    What happened to them?

    I remember a friend telling me that Comm Bank (i think or Com Securities) have a good online selling programme for shares

    They are all good if linked to a bank as it is easy to transfer money. St George has one linked to Etrade I think. Most trades are in the $20 to $30 mark.

    I told Rhino that I was looking at buying more shares in September, but as I watched it all go to hell I stayed out. I'm not going back in just yet.

    Was a good chance for Short Selling MB, if you had the cash it would have been worth the risk. You could have picked up a mint over the last month

    You are right, but I only follow the Sage of Omaha's philosophy - buy quality and hold for as long as the business is sound. Short selling has that touch of desperate greed about it which results in many a man losing the lot. I don't have an accurate crystal ball and for gambling I'd rather back Manly or the gg's.

    sue and vegas are forex traders.  I hope they predicted the aussie's slide!

    I'm going by the maxim of buy when everyone is selling, particularly the afore-mentioned blue chips, and particularly mining blue chips.

    Now we know what you are doing with the $100k that you had left over after you bought Dubbo. ;D

    Yeah I figured shares in Fanny Mays were a better investment than buying Bathurst and Orange.

    what investments are you looking at getting in to?

    Futures, Forex and all that i recommend an american company by the name of Global Futures who go through RCG.

    Domestic shares St George has always been good to me..

    i don't know about local futures, the commission was always too high

    all the blue chips are going to be good value once the slide stops, some better than others and its all about timing.

    good luck to you

    I bank with St George so I've signed up with them using my existing account.

    My main aim here is to become a shareholder in the company who has just granted me a franchise.  ;)
