Re: Is the Market a Battlefield for You?

A good line of thought. Seeing the market as a battlefield suggests there are two outcomes - Win / Lose. Winning means beating your opponent, i.e. in our case, everyone else, out of the prize, you win it, they don't. Is that in any way practicable? And winning can imply winining at all costs, because losing means absolute loss - i.e. death to the loser. None of this is particularly healthy.

Whereas, seeing the market as an ocean, an alien and unforgiving, landmark-less enviroment - implies you just have to survive to be a winner. Better attitude for the private trader.

'The market makers, specialists, quant’s, algo’ traders, and high frequency traders etc. are not your enemies; they are merely fellow market participants who create the patterns from which you can profit.'


It would be interesting to know if the author manages to profit from the patterns on regular bases. If so - would he be willing to share some of them.

Hi ZEN,
Get yourself a copy of Vad's book: Techniques of Tape Reading - there's a few in there!

I believe he has a room from which he trades live on a daily basis.

I watched it for a day a while back, it's not for me but he seemed to do OK.
