Gagher, why do you continue to do this....no one and I mean no one gives a c rap about what you do with your position. Why do you feel the need to tell everyone? So you can come back a week from now if you happen to be right in a short term context and brag about it? Holy moley woman...you need serious help.

"After spending many years in Wall Street and after making and losing millions of dollars, I want to tell you this: it never was my thinking that made the big money for me. It was always my sitting."
