9/9     Tax question: I have lots of long-term capital gains and some
        short-term capital losses. I'd like to use the losses to offset
        the gains. However, since the long-term cap gains rate is lower,
        should I wait until I have some short-term cap gains to claim the
        loss? (I have no short-term cap gains right now.)

5/9     I'm stock newbie. Let's say  I made $1000 in Jan 2012 and then
        lost  $1000 in Feb 2012, does that mean I'm not liable to pay
        any tax given that I made $0?
        \_ Yes.

11/21   Forget about the top 1%.  The real target should be the top 0.1%:

10/24  If I trade my 401K stock on a quarterly basis (reshuffle/reallocate),
       are the gains considered capital gains?  How much is taxed on 401K gains?
       \_ You don't pay taxes on your 401k until you withdraw it.
          \_ Plus you can re-invest your gains again and again without being
             taxed first.  E.g. if you invest $1000 and gain $100, you can
             re-invest the whole $1100, without being taxed on the $100 first,

2/9     motd finance whizzes, if the total value of CDS last year was
        62 trillion, and now it's basically worthless, does that mean
        somewhere, somehow, someone collectively has lost 62 trillion?
        thanks
        \_ Yup.  Somehow, somewhere, $62T of money just went with the
           wind.  And what's more, if people suddently decide that CDS

12/12   Make sure you buy stocks today. You can thank me later. I am
    looking at UYG and DIG, but you might have your own favorites.
    Markets are overreacting to the auto bailout.
        \_ 1% down? DOW is still above 8000 S&P above 800.
           \_ I bought UYG at open for 4.79. It is 5.16 now.
              DIG opened at 28.01 and is now at 28.82.
