You two are living life all wrong. BP gets $9k for a one day meme trade and you’re quibbling over which cheap shitty monitor to buy.

Today is the day you should buy the widescreen monitor of your fucking dreams and you don’t even look at the price tag.
lol. Tendie man also still needs to provide a video card. Still running a 980ti.
Mark Cuban built a shitty dotcom that he flipped to some idiots 20 years ago and has been coasting on that for 20 years. He's been wrong on just about everything and knows fuck all. He probably realized this early on and thats why he bought a basketball team to guarantee income
Hes also just a retarded asshole in general.
They're actually very good monitors that aren't a lot of money. They blow anything you could buy 2 years ago for 600+ away.

There's still a lot of problems with using ultrawides that are solved by just having 2 or 3 regular widescreen monitors.
I ended up going with the LG.

We have been discussing adding an investing section like we have for the guns, which could give us an easy way to do stuff like this. Just not sure how much the current interest is going to last.

Its a very worthy cause. A lot of us were guided by this very thread this past 12 months as we moved from the old index funds passivity to more active. And its paid off judging by the thread.

I think that would be fantastic.

For those of you with 401ks in Fidelity who moved them to BrokerageLink...

BrokerageLink says all my money is ready to trade, but when I try to transact anything it says “the account specified in this order is restricted.”

When you look at the account overview it says “pending activity, +$xxx,xxx amount I transferred.

You think this is a case of it’s still caught up in transfers despite the fact it says money is available to trade, or do they have restrictions on what you can buy in BrokerageLink as per plan rules? Gonna be lame if it’s the latter.

Might have to call them, was just curious if anyone experienced this. I know everything is backed up to hell.

This happened to me. You have to call them to get it unlocked.

Fucking meme stock won't even get back to my 50% number. Keeps going right under. At this point I may just say fuck it and hold (and yes, the difference between losing $501 of $1000 vs $499 is completely insignificant, but I want it!).

On the plus side, the broader market is crushing it this week. My end of January number kind of sucked because of the shit last week, but the last day and a half more than makes up for it. We may hit our retirement number before the summer.
