NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Eating a bowl of humble pie is not my favorite assignment. Remembering the lessons learned from both my profitable trades and my losing ones is an instructive exercise that's worth the time.When TheStreet's Jim Cramer wrote to Real Money subscribers about an important goal of virtually all traders and investors, he didn't mince words: "Remember, the real goal for all people in this market is to make this business less of a guessing game about what the Fed will do and more of an investment business where we judge stocks by what companies say."
