Imagine, a whole week of 2011 gone by and not one inquiry about trade date vs settlement date. Fools are paying attention or looking first and asking second.

Now for my annual plea. It's a small one, but you can't imagine how much it helps. From now until April 19, please ban "last/this/next year" from your posts. Always use numbers. It's hard enough to keep up with Congress without having to figure out from context what tax year we're talking about. Thank you in advance.
