One Day While Changing a Diaper...

Do you spend too much time worrying about money? Are you anxious about investing for your retirement, your kids' education or just a rainy day?

As a self-employed writer - married to another self-employed writer - I got to thinking about how to invest our savings a few years ago. It was the middle of the dot-com bust-up, and our mutual funds had lost much of their value. Yes, our advisor never called us either. I learned about technical analysis - the study of market charts - and started writing about investing for the Montreal Gazette, the largest English-language newspaper in the province of Quebec.

One day, I heard about something called the Commitments of Traders Reports. Some analysts swore by these little-known reports, saying they could help determine future market direction.
