Combine

Mike,

I have followed your trading journal and am impressed with your commitment to the process. You seemed to do very well and the few times you varied from your plan it stung.

I missed whether or not you were successful in completing your goals with the combine but did see that you are in another combine.

Congrats and will continue to follow your impressive journal.

Al
