Meme meme, meme meme

From Running 2K's...I thought it was a cool one just to see what books were lying next to everyone's computers!

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that cool or intellectual book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

"Make note of each new low and find where prices rise (still moving backwards in time!) by 20% or more from the lowest low to the close. When this occurs, the lowest low marks the trend start, For example, imagine that you have a toboggan about to slide down a large hill."
- From Trading Classic Chart Patterns.

The big question that remains (besides what the heck is this guy talking about), is why is M's book on "my desk" (aka the top of the TV stand)? Also found near by: The ABC's of Art (only 26 pages long though), the latest Real Simple magazine, and Prep (which is not nearly as good as Garlic and Sapphires, except from the "can I identify anyone in here" perspective).
