long years of meditation help .. but money is deeply tied to security, at lest conceptually, as well as ego, so at best i think one can create a kind of antipathy or resignation, a fatalistic pre-acceptance of the fact that the self is already whole and complete (which is what enlightenment is) ...

but then, one would not be trading, or involved in any activity that is not win-win ...

ironic, eh?

Chart of Charts 112109 -- Slam Down Bearish
5 and 20 day moving average crossovers say bearish. The market has had it's way with the 10 day for months, so it's bullish call is questionable.

Puts are going to get incredibly expensive soon....if you want them, get them now.

Black Swans do not drift in, they are delivered by a cruise missile in the middle of the night or on the weekend.

You cannot "Conquer the Crash" in a weekend, you need to be planning and acting for months. If you haven't started it may be too late, but still--- START!
