OK, listen up.

 
I've only got two or three days with this computer but I need to know what happened to that baby broker who worked in a bank and declared that the market only goes up because earnings always go up?
 
What happened to Joe da Broker who was using an indy platform on his way to becoming a former stock broker?

Weren't the conditions of your parole to have no internet contact, particularly with minor children?
 
That may be one of the most stupid lines I've ever read.  You mean you will have forever lost the ability to use the internet in 2-3 days?  From what I've learned the internet can be accessed from any computer, not just the one you are currently using.  Unless your boyfriend/cell mate is currently in solitary confinement for a few days and you're using his computer time to ask stupid questions.  I think if I have a limited amount of time I'd be using it for something more productive, like trying to find naked pictures of Ashley Tisdale.   
 
If I am making an appropriate guess, Indyone is doing fine, but since we haven't seen him posting a lot recently I would guess he's busy with clients.  Joe has retired from the posting business these days and is now focusing on building his practice.  I'm sure if he wants you to know how things are going he would have given you his home phone number so you could call him and ask in person.

How is charging clients a percentage of their portfolio working out these days?


I'd figure that they could lose 25% on their own, but I might be wrong.

Only 2 posts today????


I don't believe this is really Putsy. The real McCoy would have put up 25 or 30 posts today.

You're right about one thing...I've been busy, but it's been a good thing...two new accounts...400K & 600K...all fee based at 1%.  I'm also pretty certain that PP wasn't referencing me, as I never said anything so silly as the market always go up, but I'm pretty sure another poster did...quite awhile back.
 
...now to try and figure out who this PP character really is.  I'm having a hard time believing it is Put as it's not quite his style.

Yep and I've also been wondering about the young guys a few months back who argued that a diversified portfolio would be bullet proof and who needs an annuity or any of those expensive guarantees.  So cocksure that the market would always go up or at least not go down.  Unable to imagine a 7000 DOW  much less a 5000 DOW.  Inconceivable!!
 
Buying puts and constructing long straddles are the only thing that is keeping some of my clients from being in the double digit negatives in their entire portfolios.
