<B>Sure Insiders know well in advance but all these positions are irrelevant
without the volume traded and the impact on the floating stock of the respective
companies.For any hard decision to be made on insider selling the volume
would play an important part. If there are 11 seller in Microsoft each
selling 100 shares would that make a difference to floating stock&nbsp;
and what impact would that ultimately have on&nbsp; the price? None.</B><B></B>

I have appreciated your many post on this list.  Because of your obvious
sincerity and honesty, I would ask that you reflect on the above
statement:  "...Cutting your losses and moving on...but right now I
can't afford it."  If you cannot afford to cut your losses, you are
saying that you no longer are in control of the trade and you must now
depend on HOPE that the market will come to your aid and salvation. 
Hope is the one emotion that the trader surely does not want...and the
market does not even know you are a participant.   

I still use MSW ver 5.11.  I re-checked the indicator list and do not
find the indicator "HOPE", "PRAYER", "WISH".

This post is an effort to share with you because you have shared with
