Wish i never wrote the "Grandfather" thing now, makes me sound like i'm 103 , still in my 50's guys, but must admit do feel over 100 some days lol ! ............... Shoki , I don't think you would ever offend me , you sound a decent guy, just me being forgetful, age again possibly, also interesting pieces in your post this afternoon, i hadn't seen them before .....................Randfontein, glad you are still around mate, agree i have a lot of respect for our "girls" too, sharp cookies, in particular Miss G, not really so much on this board, but mainly on others , where she uses her charm" to max effect and asks questions and gets answers, without being shot down in flames, even her cat is a legend in its own lifetime ! ............... Yea, the re-tracement was expected and even predicted by the "chart guys" and came as no surprise, but i am confident we will now go on to bigger and better things and i expect holiday bookings, especially from the UK, where we are in danger of changing from an island to a submarine, will be especially good , still a lot more life in this baby yet ........................ like the idea of the NYM, countryside and people up there are amazing, are you on skype mate ? be nice to catch up on something far more interesting than shares lol ! :-)
Not having been around for a while doesn't mean I'm out of steam - nor out of TCG for that matter.... I keep learning from the enlightning posts of the regulars here, with the observation of lovely Ladies getting in power more and more. Keep it up, Miss golightly & Miss BMW... And, after all, where would we be without Harriet Green? :-) "Grandfather" Mr Bobs is keeping up the male flag, though, along with Riz, mkwarriors etc.. Looks like a good balance. The recent turbulences at TCG had left me cold. Overheated indicators cried for retracement and that's what they got. Seems like we are sneaking upwards again below the radar. Best thing to happen. With markets pretty volatile TCG almost looks like a save haven until figures come out. Let them be good and - no, not Wales necessarily, MrBobs, could be North Yorkshire Moors Ry instead! :-)
What a good piece. Most inciteful. I have to say I've only really been reading posts on here for a year or so but I can really see what he means about people spouting crap. The people with useful things to say generally say just that useful thing and leave the name calling and bickering to those people that post every 2 minutes with actually nothing useful to say! Im sure a lot of people can relate to what he says about day trading looking at the grass being greener on the other side, I know I can. Its certainly made me think.
hello ... And what an interesting name you have! :-))
Glad you found the article helpful and that you have started to post. Its a bit daunting at first but good when you get to "know" peeps. And there are a lot of very nice and genuine people on the TCG board and only a couple to watch out for! IMHO of course.
I wish I was as disciplined as the article refers. It really is good advice. I could have been a lot more successful even in the past couple of months had I heeded some of the advice. I would proffer up one other little word of minor wisdom that I have learned.... Buying shares is like eating chocolate ... Best consumed in small amounts until you know the impact it has had . My best stock purchases have worked out best when I have put only a small amount in at a time to any one particular stock and if need be topped up if it has gone Pete Tong. Similarly with selling. Unless something obvious, tranches is the way to go .... True,you might not "max out" on the gain if it goes up, but it's a choice you can take and perhaps be happier with. Always leave yourself with some cash to "fix" things or to "take advantage" and IMHO, even the worst decisions can come good.
I hope you have lots of fun investing and in posting ... And make enough profit to make you happy. I'm sure you will with TCG!!! And I'm sure there are lots of others on here that would be happy to share their experience and tips too.
Would just like to say I found the article you posted earlier very interesting and as being relatively new to shares myself will certainly be reading it again on a regular basis to remind myself not to pick up any more bad habits ! Thanks for posting an excellent read as you can see I am new to posting but have for the last 2 yrs followed with much interest the views on this board having held this share myself for a few years through the ups & downs but always a believer it would shine once more.
