Barbra Streisand is obsessed with trading stocks on the Internet, reports New York's Daily News. Her daily routine begins at 6:30 a.m., Pacific time, when she sits in front of her computer screen in Malibu as the stock exchanges in New York open for business. She regularly checks the latest Initial Public Offerings and then exchanges stock tips with her equally rich friends on e-mail before placing an order. Not surprisingly, she's in a bad mood when she loses and brims with excitement when she wins.
