After some introspection, I have concluded that it would be in my best interest to take a sabbatical from ET for a while. I do not have an addictive personality in the normal course, however, I find myself frequenting ET somewhat more than I would care to. After exceeding 3,000 posts it has occurred to me that perhaps I should spend more time elsewhere, both during and after market hours. There is no question that ET has some value (although you do have to look for it), and I have benefited from it to some extent. However, when I see the rather high proportion of my posts that have nothing to do with trading, it has dawned on me that perhaps I should spend at least that time away from my computer and out in the real world. Further, I wonât deny that I have missed more trading opportunities than I would care to admit while engaging in my diatribes in response to other peopleâs diatribes in these forums. And so, I am hoping that cooler heads will prevail in 2007. With this in mind, I am going to endeavor to abstain from ET for a period of no less than 6 months and hopefully a full year. I may occasionally drop in on the software, hardware or broker forums since many of you folks are far more knowledgeable in these areas than I am. However, I will only do so if a specific technical need arises, and I am hoping that such need will not arise. I will be here until the end of the year and will then sign off. Not that I expect any PMs, but I will be disabling this feature during my absence. I do hope to see most of you when I return. Please feel free to use this thread to record your own New Yearâs Resolutions for posterity.
