Isn't it interesting, or should I say enraging, that something that is perfectly legal in one state gets you killed "legally" in another state?
I sleep well at night knowing that cops are out there raiding pot dealers' houses and killing them. Such a danger to society.

So for CRRA it says bid (size) of .0262 (30,000) and ask (size) of .030 (10,000). Are these averages to give traders an idea of the spread and the levels of the bids/asks that are out there?[/quote]
They aren't averages, they're either actual bids and asks from traders, or often in penny...

Most brokers won't allow market buys for penny stocks because the spreads can often be very large. You'd get fricked if you did a market order for a penny stock.
A limit order simply means you set a price limit for what you'll pay for the stock. If someone is selling at or below that price limit t...

After further review it looks as if the "protect and serve" motto originated with the LAPD and was adopted by many other departments. But you are correct it is not an official motto.
