Hi Gail,

I just wanted to say THANK YOU.  I was really reluctant to try yet another set of trading indicators — there are so many on the market and I think I have tried them all in the last ten years.  Your indicators and training videos are the best I have come across. Your understanding of price and volume is exceptional and it’s really nice to know I send you an email or call you on a moment’s notice if I have a question.  I couldn’t believe it when you actually called me back and not some salesman.

I love the way you break it down so simplistically and your patience is a God send to traders!

Thank you! BP
