Hey folks, i`ve seen some posts lately from guys concerning pos margins. I just had my 15 month psa drawn and it came back at 0.00! Thats three of those in a row. My margin was small but there and wanted to let guys know that it doesnt always mean that something bad is gonna happen. Keep the faith, Tim
