The Week That Was

Well, it's been a crazy week here at RealityMarkets.com. Some of the highlights:

1. Setting an all time order transaction record on Wednesday.
2. Setting an all time share trade record on Thursday of 120+ million shares.
3. Releasing a new version that saw order limits removed(most popular request), and numerous speed enhancements and optimizations to the site.

I'm planning on spending the next few days away from coding and beefing up the stock IPO's. There are numerous sporting stocks I want to add as well as put a dent into some of the stock suggestions and get them into the IPO stage.
