Poor Jim Rogers

Ouch!! He might be taking a bath on the Refco scam.

Fascinating. I came within a whisker of investing in that fund ... When they were finally licensed to sell here, I received a prospectus, but as I recall, there is a very large front-end load on that fund.

Re: Poor Jim Rogers

I like Charles came close to investing in Roger's fund. The front-end load was 5% and there were too many restrictions on when you could sell, so I passed. Thank goodness!

I do listen to Roger's advice, but usually fail to take it. On the start of the Iraq war, he stated "someone is going to make a lot of money on oil". Seems so obvious now.
