You need to learn to set your goals a little higher. In the new economy, 100% a year is nothing.
I remember a few years ago there was this moron named Wade Cook who was appearing on television in Los Angeles and giving "seminars" where he charged $thousands for book and tapes. He promised people that they could make 30% a month. Now there is a real goal for you to aim at.
You have to forget ITIC and use options and futures and leverage to the hilt.
Report back in six months and tell me how well you are doing.
Yeah, I'm behind the times. I need to learn to put my 100% of my equity to work for me. (That's different from being insolvent, but I lost the course materials, so I can't remember how it's different.)
I nominate the bear for the highest award that humanity can bestow on anybody for his brave act of devouring Wade Cook. I only hope that the bear didn't get poisoned or suffer a bout of indigestion. I would think that any animal would run from the proposition of consuming Mr. Cook and wretch its innards out. Three cheers for the bear!
