bumped +++

please remember to vote ONCE only.

this implies that you should not repeatedly pick any one specific choice and submit more than once.... (i didn't think i need to specify this out clearly... but i thought wrong !!! )

I have checked. There is no problem with the votes.
1. Always wait for the setup. NO SETUP; NO TRADE

2. The trend will END but I don't know WHEN.

There is no repeated votes.

Rather, there is one user that has only vote for 1 of the options rather than vote for 7.

Cherry : regarding your PM box, i have sorted this out with admin and we both have determined that it is your PM box that is not working properly.. it is very likely that you have max out your 150 messages allowed. if you do not delete some messages, all your incoming PMs will be blocked... also, ensure that your Outbox contains less than 150 messages...
