I saw today a press release from 2005 with the following info (excerpt):

… What then is it that sets successful investors from mediocre investors? One of wall streets biggest secrets when looking to invest in stocks involves using intuition. Unlike typical analytical methodologies, intuition allows you to take decision making to the next level when looking to invest in stocks by facilitating greater clarity and insight. Rather then getting caught up in emotion, overlooking valuable information or hidden investment signals, successful investors instead use intuition when looking to invest in stocks. …

Then this press release describes a very simple procedure to enhance intuition (basically, by doing a 5 minute breath relaxation), which won’t help many.

Then it tells about the poster of the press release: “A psychic medium since birth Karyn Reece http://www.karynreece.com is a former series 7 registered representative (stockbroker), lecturer, author and media personality who provides a variety of classes and personal consultations.”

I have 2 problems with that.

  1. If it’s possible to use psychic powers for gaining on the stock market, then why don’t we hear about it more?
  2. If it’s possible to use psychic powers for gaining on the stock market, and the author himself is psychic from birth, why does he do any consulting at all? I’d just use my skills and make an easy living on the stock market by myself.
