I am not disputing you, but your statements are not very specific. What can you attest to having worked for you or someone you can personally verify?
My great uncle used to say that if go out behind the barn and throw enough stuff at the back wall something is bound to stick. I am sure that even some of Don Dupree’s ideas have some foundation in fact. I even thouht his course was worth the price for its entertainment value alone. I have looked at my CS video many times, and I have watched his infomercial even after buying the course. I think his attitude is terriffic.
I have listened to a couple of Wade Cook’s free tapes. I checked his book out of the library, but it did not get me interested. Maybe I will try again later. I have listened to some of the tapes in his older course, but I am not excited about his ideas yet. I will give him some credit for the theory of following a stock that has a small range it moves in almost constantly. I have lucked up on one stock that was bouncing about a buck and a half, until I accumulated some money. Then it went up about two and a half bucks and has been stable with about a twentyfive cent bounce. I forgot what WC calls that. He may have some very good ideas, but which ones are good? I have a co-worker that gets very upset when WC is mentioned, but I doubt that he has gotten a penny from him.
Please do not think that I mean to offend you or demean your position. I would like to get to the bottom line. What do you think works? My experience must have been a fluke. I do not find anything so easily. WC may be alright, but I would not trust him if I went to a seminar and experienced a hard close. I have had just enough bad experiences in my half-century to be leary of people who do that. A hard close means that I better hold my nickel till the buffalo fertilizes the prarie.
I think you and I could analyze this stuff and find we want the same thing. We want to find as Zig Ziggler says a way to help a lot of people get what they want so we can get what we want, or as CS puts it help people solve their re problms.
May you profit from all of your ventures, and may anyone else reading our posts be as successful as we hope to be.
