Critics are a necessary lifeblood when trying to break new thought. By their very existence they tell you that you are on the right path. My critics ultimately arrived for a very simple reason: I put decades of trend following performance data into four books. Perhaps, the story would have died there, but I then said what that performance means. And for many that forced a questioning of their adult life decision making process. Some adjusted and said thank you. Others dug in unwilling to admit the truth. This ying and yang will go on long after the extinguishing of my flame. Lesson: Keep your eyes wide open and profit will be easier.
