Seems pretty clear that you still are. Very cocky, I mean.

No? Good to you.

You are right Jarod. I haven't completely learned my lesson. [Big Grin]

Wow glad to see Nec Spec is back.


When you make money, you got lucky. When you lose it, it's your own fault.

That was a bad combination [Wink] But not at all uncommon. Just as well you weren't fearful too!

Trading is fun if you know what you are doing. It is even more fun if you dream of 10% weekly gain contra 75%. Someone said you had to trade like you were Alibaba and the 40 thieves. Cheers
