  • Stock-Market "Antifreeze" Can Boost Your Return, Too If there's one thing a trader fears most, it's a lack of information... especially when it comes to the most basic of all: price.

    So I wasn't surprised when all hell broke loose last week when the entire Nasdaq exchange shut down for three hours. "Technical issues" related to price quote dissemination.

    What is worrisome are the "black holes," and if and when we'll step into one.
