  1. Well, I made money on the auto-trader, but I suspect that was a result of the volatility of the market during the year or so that it was running. In lower volatility markets, it didn’t perform as well. In the end, the amount of money I was making didn’t justify the effort required to keep it going. (e.g. doing taxes was a huge pain!)
