The real traders just "get on with it".
Every experienced trader knows a "Jamla".
My favourite always had the correct position in the market, whatever the news, and never took a loss. Trouble was, you never saw him take a position!
Funny......he cheated at golf and snooker as well............

LORD JAMLA started this thread Absolutely typical. I expected nothing less to be honest. Every time I have raised questions and comments that other people simply cannot answer nor understand I have been met with distain. No-one can answer my questions so they revert to insults and confrontations to get away from the real subject and avoid themselves any embarrasment. 10 replies... none about the subject. This shows it all to be honest.
Oatman, you accuse me of not being able to do it myself. Well, do you really want me to recall all my posts, compare the time and prices and see what happened??? Shall we do that?? Yes of course, because you don't understand me accuse me of cheating why don't you.
Les - I did not mis-quote you, it's on the other thread for everyone to read. I shan't reply to someone who has to resort to insults and mis-information to back up his arguments. You stick to your ways.

Yes you did. My post on the other thread refers to "if-then" and you turned it into "ifs" and "buts". Here's the quote from mine:

As you suggest, trading is an if-then business and not a guessing game.

And from yours:

There are no rooms for if's and buts when you're trading.

This may sound picky to some, but the difference in context carried an alternative meaning. It was important for me to correct this as i do not appreciate being misquoted and then the misquote being used for another purpose entirely.

And i thnk its about time for: "This correspondence is now closed" (ed)

Cos this argument is becoming a waste of my time.

Lord Jamla is the second coming of the Lord. Well at least he seems to think so.

Follow thy Shepherd disciples or rot in hell.

Lord,
please contact me, I'm having to cancel the 'TA Trading the Neil Diamond Way' seminar due to lack of take up, and will have to refund your fee.
PS -I'm sending this privately so nobody on T2W will take the p***. Nice to see you can spell 'shepherd' at last.

Can't get this Mac Davis song out of my head;

Oh Lord it's hard to be humble
When you're perfect in every way
I can't wait to look in the mirror
Cuz I get better lookin each day

To know me is to love me
I must be a hell of a man
Oh Lord it's hard to be humble
But I'm doin' the best that I can

I used to have a girlfriend
But I guess she just couldn't compete
With all these love starved women
Who keep clamoring at my feet

Well I probably could find me another
But I guess they're all in awe of me
Who cares I never get lonesome
Cuz I treasure my own company

Oh Lord it's hard to be humble
When you're perfect in every way
I can't wait to look in the mirror
Cuz I get better lookin each day

To know me is to love me
I must be a hell of a man
Oh Lord it's hard to be humble
But I'm doin the best that I can

I guess you could say I am a loner
A cowboy all locked up and proud
Well I could have lots of friends if I wanted
But then I wouldn't stand out in a crowd

Some folks say that I'm egotistical
Hell I don't even know what that means
I guess it has something to do with the way
That I fill out my skin tight blue jeans

Past your bedtime LJ ?
Sounds like someone's getting all fretful and upset.

It would be nice to hear something of worth from you.
