After reading this article, I am even more hesitant to try something like E-Trade … unless my flock is willing to back me up. Apparently, parrots make better investors than investors.
The stock market page in the newspaper, with its endless list of numbers in that tiny font, practically gives me an anxiety attack. Cute little ping pong balls with the names of company stock to trade, on the other hand, would be much less intimidating and you could even make a game of it. I imagine that parrot grabbing a ball with its foot, doing an air pump fake, and then chucking its investment across the room.
