  1. Hi, So I want to save money on purchases of L$... so I have been buying them using the "Best Rate Buy (Limit Buy)" ... I don't mind waiting the 4 days or so, as long as I can save a few pennies. I have been successful using this method more times than not. However, sometimes, this takes a long time to fill (like 2 weeks or more), and sometimes never happens (I had an order from a year ago I finally had to cancel, as it never got filled). I called LL to get more information as to why this happens, and the guy was very helpful, but I got the impression that this is a business secret money making thing for them, and that's why they cannot divulge too much (I'd rather think that, than that they don't understand it enough to explain it to me). Basically, he explained that the system has to wait for the exchange rate to match what I ordered, in order for it to be fulfilled. I tried to see if there was a better way to keep track of this (as it does fluctuate, depending on what ppl sell L$ at), and he could not point me in any other direction than checking the Buy L$ page. Is there a "L$ stock exchange like page" other than the Buy L$ page I should be monitoring to keep track of this and better predict as to whether or not my orders will get filled within a few days or not? Do the frequent users of the Best Buy Rate (Limit Buy) purchases buy what they need at a few different Exchange Rates to ensure an order gets filled, and then maybe once it gets filled, cancel the other orders? How do you guys ensure an order gets filled in a timely manner? I noticed as soon as I purchased using this method, the Exchange Rate went down, meaning it could take even longer to get the order filled at that rate... Buying and selling probably affects the Exchange Rate... so I'm having trouble predicting whether or not an order might be filled in a timely manner. What are some tricks or tips I could pick up on from you guys? I don't want to give up and just buy L$ outright using the Instant Buy method. I suggested that there be an Exchange Rate that you could manually type in "from 'X#' to 'X#'" as that might work better for those of us who do not mind it fluctuating a bit, as long as some order gets filled... What do you guys think? Please explain to me how to achieve my goals better! Thanks!
