Meet my New Stockbroker

14 May 2006 /

I’m looking at my brokerage account on the laptop, with my son, age 12, watching over my shoulder.

“I know your account number,” he says, reading it off the screen.

“I’m not sure how that’s going to help you,” I say.

“I can hack in and trade stocks,” he says. “‘It’s going up! SELL! SELL! SELL! SELL! SELL! Now it’s going down! BUY! BUY! BUY! BUY! BUY! It’s going down some more! SELL! SELL! SELL! SELL! SELL!’ It’s a trading frenzy! . . .”

    Maybe your kid can help me…because all I’ve been screaming the last three days during this pullback is HELP HELP HELP ! And if my stock-picking ability lately is any indication of my abilities, he’ll be yelling SHORT SHORT SHORT !!! after seeing my picks.
