I PMed the best trader I know, one whom (to my knowledge) has never even been mentioned here on EliteTrader. I was pretty sure he was not a poster, but wondered if he was a lurker. So I asked him what trading message boards he read. He indicated that he read none. Not only did he not read ET, he didn't read any others as well. And I guarantee you that this trader is looked up to by many here at ET, including a few who are looked up to themselves. Not that I will reveal his alias. Not even in PM. And it certainly ain't me, lest anybody try some weirdo conspiracy theory. But it is curious that he does not read the boards.
