The Right Edge

The Entry

The Result

Ya that edge, the right edge of the chart, the one that's blank if you scroll over a few clicks. That's real trading.

We have the historical data and our indicators indicate based on that data, but the future is always blank.

Then it fills and we live with our probabilities.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream--and not make dreams your master,
If you can think--and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings--nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

By Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936).

Stupid Apple

Effing Apple......but wait, big bad MS did that too...take a near perfect OS like Windows XP, make it bigger, stupider, clumsier, more useless and aggravating. Then wrap it in glossy clothes and sell it us for 50% more money. All in the name of progress.

I hate MS, I hate Apple...I hate technology for the sake of technology...and all the idiots who think this is progress...

Am I ranting again?

That would be affirmative.
