Great webinar as always. Thanks.

It's interesting how many questions there were on HFT's. As TST discussed, HFT's are playing a different game to the rest of us. Ignore them. Trade longer timeframes. That doesn't mean you have to become a multi day swing trader. Even if your trades only typically last 30 minutes. You're still WAY outside of what the HTF's are concerned with.

If you're not making money, it's not because of HFT's. That is a cop out and is just looking for excuses.

Again, great webinar. Thanks.

I found this to be one of the most helpful webinars I've been to too date. The discussion was real, with real experiences and practices. It allowed me to see where I am currently positioned in the "scheme of things". The sports analogies were right on target and made things very real. The best part though was what I learned about making progress thru "process". This webinar tied a lot of things together for me personally!

Thank you all for an extremely enlightening presentation, time well spent.
