How's your buy and sell timing?

Good point.  If you hold long enough, as most of us do here with quality DGI stocks, then any sell point will look good enough a decade or three from now.  When I started this thread I was just trying to make forum conversation, and had experienced a a week where everything I touched moved a buck or so in the wrong direction every time I touched my port.  I said within 48 hrs but in a few cases it was more like 48 minutes lol.  Trading near the open is a double edged sword.  There are a lot of flash sales, but if the media piles on a few hours later sometimes the sale gets even better lol.  I shouldn't dwell on it, but I want to kick myself when I could have had a couple free shares a few days later.  Buying even smaller positions would cure that since commissions are about free.
