Risk

This is a wonderful essay on risk, if you're not a trader find some time to watch it. Of course if you are a trader you have nothing but time. :)

I can't get the full program to embed so once the video starts click on watch full program.

A smart guy talking intelligently about a fascinating subject. What kind of crazy TV is that?!

Every now and again we bloggers find a home run.

I have read his book, Company, and will be reading the others I'm sure.

AN HOUR AND 12 MINUTES LONG?!?!?!

I'll watch it when I get to work later. ;-)

That may be risky.

I had a go at watching this video and after giving it an honest crack I found it to be well worth the risk of spending the time to watch it (of course being able to take a laptop into the loo didn't hurt either).

Thanks for sharing a quality piece of enlightenment.

I'm surprised more people have not commented on this video.

In fact I'm not going to post anymore until 10 more people tell me they have watched the whole thing.

:)

I may be a retired blogger now.

I think you may be experiencing the reason why more traders aren't more successful: lack of interest in the fundamental aspects of successful trading. In other words you didn't post a chart with entries and exits. ;)

I made a post yesterday regarding risk as well - must be in the air...

Two more things:

1) I just finished playing the video again in the background while I work late in my office here, and as usual I picked up things I didn't catch the first time. In the interest of keeping you from retiring from blogging, maybe you could consider counting viewings (1 for UF, 2 for me, etc.) rather than the number of people commenting about having viewed the whole thing, so that we can reduce the risk of your retirement.

2) I updated my risk post to include a link to this post, so don't delete it due to lack of popular interest. ;)

Thanks,

My girlfriend watched it over my shoulder and remarked "he's a bit tasty". Does that count as a viewing?

Solfest said...

Tasty?

LOL

Attitude Trader said...

YES! That's 4 viewings now! Don't retire yet!
