i wrote this in public, if you didn't have balls to hold $3, you won't hold it next time either. gota remeber the last 3$ was the second time it was around 3$. not the first. lol. if we do get that lucky again, i hope you guys don't need a 3rd demonstration of "400% gains" to learn you need to buy on bottom break. lol.

I got a nice schwack of GNW at $2.20 after Lattes said the following in my skype window sometime in late March:

"it is VERY rare that I will ever say BUY BUY BUY, but if I do take some type of position"

That got my attention! Gooo GNW.

Insurance / reinsuarnce broker here ---------- not on life companies, but anything else, hell I know more than any press release or Google find. Loads going on in the market. People moving all over the place. Market rates are up - great.............. but no client can afford it. You add the fact that many large clients are BANKRUPT thats one insurance contract that fails.
Moral hazard is through the roof, small claims are on the up as people claim for lost watches, restaurant fires, and that trickles up to the big business. Reinsurers will do well as insurance companies are forced to buy it, but insurers may get a wobble. Multiple US companies, such as Essex, are coming off everything. Their profits will be dire.

Broking firms - if you can get one cheap - will pay you well though as vs the dismal year before things are on the up. UK ones even better as we trade USD and we are getting like 30% better returns on the currency alone.

haha! i'm glad. lol.
i just need to grow balls of steel to short. lol. then i'd really be making $_$. it'd be like one of those crazy virtual accounts where i'm doing like 1-5M every month. haha. lol. my intuition works pretty well, but I just don't have the balls to play the short side cause its sorta like margin. you can potentially lose it all. i don't even want to play with the thought of losing my money + more. haha. the only thing i'm 100% sure about is that sonner or later the market is 10000+ and everything that's survives is up atleast 100 to 10,000%. lol.

the really cool part i like about considation in markets is that the surviviors got great potential to go even further than where they were @ before.

good luck man. everyone needs balls of steel towards the upside. lol. (margin & shorting are the only things everyone should be cautious of)
