I'm rather disappointed to see GG shutting down as well, but on the other hand, I'm sitting on about an 8% loss on my GG portfolio after having been in for a year.

I'm not to sure that MDP is the way I want to go right now. It's more money that GG and it doesn't look like it's exactly providing stellar returns for an expensive service. I do like the idea of a real time portfolio -- the problem with a lot of MF services is that they find some great buys, but rarely issue a timely sell. In the rare cases where they do, it's often after a stock has seen over 50% drop from the buy recommendation.

For now I'll probably keep open a few of my GG positions that I think have very good long term prospects and that I think I can monitor on my own. The others I'll take my lumps and get out in the next couple of weeks. I'll take a bit more of a look at MDP, but frankly for a "best of the best" portfolio, it doesn't look that inspiring right now.
