Have it your way then, I'll take my calculator off somewhere else.
Bring your calculator to the next seminar when Dentist arranges it :-)

come around on Friday! Can you make North Greenwich tube for 6:20am?

(p.s. It's not a 'Carry On Film' collection. It's hardcore pornography. Sorry for any misunderstanding)

If you gamble ie. all in, over the long term, you will not survive; if you use your skill, you will last longer because you will know when to fold and when to attack. it is a probability game.

In trading, it is the same!

Dante, do you have any open trades? For all we know you could have some open with Spanish stops that have gone thousands of points offside.... ;-) Just kidding. 89%...... Good work. Even if it is only 45 trades that's still good!!!

Sam.

Well Muel, he said it's 0.5R, so you could be right, he's just getting 50% movement in his instruments...long term options could still fit the bill I guess.
