About a month ago, I invited Slopers to help me test a new trading-oriented, web-based product I was starting to create. Dozens of non-disclosure agreements crammed my mailbox, and those testers have been quite helpful at improving the product and putting it through the paces.

I was having a discussion on the JP Morgan news and was asked 'How would you have advised them differently? After all one would assume they have at the ready the best consultants or public relations firms money can buy advising them.' Fair point, but the assumption that just because they have money to spend doesn't mean the value of the advice received will equal it. You can spend a near fortune obtaining worthless advice then spend nearly twice as much trying to repair the damage from the original investment. And the latter will always remain an open question of: 'If.'
