don't worry about it, may all your trades be winners.
Idfnl, how do you do it? are you good at finding patterns or can you just feel the direction of the stock?
As the capital markets partner of a consulting firm I was asked to run a yearly session for 20-30 new hires from top universities. I'd start off each session by reading five intraday quotes for IBM and asking each member of the group to predict if the next price movement would be up or down. Then I'd read another five and they'd make another prediction. I'd repeat 10 times and then we'd determine the top 3 stock pickers. How did the top stock pickers do it? Well, in...

We created and ran the website for www.pjwine.com for about ten years. Lotta fun but what started as an exciting venture, followed by quick growth turned into something less exciting over time. Still, we were able to attend industry tastings, private appointments and meals at wineries, purchase...
we used to buy the high end caprai when it was more reasonably priced, our experience has been not to touch it for 10 years and then see where the tannins are. We were four and had the tasting menu, everything was great but the main dish, lamb chops, was a near miss. in retrospect, they let you shape the chef's choice and a main disk with pig would have been the way to go.
>>So, I stumble upon articles from time to time on how wine tasting is "bullshit", based on scientific studies that show that 'professionals' don't really know what the fuck they're talking about. here's a good piece from freakanomics radio, apologies if it's already been posted: http://freakonomics.com/2010/12/16/freakonomics-radio-do-more-expensive-wines-taste-better/
