Hi all. I'm sure you all recognise my username of martymcc and have probably noticed my lack of posts and participation in discussions. Indeed those of you who use the chat room will have seen me there but taking no part. This is because I am a relative novice to share dealing and an even bigger novice to TA. I am a final year Information Management student at Queen's University in Belfast and had planned to teach myself TA in my spare time. But I hadn't reckoned on the amount of work I would have and so my spare time has been very limited. I am therefore trying to keep myself in regular touch with what is happening in the markets so that when the time comes I will have a feel for the markets and hopefully this will make my learning of TA a little bit easier. I felt I had to make this clear as everyone else is doing a lot of hard work in making such excellent posts and I didn't want to be seen as not pulling my weight and contributing. Everyone here works together and I look forward to being able to make contributions of my own whenever that may be! Thanks to everyone for their time and excellent analysis. I hope this makes it clear why I have not been participating. Keep up the good work!
