    Hello

    I quote this as I have seen a coment about the role of intellegence in one of early posts in this thread.

    Persistence. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
    Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with
    talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
    Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence
    and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan, 'Press on,' has
    solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."

    Calvin Coolidge (President USA)

    change your thinking."

    Today's quote is from Mark Weinstein, actually I'm looking for more info about him for quite some time specifically whether he has written any articles, research papers or books.

    Anyway I read in some forum someone saying he went a record 300 trades without a loss at some point, can't really verify the info though.

    Wonder if its an alternate name for the great Stan Weinstein? Does Anyone know? CV perhaps?

    I dont thinks its the same guy.The 300 trade streak is verified and is genuine I believe. Also marcus, it gives more credibility that Mark Weinstein has remained anonymous instead of going into publishing and vending.

    Winning traders do not believe in truisms offered by other authors. they rely on expertise and experience and find their own edge.

    Today's quote is from Marty Schwartz, a legendary trader an author of the best selling book "Pit Bull". Has scored enormous percentage gains in every year since he turned full time trader in 1979, but he has done so without ever losing more than 3 percent of his equity on a month-end to month-end basis. In the US Investing Championships held by Stanford University Professor Norm Zadeh his performance was nothing short of astounding. In nine of the ten four-month trading championships he entered, he made more money than all the other traders combined. His average return in these nine contests was 210 percent - non annualized! In his single entry in a one-year contest, he scored a 781 percent return.

    He has been an inspiration to many of today's most successful traders
