Hi Ed,

I am thinking about you and Tribe as I am observing a recurring feeling. It has been a while.

I have attached the Toronto TTID with an updated email address.

Enjoy Christmas and all the best in 2012!
Thank you.

Second Chance

Hi Ed How are you doing?

I really enjoy reading what you have to say and thought your insight that everyone gets what they want in the bookmarket wizards was hilarious only so because it is so right.

I have got what I wanted recently and that is to be right on my back side and in need of some help, I have developed a very clever trading system which really works well but I have gone broke not because of the system but because of my inability to control my emotions whilst under pressure, My system is not conventional and It is something that I have developed and is original and I feel I only have a short period of time to make the most of it until it stops working or market conditions change to render is less useful.

My feeling are now that I am far smarter because of what has happened to me but I need a second chance in order to put into practise what I have learned about myself from my experiences.

I was hoping that you might know how this feels and be interested in helping me put into practise what I have learned and help me make the best of my information.

Kind regard,

Thank you for sharing your process.
