Anthony was one of these people who kept poking at our programs, always looking to get the freebies. His strategy was to try to piece it together, little by little. The problem was, that strategy doesn’t really work. Having a little information is worse than having...

Jimmie

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Jimmie. You often heard him on line, boasting about his trades. Interestingly enough, he was not a boastful kind of guy, just a very proud retired U.S. Marine who found something that works incredibly well. Jimmie’s been to all...

Doctor Peter

Peter was, what I would call a good acquaintance. We met in this business and I even met him once at a conference in Florida. A great guy, personable, intelligent, fun to hang out with… just one problem: he could not control his emotions in a trade to save his life....
