Over Two months ago I Bought 1000 sh. BEAS at 17.03 and watched it tank to 15.15 and back to 18.15 where I bailed only to watch it shoot past 20.00

This sucsessful transaction was my 5th trade all positive for a total gain of 3500+ . every stock has gone down after I bought and I have not learned to set my stops.

I bought BRIO and went on vacation If I had been watching I was up another 3500 within 4 days. However I am now down 1500 and waiting for the rebound. Maybe I will learn from the members of this board. I have read many post that give me good advice that I have yet to heed.

I bought 5000 sh. of INSP from full service broker I figure that I paid an extra $642 for the service (over what Scottrade would have cost)
A G Edwards will lose some of my busness. This stock has also gone down since I bought OH WELL!!! Im hanging on for the Bottom has been reached (I HOPE) and we are just bouncing on the bottom.
