    Great interview, but I don't agree with adding substantially to a loosing position if it starts to recover (hunters), it works well 90% of time, but then a black swan comes and your account is already down, the big position turns into a big loss..on top of the initial loss

    Just finished reading his book - it was awesome! Really common sense stuff but I've never seen it put together so well and convincingly! Great job Lee!

    For the 'hunters' out there: "Markets can remain irrational a lot longer than you and I can remain solvent."

    When provided an understanding of the importance of having a mental roadmap, attitude adjustments and tools in the toolbox, execution is all that is left. Winning is a choice. Thank you!

    if "winners" only have 2-3 big hits with an overall batting average of 1/3, it would seem that labeling may be more subject to chance than actual skill. True alphas are extremely rare + timing is key.

    Hmmm, coincidence or not, you be the judge! Headline today on Jeff Saut's weekly commentary "Assassins, hunters, and rabbits . . . oh my". Did he get an advanced peek <smile>.

    Trader coaching is a refreshing new feed for RV as its been a long time since Market Wizards came out. AMZN is my best performing short YTD, but it wont stop me logging on to buy the book!
