altstrat91,

Again, I want to thank you for the wake-up you offered in calling my attention to Amerenergy's bonds. If I show up for work, I can do a competent job in bonds, and I've got no business messing with anything else. No matter how sexy those other things seem, I'd have to work a lot harder, or, worse, I'd get killed, as do 90% of beginners in any field. There's very good reasons why I got out of stocks in '99, namely, I'm not good at them, and their rhythms and risks just don't make sense to me.

But me and bonds? Ah, now, there's a marriage made in heaven. From the getgo, nearly a 1,000 trades ago, I've consistently made decent money, and the bond market has been more than forgiving as she tried to teach me what I needed to learn. How can one abandon such a path merely for the sake of the new or because the debt markets have gotten tough?

"When the going gets tough, the tough get going."

The bond bull hasn't yet died, and there are still opportunities to be found. And now, having put on the position, logged it, and done its writeup, I'm done for the day and can head out and roll some bike miles in the winter crispness.

Charlie
