    Well that might be true since you are more in the territory of negative money making

    You keep claiming investing is your job. You gave up contracting, and have mocked people on here for having to work. Seems you're not very good at your new job.

    I can certainly believe you had/have no idea, but not just about investing

    Two posts ago you say you have more to do than just making money. Now you say you're working your ass off - but clearly not working that well as you missed that obvious big deal. So, what is it ... working your ass off or not working so hard?

    As for your mocking, I can't be bothered to search for the post but it was about a month or so ago. Something like we have to work 8+ hours a day and you only need to work a few as you're so much more special than we are or some such rubbish.

    Well I sincerely apologise - that is not something I'd ever believe. Work is work and should rewarded as appropriate. Workers exploited not properly compensated is an entirely different matter.

    I remember this lecture on the whole psychology of greed and my reaction was, no way, people can't be that stupid. Then I realised I did it myself. Credit to ATW, he's an intelligent guy - everyone in the contractor world is, and he bought into an oversold market but does not realise the top. Now he's thinking I better sell before it goes lower. This is trading with emotion 101.

    Posted by Scooty the expert back in late June when AMD was $48. From that point AMD shot to 92 in Sept before falling back to 78 yesterday. Had ATW listened to Scooty's 'excellent' 'expert' non-advice he would have missed out on a near 100% extra growth.

    The TA has been so far off it's a joke. I'm sure Scooty will come back and make up some bulltulip on why his TA is so wrong (probably blame those pesky investors buying AMD shares).

    Looking forward to Scooty's reponse
