After reading many of marketsurfer's posts, notably in the various trend trading, Victor Neiderhoffer and Larry Williams threads, I just had to ask what other people think. Of course, everyone is entitled to his opinion. Here, I am more concerned with the relentlessly vacuous manner in which some people defend those opinions, notably marketsurfer. I am not concerned with his motivation. I don't care whether he actually believes everything he writes or if his is a misguided attempt to draw attention to himself at any cost. (Similarly, I am not concerned with Ann Coulter's motivation.) I initiated this thread in the Resources section because some people seem to hold marketsurfer and his teachings in high regard. So, there you have it. The question is straightforward. Despite my strong opinion, I will refrain from voting in my own poll. No doubt, however, marketsurfer's numerous and varied aliases will come to his aid, so I would be inclined to discount the first 10 or so votes in his support. The matter is now in your hands.
