Hi all,

Here is the first report on how the BMW port and the Tracking port have been performing since the first purchase, 4/6/04. I will try to post this every couple of weeks or so.

If there have been any other buy decisions as a board, please let me know. As far as I can tell, only NOK has been purchased.

Ground rules as set in #147, modified a bit.
1. $100,000 starting (modified later from the initial $10,000).
2. Tracking port equally divided between total stock, large cap, mid cap, small cap index funds.
3. BMW fund holds large cap index fund in lieu of cash. Must sell to raise cash to cover limit orders.
4. Cash dividends paid into cash balance.
5. Fund distributions reinvested in fund (as allowed by Vanguard).
6. Commissions are $10.99 for market or limit orders and $17.99 for no load funds (Ameritrade). This differs from BMW's $8. For comparison, Firstrade charges $6.99 market, $11.99 limit, $19.95 no load funds. If anyone can best this (without using Freetrade), please let me know and I'll switch and re-caclulate (not that it's going to matter much).
