There's No Inflation in Futurama

August 13, 2009 – Comments (5)

Anyone remember Futurama, the cartoon where a guy gets frozen and wakes up 1000 years later? Funny enough, the dollar is still actually worth something in the show, which takes place after the year 3000. 



Anyone Use Sogotrade?

August 10, 2009 – Comments (11) | RELATED TICKERS: SOG , O

I currently use Fidelity, E-trade, and Firstrade.  I like each of them for different reasons, but I know there are much cheaper options out there.  Here's what I want from my next broker:
1. Cheap trading for unlimited shares.  I only intend to buy and sell common stock -- no options or short-selling.
2. I trade many micro caps, including some OTC stocks.  Hopefully the OTC stocks won't be a problem.
3. Nice All-or-None options.  I like all-or-none.  Fidelity lets you use AON for orders of 100+ shares, E-trade lets you use it for orders of 300+ shares, and Firstrade allows it for any number, except that NYSE and AMEX are not allowed.  I want my broker to allow generous use of AON, as with Fidelity and E-trade.  [more]
