Black and White

One of the cruel realities of the market is that when it comes to measuring success, it is objective..you either make money or lose money. You may feel as though you were right about your market opinion but your timing also has to be right to win. I love the fairness of the market because it is one of the few places where there is no referee to decide, no instant replay or “mulligan”. No one is there to say “nice effort” and if they do it is only masking the truth. Price is truth, not your opinion and not mine.

So that is why I am taking a hard line and not giving a copy of the book to the person who sent me this email.

Hi Brian,
I don’t use gmail so I couldn’t answer on your blog.
My answer is ****.
By the way, thanks for all the GREAT information you share. I am unlearning all the bad habits I taught myself about trading thanks to your teachings and book suggestions. THANK YOU GREATLY!

This person correctly guessed the stock as did another person who sent me an email entry. The rules I posted

POST YOUR GUESSES IN THE COMMENTS UNDER THIS POST ONLY. CONTEST ENDS WHEN I RECEIVE 3 CORRECT GUESSES. IF YOU EMAIL ME FOR HINTS YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.

were clear. So I have one book left for the next person who guesses the stock correctly and posts their response in the comments section of the post below.

BTW, I have not received any incorrect guesses so it isn’t that difficult or more likely, there are just a lot of smart readers.
