Worked for others for many years. Enjoyed it until I didn't. Had enough money put away to hold me a couple years. Bought a service business, built it up, sold it. Married that business. Worked 360/365 days the first year. Damn near killed me but nearly doubled the business in 2 years, sold it.

TD Ameritrade is a good place to start. Pull them up online and see how to set up an account. Minimums are pretty low.
PS: Do you really mean "options" or straight stock trading? Either way TD is a good place to start but options trading will require it's own approval level....

Yes, and this is a recurring theme. Not an easy placement I'd bet. And no, St. George "seceding" will not fix that for BR. But, it would have a much better chance of fixing it for SG.

Well, Brazil has had a rough economic summer causing some unrest amongst the locals. So, risk is aplenty. Sales have been flat. Is it time to turn? Maybe yes, maybe no. The bad news appears cooked in. I say it's up from here. Just an opinion....

It has been dropping steady since mid-October. Hard to think it can go straight down. Obviously not impossible. If simple chart analysis could predict future performance, we'd all be on the same side of the bet. I like mid $18 as support but It broke through $18.30 today. Starting to hurt.

I own a residential lot someone is offering to purchase that could net me a couple hundred thousand. My AGI is over the $250K threshhold of the new Obamacare (Medicare) tax. So does this generally mean I will owe 3.8% on any net proceeds from the sale of the property? ...
