    So, how long do you think it'll be till the goons in the SEC apply PDT to SSF's? Any takers for a pool bet?

    Who cares Brandon? Well I can see why you do, but for me I'd rather talk IDEAS -----> knowhatimean?

    Well....I think I can scrap together $25,001, even if I have to go collect pop cans along the side of the road for the extra $1.00.

    Not at all what I meant Brandon...

    I don't doubt you can scrape up 25large; for all those 2-300$ subscriptions add up...
  10. It would be fun if we could see what will be going on behind the scene the first few days of SSF trading. I imagine there are lots of exchange market maker types ready to add fake trading liquidity to keep the SSFs afloat until the real volume picks up. Should be interesting!!
