  10. Gann,

    I post these thoughts because I enjoy writing about the game -- if it is putting others in a state of perpetual confusion then they need only to put me on ignore :)

    Words should never intefere with the process; for they are simply words... Words have no bearing on the trading ----> the trading creates the words...

    And Gann don't take yourself seriously enough to think that you speak for the entire comunity of Elite Trader... I really enjoyed Rogue's thoughts and I am sure someone somewhere enjoys mine...
