Lots of good nuggs of wisdom here. I'm almost 2 months into the challenge now and glad to come across a post like this. It's refreshing to see some long bias, everywhere I turn it seems that people want to drop the hammer on stocks-ha!

Jackaroo I took a major lesson from this video. Thank you for sharing, this probably made you a 10x better trader then you were before, and to man up and recap it and make a video of it for others to learn from is class act!!!!! You already knew what to do and now I bet you will never forget it. Probably one of your greatest learning lessons that sharpened your skills even better for the future. Thanks again man!!!!
