  9. I just wanted to thankyou for a very rewarding weekend at your seminar. I started off wondering if I would understand any of it but ended up coming with a head and notebook full of useful information. I can already see my first problem - having only $15,000 in equity if I apply your 6% equity rule and 1% stop loss rule I am going to have to buy small parcels and sell them at almost the smallest fall. Do you have any ideas in this regard?
  10. Concerning your Research Report No 1 Combining Fundamental and Technical Analysis (No longer published, but now incorporated in my Seminar Notes under Stock Selection - Colin): Considerable doubt must be cast on any single snapshot. To have any confidence in the use of selection techniques based on fundamentals (and technicals also for that matter) then wide ranging data over many years is a prerequisite to enable valid statistics to be generated.
  11. Of course the overall market was rising at the time you wrote your Research Report No 1 Combining Fundamental and Technical Analysis (No longer published, but now incorporated in my Seminar Notes under Stock Selection - Colin) and you may have had no trouble "proving" something.
