Chartered just spiked up to $1.50. I noticed that it was holding on quite well this morning but I was trying to clear off some other orders.
When the price started rising, I tried calling my broker when the price went pass $1.46 but she didn't pick the phone up for... what seemed like an eternity. By the time she picked up the phone the price was shooting at $1.50.
There's something to be said for internet straight through orders.
In Australia their internet systems work very well. Even if I fail to place the order, I can still ring up the office and get a dealer within 10 seconds. Check out the site:
