Re: An eye-opening recommendation regarding Midd

Excellent points, Denny. As I said, I'm learning. My tactic now is to be very conservative with my own trades, and to bet bigger when it's something the Pro/Option pro's recommend. After all, they have a 90+% win rate, which is more than I can claim. [more]
