well... the fat boy drug got turned down.. dang, I had high hopes of losing weight too.. OREX, VVUS are in the same boat... both worth watching imo OREX could fit somewhere in my long term plays after it settles. Stock picks are texted out..

I am having a lot of distractions, and am trying to plan so that I could stay in most trades overnight or longer, if I have to. It is hard right now on some days to follow the room. Contractors, etc, often. I have discovered they like to show up between 9 and 10.

Thanks GEM for the info I can appreciate your time crunch I am trying to assess the advantages of whether to hold overnight or for longer and what might be the advantages or disadvantages It seems that the strategy we use in the chat works very well for day trading if applied properly and diligently, but sometimes I am not always able to trade every day and I am trying to look for something that will allow me to trade successfully at those times however I think it is inappropriate to discuss it in the chat room as I feel the chat room should be mainly reserved for day trading . Thanks again for your time and info. If you have any ? shoot me a message.

As had occured in Germany, brokerage houses will be forced to raise their transaction fees as was the case when Bourse bought Eurex,the derivative exchange. Fees for both listings on the exchange and costs of transactions went up dramatically. I believe they went up in the 15-20% range. They also insitituted more restrictions on dealers and retail customers.
Whle your article did not indicate these tings, you will hear about it in the days and months ahead as regualtory approvals are sought.
