Market Moods – Richard Friesen

This past May, Rich Friesen gave us a presentation on what he considers the "Golden Keys to Trading Mastery." Then in September, we examined a model for a simple trading plan. One of the first items in that trading plan model was assessing the market ... forming an opinion on what the what is doing.

At this meeting Rich will be back to guide us through a process for determining Market Moods. This will be a highly interactive meeting. Please be sure to arrive as close to on-time as you possibly can. You won’t want to miss any of what Richard has to share.

This will be our Annual Holiday Meeting -- sweet treats from the awesome Elks Wives -- certainly not to be missed
