    Hi Colin,

    I read in the FAQs that Incredible Charts won’t work on the iPad. I just wanted to put in a vote for an iPad version, I’d happily subscribe to that!

    Great newsletter, one of the best I read on the street. My team are all on it now.

    Hey Colin,

    I have been a subscriber to your newsletter for a good few years and I love it.

    Was suprised to see that you’re living in Australia. I live in Sydney.

    Your newsletter is the best free trading advice I’ve found on the net. I truly appreciate how you spend your time and effort helping people like me out.

    Thanks heaps.
