No more trading for me...

It appears that I have won a rather large sum of money from Coca Cola. So, I am leaving the trading game and moving to a beach somewhere to live my life with unlimited women and margaritas.

So long suckers. Though I am a bit concerned that Coca Cola cannot hire someone with a better grasp on grammar and punctuation to draft my winning notice. And that I don't actually remember entering a contest. And that they notified me at my Yahoo! email address. And that the Coca Cola contact is actually using a Yahoo! email address too...

But who cares about the little things - SO LONG SUCKERS!!!

Trader-X edit - it appears now that this is some sort of ruse, and I have not won any money. I want to apologize, and say that I value all of my readers and meant no disrespect by calling you "suckers". Contrary to the title of this post, I will continue to trade. Thank you and God bless.

I donno... No mention of sending them a deposit to "hold it" for you. No mention of Nigeria anywhere or ousted political leaders, or even Canadians. I say "Let me at it!!" :-)
