    Terry, thanks for this! Especially with the explanations on good and bad signals. I was reading on the market on Port Phillip and yours has got to be one of the best layouts and user friendly interface. Oldies like me have to easily adjust to this new technology of the internet, but I’m keeping up! Would you say Port Phillip is a good place to invest in as of the moment? Or should I wait it out a little longer.
