I had one small lot (one bond) that I was just a bit too nervous about, due in part to a post from this board.

I bought it at 84, was valued at 97, so I figured a bird in the hand is worth more, so I wanted to take my gain while i had it.

So I sold it through zions. First day, I got a bid of 92...I passed.
2nd day, i got a bid of 90....I passed

Today, third day, I got a bid of 95 and took it. Hey, $50 is $50.

Moral: If you don't like the bid, wait another day, its likely to change, hopefully in your direction.
