Hi Doji, haven't read that book I'm afraid.

I get a load of quotes e-mailed to me everyday, I just pick one i like and post it

Here is the web site that sends them

You need to get a username and password, some of the site you have to subscribe for, I don't, but I get sent the e-mail

... and there I was thinking that you spent hours and hours reading all those good trading psychology books!

But I do like your thoughts for the day - in the chatroom Reggy is promising to treat us to one of his 'pearls of wisdom' each day! So between the two of you we should all be better informed. :D
