A little stressed

This week has been stressful for many reasons unrelated to the stock market. Not sure when the stress will ease, but I hope to start posting again very soon. I even have a short guide that I have written up in my time between school and work.

I took a little time to play the fantasy markets on Friday (some of the shares were purchased on Wednesday or Thursday, but only a fraction). Notice the registration date. Yes, that 10.8+% gain took place over the course of a few days (and I didn't even purchase anything in this portfolio account on the first day because I registered after market hours).

In any case, the BPI is rebounding; we've had our first positive week in a long time; and, many hardcore investors are contemplating long positions--while, I say go with whatever works.

As always, be careful and take care.

Get big and win a weekly or monthly prize.

I was looking at the prizes. If you can get 100%+ in a month, though, do you really need to go for the weekly or monthly prizes? =D I mean, I know a ton of people who would bankroll me if I could do that. And getting 100% profit on 100k would be more than enough of a prize for me =)
