Mel Gibson teaches trading

I’m off to the Far East (HK, Vietnam, Cambodia) for few weeks, so no more blogging until early April. It is sad, I know. For my final post, I will share a teaching from ‘We Were Soldiers’, a Mel Gibson Vietnam war movie.

Before Lt.Colonel Hal Moore (Gibson) leads his troops off to war, he is shown  making notes on the earlier mistakes of the French. I paused the DVD at this point and scribbled them down.
