Our pioneering ponies are finding the financial frontier fickle. Some are discovering profit, while others are getting scalped. Silver and 30-year T-bond, like Lewis and Clark, are both in uncharted territory. With respective gains of $1,175 and $15, they've both crossed the $11,000 mark and are in first and second. Bold Blue Chip in third, posted a $25 gain, leaving him with enough cash for the Louisiana Purchase. In fourth, OTC suffered the same fate as the Donner Party after getting stuck in the mountains all winter. He lost $155 and dropped from second to fourth. The saver steeds formed a wagon train and are slowly crossing the profit prairie. Respective gains of $11, $10 and $8 have EE Bonds, Money Market and 90-day CD in fifth, sixth and seventh. Prospector Gold struck gold while wandering in the wilds, gaining $139 and one place to move up to eighth. Lipper Mutual's pioneers were attacked by a raiding party that lopped off $102 to drop him one place to ninth. Lipper International's expedition got off to a slow start and remains in 10th, but this week's discovery of $106 was his fourth straight fiscal find.
