For I am most certainly correct. My life is devoted to delivering baptisms of fire to those unsuspecting trusting misguided miggilons who think that FOREX is a game.

Joe, me going out without reinforced underpants is a gamble. I could double up regular pants - that might contain the beast. But probably not. It will most likely break free.

Yes, kevlar underpants are a necessity when you're packing a schlonger like this one.

You are wrong, Bingo Cushion. I was not referring to the danger of getting bum-raided up the jack-see. The danger is that my donger might break free of it's flimsy confines and go on a rampage.

Now, with regard to the 7%. I would imagine a lot of notionally-straight fellas would fancy a ride, so you are wrong there also.

But I thank you for alerting me, I had not considered the possibility. In future I shall take care to have a reinforced back-panel as well as pouch and gusset.

Because they do not respect it, they throw it at the markets but the people taking that money do respect it. That is the difference between one side and the other.
but dont you think that you have to disconnect yourself from the intrinsic value of money to trade effectively ?

I agree you should disconnect yourself from the dollars & cents while you are in a trade or you will tend to make decisions based solely on the position's dollar value rather than sound trading techniques.

I think what Split means is more along the lines of people just throwing $20000 into an account and saying, "whoohoo, here we go", and not really having any plan or method.
