Belated congratulations for this new weblog that I just discovered.

Becoming a trader for me means expanding my horizon to read write and learn .

In this way, when you write and share you also find an edge over those who don't.

Look forward to your new book and to seeing you in Singapore soon?

Blimey, what a list! I wish somebody had given me these names when I first started trading. It would have prevented a lot of heartache and soul searching.

Well, I hope to make things just a bit easier for new traders, but the hard work is in the implementation. Thanks for the comments!
