Wow. Those Ford stocks ballooned in value from the dirt cheap price I paid for them. I wonder if I should sell and lock in the gains, or hold on to them for longer.

That's more than two hundred percent gain.  Worth locking in. Maybe sell 300 of them on the next up day. 

Of course Ford could fall like a stone for whatever reason on Monday.  I'm getting more and more convinced that trading is nothing more than gambling with an alibi.

I just got an email stating that the game has been deleted.  What gives?

Same here.  I'd moved up from next-to-last all the way to 6th, too!

I didn't get the email but the game isn't there.  Terrible!  I was just turning things around.

It definitely happened with in the past 24 hours, I'd say.  I just got the e-mail within that period, and I am fairly sure I'd logged to wildly speculate research close to that period as well.

I guess I shouldn't be too disappointed, two of my stocks totally tanked - I fell to next to last.  :D

Yea sorry about that guys. Was attempting to delete a different game and didn't realize I was deleting the SGU game.

If there is still enough interest I'll gladly start a new game. Also, if someone else feels comfortable taking over then I'm all for that.
