  1. Weekly letter would be appreciated. Having patience to wait for the good set ups is most difficult after having some success

  2. One of the greatest market traders of all time was Bernhard Baruch – probably THE greatest, at least of any who have shared their profile, methods, and acheivements, in the public domain acting as an individual.

    In his book ‘My Own Story’, he makes the same point as that made in the quote, I selected from your article, in my earlier post. It helped to give him a long and contented life, become a great benefactor, and when he finally died, he was still worth many millions.

    It was also mentioned as one of the secrets to thriving in the market place by Jessie Livermore. Unfortunately, Jessie never quite mastered the discipline. As you identified, as did I, it is easier said than done, like so many of these market strategies, or should I say, ‘sucess attitudes’.

    Consequently, Livermore, as he admitted quite openly, suffered as a result of his foolish lack of self discipline – making, then losing millions, on more than one occasion. The ‘game’ just took over. It became an obsession. He forgot the essence of life. Money is only a means to an end, money must never become the end game – unless you want a very sad life, as Livermore finally discovered.

    Livermore, like Baruch, knew the rules of market success, and he saw them evidenced both when he applied them, and when in success, he got over confident, and forgot, or ignored them.

    I do not think one could find a better example than in the lives of these two men and how they played out, in illustrating that it is not only in the knowing, but in their applying, and the key is – self discipline.

    It is in the lack of it where the mass, that includes the ‘could be’ greats and the downright hopeless, suffer, as Shakespeare would describe – life’s ‘slings and arrows of outrageous fortune’.

  3. In the following ‘snippet quote’ from your current commentary at Kitco, I find so embodied within, my own sentiments, ones which have taken me far too many years I wish to count, that I felt I had written them, and/or, you had plagierized them from a blog to which I contribute regularly.

    “…..I talk to subscribers often about the virtue of sitting most of the time on cash or in our high paying dividend stocks and just waiting for the really good setups. If you can literally do nothing but trade a few times a year you’ll be so amazed how much money you can make.

    While it sounds so simple, it is the hardest thing to do.

    We’re all human and want action all the time. It’s a major flaw in humanity. I’m getting better and better at sitting and I don’t take nearly as much flack as I used to for it.

    Subscribers are coming around to my way of thinking to enjoy life, study and work on yourself most of the time, always keeping an eye on the markets and stocks but doing little.

    Life really can be great if you can keep a good feel for the markets without doing anything and just enjoy life. Then when we see good setups we can pounce hard and heavy……”

    Warren, you cannot get this across enough. It still may take the reader many, many, years to assimilate, that is the nature of the beast, but hopefully – big hope, it will be in time to ‘pull out of any dive into which his financial ventures have so far got him/her succumbed.
