Is 2011 the Year? As honey is sweet from any part of the honeycomb, so is he. A Scottsdale guy who's honest! and you can trust, he's compassionate, has a sense of humor, he doesn't have a wife he's cheating on, a secret baby momma, a girlfriend, a alcohol or drug problem, he's not a trust fund baby recklessly living off daddy's money, he's smart, ambitious, successful because he's driven and passionate about what he does... that kind of Man!

He's also a triple board certified Harvard and Stanford Anesthesiologist and a ex-model!! ~ written in late 2010 or early 2011 by Bridget M Green (DOB Feb 1979-DOD June 2013).
The amazing lovely and beautiful Bridget Mary Green (Bridget M Grassi) very incredibly and sadly wrote the above future husbands' wish-list (if you will) before being introduced to heroin in 2011 (Bridget smoked heroin and got addicted to it almosty immediately, when given heroine during a visit by two well-known Phoenix/Scottsdale area businessmen in early Sept 2011, which heroin became highly addictive causing her death (by complications of a drug overdose) and cardiac arrest in June 2013 (after less than 2-years of drug and heroin addiction, both smoking and injection). Little did anyone realize when Bridget wrote that husband "WishList" only 1-1/2 yrs earlier that she was absolutely right-on accurate by incredibally and ironically predicting the year 2011 would in-fact be 'The Year' for Bridget (after several failed relationships and many domestic violance incidents by her husband) but instead of Bridget's year of her great desire for a noraml family life (with a kind and loving husband and her own children) and her long hoped for personal success, the year 2011 would mark the year which led to her tragic passing-away at a far too young age of just 34. A real tragedy. ~ David Green

Buying Higher Swing Lows and Selling Lower Swing Highs is the best way to identify commodity futures trading market direction and define a bullishly or bearishly structured market. It's based on the observation by looking at a bar-chart of any market (stocks, futures or forex) you will see a bear market consists of mostly a series of lower highs and a bull market consists of mostly a series of higher lows. A swing-low is defined as a low day (or bar) with higher prices both in front and behind the low day (or bar), thus forming a swing-low. This swing-low must also be above the previous swing-low, thus forming a higher swing-low. A swing-high is defined as a high day (or bar) with lower prices both in front and behind the high day (or bar) forming a swing-high. This swing-high must also be under the prior swing-high thus forming a lower swing-high. ~ David Green

Time is the most important factor in determining market movements and by studying past price records you will be able to prove to yourself history does repeat and by knowing the past you can tell the future. There is a definite relation between price and time. By studying time cycles and time periods you will learn why market tops and bottoms are found at certain times, and why resistance levels are so strong at certain times, and prices hold around them. The most money is made when fast moves and extreme fluctuations occur at the end of major cycles. ~ W.D. Gann
I thought u would enjoy this famous quote by St. Paul as the words are so beautiful as written by Paul about year 30-AD and still said in wedding ceremonies 2000 years later.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. ~ St Paul

I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner does not always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn't always win the battle.

The Cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be.

From this distant vantage point, the Earth might not seem of particular interest. But for us, it's different. Look again at that pale-blue-dot. Earth appears as a real tiny small dot, smaller than a pixel (the blueish-white speck a bit over halfway down the brown band on the right) within the darkness of deep space ... That's here, that's home, that's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there. ~ Carl Sagan

Every movement in the market is the result of a natural law and from a Cause which existed long before the Effect takes place, which can be determined years in advance.

Gann
