For the traders here: Ed Seykota's 'The Whipsaw Song'

Like most people, I first learned of Ed Seykota from his epic interview in Market Wizards, back when I was a 20-something stockbroker in Seattle. While there are a lot of great interviews in that book, Seykota's is far and away the best.


You get a whip and I get a saw, honey
You get a whip and I get a saw, babe
You get a whip and I get a saw -- One good trend, pay's for 'em all!

Ok, self bump

Is there anyone here who gets this song? It is brilliant. I was singing it all day today.
