    One thing I will say about any speculation or what I guess could be considered as day trading.. I have always done it within the confines of an IRA for tax on gains purposes and I use a discount broker that charges just this side of $5 a transaction. That is another important thing to point out I think to anyone reading this thread for advice.

    As the market dives again today? Anyone watching a good company's stock starve until the time is right to pounce? Here are a handful of stocks and exchange traded funds I am watching.

    I actually did buy in yesterday morning when it was up about 1/3 of what it finished the day for.

    But I think its going down before the year is over.


    From 2002 (when I really started trading regularly) until now, I was only really wrong on the market last year. And it was definitely costly that I was not more heavily invested.

    That said, I've been wrong for so long now that it is wigging me out.

    Just take my opinion with a grain of salt cause I'm making educated guesses like most investors.

    If you have money in the market that you plan on spending in the next 5 years you are pretty real gambling

    They have gone up nearly 5% since that post. I dont usually call a shot on a stock like that but GM at the time practically had a neon blinking sign that said "buy me!". They still do really.. they are well undervalued
