A long time ago I came across a saying by a trader. I don't know his
name. I think it was from an interview in Stocks and Commodities Magazine.
"Once you know, and you know that you know, confidence replaces fear."
Below are just some of the Ferengi Rules of Acquisition:
1 Once you have their money, you never give it back.
9 Opportunity plus instinct equals profit.
13 Anything worth doing is worth doing for money.
19 Satisfaction is not guaranteed.
22 A wise man can hear profit in the wind.
23 Nothing is more important than your health ... except for your money.
41 Profit is its own reward.
44 Never confuse wisdom with luck. (my personal favorite rule , S.S.)
58 There is no substitute for success.
59 Free advice is seldom cheap.
62 The riskier the road, the greater the profit.
74 Knowledge equals profit.
97 Enough ... is never enough.
190 Hear all, trust nothing.
162 Even in the worst of times someone turns a profit.
Hi Mike ( ie. owner) I have a question or two regarding your trading of the CL
as you described in one of the VIMEO videos. I don't know
where I should post on that. It doesn't seem I should start
a new thread.
