      James- It is the first of about a half-dozen clips from a full one hour-interview we did. More coming in the weeks ahead! - Rick

      Rick (and RV), would love to hear the one hour piece altogether instead of just dribbling these gems out piecemeal (they finally released the long versions of Peter Brandt and Denise Shull's sessions and they were just outstanding - I obviously bookmarked them to review over and over!). Many thanks for your generosity in sharing your experiences!

      I agree Richard, especially if you listen at the train or so longer is better

    A wonderful--albeit short--piece. Humility is a rare but valuable commodity on Wall Street, and it was splendid to hear his very human and impactful story, which hopefully will be imparting some wisdom on old and young alike. More from this gent pls.

    I miss the floor. Broker could have bought those 15 from anyone. He bought form you because you were a stand up guy with a reputation for making good mkts and standing by them.

    Great intro to Mr. Bensignor! It would be nice to have a full hour of him dispensing market wisdom and trading psychology. Also please get a copy of his newsletter up on RV Publications for us to examine! Thanks.
