If I'm not mistaken, you all sound pretty smart to me so far based on your comments.

Cheers,

P.S. Oh, but keep in mind that I've only posted twice so far, so I could be wrong!!!
The there is an inverse relationship here, between post counts and being right. Enjoy being right - it won't last.

I can attest to that! My post count is pretty high, but I am not often right. That's OK - - I'm here to learn.

If it were only true "fast money free". Unless they are sending hundred dollar credits to my account, why bother with the drivel?

it's the only show i like other than Quack Box on there because the hosts don't just tell you to buy. Kudlow is pretty good, but he got boring back in 2007 and 2008 when the only thing he was saying was goldilocks as the market started to collapse. Too bad Cramer has his own show, when it was Kudlow and Cramer it was worth watching

quack box does have Becky Quick which is a big plus. i used to read her stuff when she was a reporter for the Wall Street Journal.
