  1. MrTopSep has an will continue to honor CharlieD. He was a great man, a great trader and a geat human being. When I started pushing the vidoe there were less than 600 hits, today there is nearly 5,000. Ill keep pushing until its 50k. RIP CharlieD

  2. I have been researching Charlie for a few years. I am trading the Treasuries like him, and going off the same price action. He is a legend. If I can amount to be half the man he is, I will leave this Earth as a complete man.

  3. I knew Charlie D, because I worked at Goldberg Bros, which later became LIT, from 1982-1991 when Charlie was trading bonds. I was a phone clerk, runner, and risk manager and my job was to collect cards, monitor risk of the locals, and get money from them if they lost more than they had in their account. Charlie was one of the most thoughtful and kind traders on the floor. At Christmas one year, he gave all the back office clerks two round trip, first class tickets to Hawaii as a gift. We were 25-26 years old or so, and it felt like a million dollars at the time. He was honest, hated people who weren't ethical, and loved to trade. William Falloon interviewed me for the book, "Charlie D", and if you like this video, you'll like the book, which appears to be available on Amazon. He was one of a kind, and this video brings back incredible memories. A great and amazing guy.
