Overall, the transaction reduced our margin balance by a minimal level of just over $600. Our margin balance is as high as I find comfortable given the vicissitudes that market has…

I am sure that subscribers will recognize that the last few days have seen a rather substantial pull-back in high growth tech names. Some losses have been greater than others.

I will try to make this as short as possible and long as necessary. Some subscribers like my efforts in terms of diction; all subscribers are going to like it better if I can produce profitable picks. I think the recent crash is epochal in nature. I have seen my share of crashes such as…
