So my brokerage just informed me that my account qualifies me to participate in the Facebook IPO on Friday. So it got me to thinkng - what financially savvy provider would be interested in 20 ORIGINAL FB shares in exchange for a 2 hour session ?
Now at projected opening prices, face value would be $600-$700.
Now I know what you're thinking - "I DON'T BARTER". Fine, but consider this. Bragging rights to say "I've owned it since day 1". Also consider first day Apple shares sold for $5. The stock currently trades at over $600.
So ladies - who would be willing to ride the stock market (and me as well).
If nothing else - you gotta give me style points for a unique, timely, and interesting proposition !

See there is more than one way to get screwed besides with a provider. But with the FB way of getting screwed, at least you have something you can buy and hold long term. With the other type of getting screwed it's always a short term trade, but with a better immediate reward.....that is if you do your market analysis first.
