Explain what seems odd? You bought one share of WarmSU at 43, and your
cash on hand was charged .43 credibills. Change and balance are both
completely clear, though <cash> is denominated in credibills (FX$)
instead of coupons...
After you use everything you know and can find out to make what you're
certain is the right decision, and it's too late to change things or
back out -- you'll find out something that would have reversed the whole
thing for you, if you'd only known in time.
