  2. Clyde was definitely one of the very few great minds in original thinking and his ability to program algorithms was world class. The trading community will miss him and his works will be discussed forever. MB
  3. My sympathies to friends and family.

    Clyde was an impressive thinker and a gentleman.
  4. Did you work with him closely Mark ?

    looks like he lived a full life and respected by many.
  5. Clyde was a brilliant guy he helped many traders. He was a fellow Texan, Trader, Programmer, and one of but less than 10 guys I know of worldwide who had such deep thoughts about the markets mysteries and was able to express those thoughts in code for the betterment of many.

    He will be missed most largely by the Omega mailing list group and his Yahoo Swing Machine group.
