Episode 77 – YourDoom on The Downswing Myth

In This Week’s Episode:

Using this approach, he’s been able to maintain a high win-rate and strong profit numbers only playing 12 hours per week.

If you’re interested in learning more about his approach, he has offered a sizable discount to listeners of the show.
