The Hedgehog Weekly Market  Overview  is  building  a  market  support 
group.  The  group  would share its market knowledge and ideas via the 
Weekly Market Overview MSN Group.  Working the markets takes a lot  of 
time  and  energy  that  many  of  us  may not be able to bring to the 
battle.  It makes sense to network our resources.  There is no cost to 
join but members must be serious about participating  with the group.
