    Going to miss seeing your moves. If it wasn't for Rev Shark being in the G fund as much as you since last year. Your previous moves could have had the appearance of a calculated brilliant strategy to get followers winged off of your moves and get them into the paid sites with Ebb and Fred.

    Exactly
    Current signal = BUY and HOLD

    Tom, I certainly enjoy the commentary every morning and have found we think very much alike. Last year as Trader Fred remained in stocks, you and I were thinking the prices are too high and a correction is long overdue - so we remained in the marginal gains of safety. Ebb's system seems timed to emotions, whereas Fred's is tied to logic - but they are both computer based and I equally am convinced it is better not to question but simply follow directions. If you would decide on a slight variation from the others - WE ALL WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU. Thanks for all your efforts and all this site provides.

    I wish I was that smart.

    Thanks for the feedback. I will still write the commentary but I don't think my moves were helping anybody. It's not how I really wanted to, or had managed my own account in the past but I was scarred in 2004 when I bought into stocks about 6 weeks early, and even though the market did really well through the end of the year, those 6 weeks in the summer of 2004 when the market went down and I recommended staying invested, I got a wave of hate mail like you wouldn't believe. This was when I was pushing people to get out of the G fund and into stocks to take more risk. Well, I quickly realized people did not want to lose money.

    I went into hybernation mode by just doing more hit and run trades into stocks. This was not me. I went from an over 40% return in 2003, to not even beating the market for the last few years.

    I admit these systems took the heat off of me, and like V-man says RevShark has been sitting in the G-fund validating my concerns of looming pullbacks. But I want to get back to my old ways, and I don't think my old ways can come close to what Ebb or Fred can do. So, like I said in my comments today: If you can't beat them, join them.

    Thanks

    Tom,

    You were one of the great moonwalkers - now you can move forward and catch the next 3,000 point run. Catch the wave.

    Your commentary was of great value to me. Some of us are interested in returns and some interested in reading and sharing information. Having not bothered lookeing at markets for a few years, I was amazed to what extent things had changed. The internet, CNBC, aging baby-boomers, global economy and investment, and more have dramatically changed approaches`to investment through the 90's and up to present. I was reading somewhere a comparison of Rukeyser and Cramer and it struck me how it illustrates the whole difference in the state of investing from a few short years ago to today. There was a time when the terms bullish and bearish referred to states of an economy and one read Barron's and other trades for educated opinions on what the future might bring. Now they are terms slung at competing opponents with the realities ignored. There is a sense that investing is a game that is to be won or lost and not that there are real monies here that represented work.
    Your commentary usually was well supported and emphasized the seriousness of this business. This has been a long bull and there is no reason to be impatient now since after the next bear there will be another bull. I learned much about the present state of investing from reading your posts along with all of the messsage board comments and other investment commentary that fills the net. That has been valuable to me. I do hope you continue to comment but not at the expense of your own time which is needed to support the paid contributors.

    I remember them days, I was following your long time strategies for those members who only move once or twice a year like me. I am still following them to this day and have not done to bad.

    I also remember back in August of 2004 when I first joined the board and how it was a lot of fun, very entertaining, lots of financial education and all kinds of strategies from a varity of people. I also remember when it cost a lot for you to send out the email alerts about your transfers and some of the members including me stated that you did not have to send out the email alerts because we could read you Dailey Commentary instead to help you cut down on the cost. I had a lot of fun back then with lots of good memories.
    So I would like to wish you good luck and thanks alot for starting this web site.
