Has anyone else asked why the "Download Search Results" option is now missing? This was pretty important to me and now I don't see it. Any insights would be greatly appreciated. I can still modify my spreadsheet to work with copying and pasting from the results, but seriously, why are we non-API people getting shafted all the time?
Investors - LC / Folio selling temporarily down?

The problem currently surrounds using their formerly convenient +/-    markup/markdown buttons. Provided you don't use those, you can list groups of notes with manual pricing.

I am finding you can squeeze about 0.25% out of those buttons before they break, too. So you can reprice a group of notes about 0.25% at a time.
Investors - LC / Folio and IRAs

Well that's a shame. Here I was thinking I would sell notes from my IRA to my regular account for absurd markups and fund my tax-free IRA that way. Not to mention the tax write off on the losing side making such bad investment decisions. Shucks!  ;D
Foliofn - LC / Posting few hundred notes for sale!

I've always thought $50 notes were the best. The LC fee is rounded down (IE: $1.38 payment = 1c in fee, vs $0.68 = 1c in fee). Also, I figure if youhavhve 12.5K or more, then $50 are the way to go because I'd rather have my money more narrowly in better notes than spread over a slightly less desirable average. 12.5K / $50 = 250 notes, a reasonable diversity if your filters are good.
This is why you need friends like those in the capital building. Do this between 3 people and what do you have now? no self-dealing, no double-dealing but just a friendly rotation of "poor" investment decisions. You can do this with real estate, too, selling it at inflated prices with your Self-Directed Roth/IRA funds between 3 or 4 parties. Using cash under the table to level out differences, so everyone loses a little to the middle man, but makes a ton on the end with tax free gains down the road. Need money to make money here (lots of it).

I also like the couple who divorced at the end of December, remarried beginning of January to take the tax breaks for filing separately. Apparently the IRS didn't like them either. I mean since when is obeying the law breaking the law? (Oh yeah, getting pulled over for going the speed limit in the left lane for "obstructing traffic", another great story :-)
