Good to see you still here, Sir Butter. I thought it was only me and B left standing. With your experience, I'm sure you already know the words "long and strong" usually mean, with 99% certainty, "I'm weak and flaky." So when I say these things, it sounds like the echo chamber of the boy that cried wolf. But when I say it, it actually means something. Believe it or not! :)
It could be weeks or years. It takes patience regardless. Whatever happens, this "Chang Qi", be it a real person or a penn name, loses if we lose. So, I'm not worried. He/she can see what's going on, and we can't. That makes time fly for him/her. Even if he's on Interpol's most wanted list, hiding behind a penn name, and the SEC shuts us down, all his work and effort and investment goes up in smoke.
Therefore, I consider myself a parasite. If the host dies, I die. As it should be. :) Therefore, I do not fear death! I can buy fearlessly where I entered, sell again, rinse and repeat if necessary. When the music starts, we'll know if it's the good, the bad, or the ugly. I already have my suspicions which I'm already very confident about, but I'll keep that o myself for now. I like all cards here -- the good, the bad, and the ugly at these prices and vested interests.
