Greetings horse,

I am forced to accept the price at that given time(good or bad). I believe I,and anyone, should decide what price they will by an investment at.

Then get a real discount broker and use limit orders and realize that you give up guaranteed execution for price control. IOW, just because you put in a limit order to buy a stock at a specified price doesn't mean it will happen, e.g. anyone think BRK.B would trade at $5/share?

Regards,
JB
