.

    I come in and nothing is the same I had to use a back door to get here to the message board like in clicking on a poster that I had saved as poster to watch/

    I always kept a portfolio on yahoo and It is non exist or at east I cannot access it. Any message board that I try to get goes to summary with price etc.

    Yet I see nothing of this on the board. Any comments.

    Could we please have a Do Over for the past January .
    I could do wonders with a Do Over.Just playing what I had. As some of you know there was some Nice ones AG being one of them.
    BTW what is in the cards for the so called 2018 2019 metals or commodity run.

    This shirt reads!
    I Can Explain it to You but I Cannot Understand it for You.
    Fridays sells included DGLY & VII
    The DGLY I badly played in selling early but made Money.

    The VII I had an old sell of 2900 shares. The shares were halted. I returned from an appointment and the shares were sold at 1.60
    I had this stock a year ago selling in the 2's and making money.
    I bought all the way down to .72 and it closed on the 7th at .49
    I also sold another lot at 1.14.
    Long story short is I only made 530.00 on the trades. but I sold the most expensive shares and increased my cash position and my port value while reducing my cost avg by .11 per share
    This is why I am So Happy!
