Default Risky in Iraq, stockramer

Hi, pretty new to trading. I did the whole virtual trading for about a year and really enjoyed it. Now I'm in Iraq with nowhere to spend money so I started trading about a month ago. I don't mind takeing risk on small pennystocks. It is actually kind of fun! Plan on spending most of my down time here learning the market and makeing some trades. This seems like it will be a good site to put in favorites.

Default Warm and Fuzzy

The virtual definetly gave me the warm and fuzzy but I know there is a lot to learn. Assumption is right. In the Army ( Infantry). I like the quote you have. Something to live by. Any advice for good research. Or educational books/sites to help me out?

Just reading this & whilst my response has nothing to do with money or trades - I am sure I shall be forgiven in saying Good Luck for a safe tour in Iraq to you both.
