Price is thus expected to oscillate between the resistance level at 0.9950 and support level at 0.9800 within the next several trading days. However, a breakout will occur early […]

RANDOM THOUGHTS FROM LIFE ON THE ROAD Louise Bedford and I have just wrapped up about a month of travelling to different states and presenting, which is something we haven’t done for probably 15 years.

THE WAYS WE CON OURSELVES I support a particular hospital charity that each year or so runs a home lottery and every year I enter. To date I have won a digital camera, an iPod, an Apple TV, a tonne of chocolate, wine (brilliant for a non-drinker but good for presents) and a host of […]
