Sorry!! The article you are trying to read is not available now.
Thank you very much;

downloading your reports.



I wanted to post an article that refers back to Todd's first journal log of the day. I wanted to reinforce that Todd does speak to himself; he is unconventional (read: weird); and he would also have pressed the magic button if there were one. There is also no one I would rather hang with! We both have issues - "we are here because we ain't all there."

On a serious note, Toddo brings up some excellent points that I too would like to touch on. This is an impossible game to win all the time or even the majority of the time. We don't attempt to try to tell you what to do, only you can answer that question. Instead, Minyanville attempts to offer education with an entertaining twist. That is where we get the mojo baby.

Anyone can go to a market reference guide and define a market term and show how it is used. There is nothing unique in that and there are many websites that offer it. What we try to do is let you see how we use various tools and what the trading and investment landscape looks like in our everyday life - even outside of the office. That is the beauty of it. Dealing with the market is very similar to dealing with the rest of life - it is driven by emotion, constantly changing and usually unpredictable (and I swear I am not talking about my wife).

Early in my career, I was trained to never totally rely on someone else for an opinion because then you will have someone to blame. That is scary because I usually know when I am wrong because I become convinced that I am right. When I am totally using someone else, I can make that type judgment call.

I was also trained to look directly into the camera when being interviewed or be beaten by my superiors (thanks Larry and Ralph). I am reminded that my first TV interview ever was on FNN (before CNBC) with Neil Cavuto. The guy creamed me, but at the end I came back fighting and we have been friends ever since. He is as good a guy as Rhonda is minxy and I will be a guest on his FOX show today at 4:20pm. Wait 'till you see the cast of characters on the segment with me. Just remember if you watch, I believe that the louder someone yells to get their point across, they are only trying to convince themselves ;-)

Toddo - watch it with my Casey. I may be folically impaired, but I am scrappy!
