26. My attempt may have been somewhat half-hearted and with the...
need to shuttle kids to various locations I wound up pretty much spinning my wheels. But I learned something, picked up Edwards and Magee among other books, read a variety of trading/investing sites and learned to tinker with my Tradestation charts. Eventually decided to concentrate on the larger retirement funds instead of the smaller amount in the trading account. Not regrets whatsoever for the time spent learning something about TA.

It is not for everyone, but I agree it can be profitable for those willing to invest the time and for people who can stick to their plan. Many do not succeed, it is hard work trying to take some profits from the big boys. :)
