Whoever it was on here that recommended the website Traders Superstore I want to say thanks. You are right they have been very helpful to me in learning to trade. I now have hope that I can quit my job and trade full-time. Trading is not as hard as I thought it was but it helps to learn from the right place.

@dinneratjoes still getting used to my fabulous 'fablet'. And you can't make a sarcastic comment on a sarcastic comment. Don't be redundant.
