Don's been taking a lot of needless heat on this board lately. I also believe some recent events have vindicated Don's visionary foresight. 1) The mistreatment of NASDQ traders vis a vis' the ISLD ruling. Clearly the NYSE is the only fair and transparent market place. 2) The over the top volatility of futures as evidenced by yesterday afternoons action. Why trade a leading indicator. No one makes money trading futures. 3) Even the SEC wants you to trade prop. The PDT was enacted so traders would have the benefit of being under Bright's tutelage. You have the opportunity to trade with greater leverage, albeit with higher fees than ever before. So don't fall for the snake oil that Don's detractors are spreading. 700 traders speak for themselves. Check those balance statements, watch out for sub-sub-sub hoagie LLC's, trade MOO's(read Don's Journals!!) and different business plans work for different people.
