No, they just took several hours to execute.  I don't know why.  I've had that happen before.  I try not to make trades until the market opens.  That helps a little.

I also see that you have more faith in Victory Energy (VTYE) than I do.  Tongue  I hope something actually happens with that stock.  I didn't do any research--I just looked at the chart and went with my intution.   :Smiley  Maybe you know more than me--?

I've also had trades just disappear on me before. I made the orders last night, and they're not on the orders screen at all.

Afslav is a bastard, and that is all I'm going to say.

I'm not sure if anybody has been paying close attention to my account, but I keep losing hundreds (almost thousands) of dollars each day, and I have to scramble to find another stock to make up the difference.   So far I've been lucky.  Today, Exlservice Holdings Inc  (EXLS) had an IPO.  I bought the IPO (although I was a little little late) and made $1,150, which helped offset the massive losses I suffered in the first few minutes of trading.

Lesson:  once you make a profit, make sure you keep it.

Now I have to try to avoid losing a fortune between 9:30 and 10:00 Monday morning.   Undecided

If MSO goes up any more, I might just have to propose to Martha.  She is single, right?  :-P

You are making money, but you did not buy many stocks.  You still have $99,305 in cash.  You can buy more stocks with that money, if you want.

Yeah, but that is less than a penny.  It will go back up next week.

I'm still waiting for it to hit $0.03 a share.  If I can sell it at 3 cents, I'll have an almost 100% return on my investment.  That's a  big IF though.

It looks like VSE just deleted EZM from its database.  The value of the stock is now listed as $0. 

Ouch.   

EuroZinc merged with Lundin Mining, so I guess there is no such thing as EZM anymore--?

Why not?  You are making money.  Not a lot... but at least you are making a little.  Wink

I was foolish not to buy any stocks today, but I was too busy.  Oh well.  Sad

Shaz, you can reset your portfolio if you want.  The game screwed you over.  You wouldn't have lost that money in real life.
