For extropians participating in a local EIGs (Extropy Investment Group) or
investment discussions on the list, I have to say, today was a hair-pulling
day. Not because it wasn't evident that the stocks were plummeting, but
because I was making trades just when it was announced:

"NEW YORK -- Given the orderly pace of things, no one is calling it Black
Monday yet. But the dramatic decline in Wall Street so far today has caught
everyone's attention -- especially after the New York Stock Exchange put the
brakes on all trading at midafternoon."

It was midafternoon when I tried retouching that dial to put a hold on a
trade. I thought it might be better to get up at the crack of dawn and see
what the numbers are tomorrow morning. It is quite a heart-beat when the
lines are busy and the clock is ticking and you don't know whether the trade
has confirmed or not.

It is said that stock is a thrill - a roller coaster ride at times like
this. I surely felt it today.

Thanks to James Rogers and Peter Voss for giving solid investment advice
during this vulnerable time: "Now is a good time to invest."
