Nifty Marketocracy feature

Hey, I just discovered a nifty new Marketocracy feature. (As some of you may know, I work for Marketocracy.com We run a stock market simulation in which our members can create virtual mutual funds. The trades and holdings of the top 100 members on the site are mirrored by the real money mutual fund, MOFQX.)

If you create a fund on the site, you can cut and paste the graph of the fund into a message board, like so:

Note that this is a dynamic graph--as your fund ages, the chart will be automatically updated. The red line is Nasdaq, the orange line is the Dow, the green line is the S&P500, and heavy purple line is my fund, the Iron Books Value Fund. Sigh. Note to self: next time, be more careful about investing in a bankrupt company.
