Hey guys,

I have been thoroughly impressed with the posts here! I've been watching a few days now and decided that I should do more than just read posts, I should join and start contributing too.

I'm currently just over a year experience, mostly investing in solid companies that look to be on the cheap. Since I started Jan 08 I managed to make some money going into Sept-Nov when things shit the bed. After that I was buying into BMO, GCE and ECA for the ride back up. I'm now sitting with more money than I started with and the TSX, S&P and Dow are still down significantly. Seems like things are going well.

Anyways, as I've been paying attention to the large volatility, I've found trading to be more and more of a draw. Why not make money of that 20% intraday swing right?

So far trading hasn't held any big wins for me, but this forum is a great resource and I'm hoping for that to all change.

Oh yeah, found out about this while looking for a more active, more complete resource than google boards.

Glad you're aboard BigP! You're right about the nonsense that sometimes pervades the Google boards...we don't do that here at all.
