the return of Linden dollars

Question

Hello a few days ago I transferred 5700 Linden dollars to US dollars. I changed my mind about withdrawing funds from my account and ask to transfer my $ 20 again to Linden dollars. From now on, I promise I'll be more careful. thanks in advance!

I'm not sure that you are asking a question, but let me offer some advice. 

Any time that you buy or sell L$, you pay a fee.  When you sold L$5700, you paid 3.5% of that amount, or almost L$200 to Linden Lab as an exchange fee. So now you have the equivalent of L$5500 in USD ... $22.  Suppose you turn around now and buy L$ with that $22.  You will pay a flat fee of $1.49 to do that.  In the end, you will have about L$5128.  That's L$572 less than you started with.  You lost over $2.

So, the advice is in two parts:

1.  Don't buy or sell small amounts of L$.  If you do, you are spending a large percentage of your money in fees.In this case, by the time you are done, you will have spent 10% of your money in fees.  Trade large amounts so that the fees -- specifically the flat $1.49 purchase fee -- make up a smaller fraction of the cost.

2. Only sell L$ when you really intend to take them out of SL.  Reversing direction and buying L$ again is a losing proposition.  If you know that you are going to need your L$ in the future, keep them in world.
