entered. Verify the information. It does not matter the order of your events, as the

with which event. Double check by scrolling and reading the Blue data listed on each
event.

for the target fees, but the Borrow button can be used first, then make changes ( as
described in step 4 above ). Double the target fees and verify the options fees. This

to $64, since it is a 200 target event..
