(NOTE: For those who have been in the business since dinosaurs roamed the Earth, like me, you may want to utilize the old skills of A time, B time and C time to convert these basics to a rational framework.

Spend just FIVE MINUTES every day doing something that will help the market. A small thing.   You are in ...
