Re: Woop! Woop! Blue light special

Ok, Brewer, I'm totally lost. I can't tell if you bought it or sold it or if you sold it last week and bought it back this week. Can you give me a simple explanation?

I decided to live dangerously. I bought some Asian currency warrants with a small proportion of the proceeds and left teh rest of it loose to pursure higher return opportunities. I will buy back into GIM when it drifts back to a discount.

Schwab quotes it as aab/ws I was able to buy it under that ticker.
