With what's going on in Europe

It might be prudent to go ahead and take our profits on the morrow.

Well, it's been a couple of months

But we just checked on INTC, and it's up to 25.05!

25.05 x 400 shares = $10,020.00
+ the $1,221 in cash = $11,241.00.  Just $759 away from being able to buy on margin.

Markets down

Well, the Dow lost over 200 points today; the only company that saw an increase in its share price today was Walmart.  INTC is down to $20 and some change.  We will wait this out for a week or two before dumping INTC and looking for something else, but to be honest, there probably isn't much worth buying right now.

INTC $20.62

INTC chart

Scanning the stock chart for INTC, it looks pretty good.  The stock went higher today on heavier than normal volume.

Re: Stock Charts

We have decided to dispense with making a "weekly price" stock chart for any of the stocks.  It is too cumbersome, and we have discovered the wonders of technical analysis charts that are available on

For instruction on what all the stock chart jargon means, we have been working through the course at, which is a forex (foreign exchange--trading the money of different nations) information website.  We have just reached 5th grade.

Real quick: AXP looks like a buy

Looking at the chart, it looks like AXP may have a break out (cup with a handle pattern, etc.).  On Monday, if it's still strong, this may be our first purchase.
