    Trading Biography
    Been in the markets since '77, been daytrading since '98.

    The business about the book and about being a vendor comes up regularly, like last night's chili. Why the book? A participant in one of my forums put it succinctly:

    "Eventually, everything that has to be said is said. The same questions are asked again and again, the same theories are explained again and again, the same or similar examples are provided again and again. Hundreds of threads with repeating subjects, the old threads having hundreds of pages with repeating questions, the result of which is that newcomers become easily confused and what is important becomes more difficult to find, even with Search. At some point, rather than add value, further postings just add mess."

    And, so, the book. Topics addressed, questions answered, examples given. But only enough. Not endlessly. I hope that those who understand the need for assuming the responsibility for one's successes and failures will find it useful, will catch the ball and run with it. The spirits of those who came before will be there to cheer.
