Abstract

In the story below, David describes the personal challenges he has faced in controlling his on-line stock market investing.

The viewpoints in David and Nigel's sections reflect the ideas and opinions of their respective author-although this account is collaborative, both authors worked independently and take credit only for their contribution1.
