After many years of searching for the "whys" and "hows", and having missed many prime opportunities because of the need to "know" every detail ,I decided to review my trading over the last few weeks and strip it down to KISS. This for me has also become a matter of a few well placed levels,trendlines, and very obvious price action. For this I lso would like to thank Trader Dante and Wasp in particular who have always fought for absolute simplicity; apologies to others who also champion this principle who I haven't mentioned.

Ultimately these changes have led to less mental angst and consequentially freed time and energy which I have now reassigned to other creative endeavours outside of trading which i neglected for years. I am personally a lot happier in myself for "letting it all go".Those who saw my ramblings as superfluous, I can only say you were right and apologise.
Continued success to you all.
Now, now,... "a few well placed levels,trendlines, and very obvious price action. "...

Coming from the person who made most fun of all the "simple traders" out there who couldn't get a grasp of "intent", that's quite the statement. Just two months ago you were still up on that mountain looking down on us:

FW people change...they have revelations at different times and in different orders...and I suspect mr m has had one of these revelations of a different kind...quite unrelated to trading perhaps.....and after further introspection, it's possible that this has lead to a change in the way he operates his trading activities.

Then again I could be way off base !

You on the other hand seem to think all of this is about competing against each other...points scoring.

Try focussing on competing in the market...and not against others here at T2W.

Yeah -one has to wonder- if you know you'll have the teacher's answers page for every upcoming exam, why the hell change your approach and spent time studying the charts, sorry books

The 1 minute looks even more scary. How anyone can trade this with tight stops, is beyond me.

I don't compete nor fight in the market, I jump along the train that offers me the fastest ride to my destination, without having to pay first class price.

It's all in the mind c_v, it's not about points scoring. You're on about "flexible thinking...marry nothing!" but you're blind for any other approach or method...

Plenty of irony in this thread.

Bingo .....there is only One correct approach and method....my method I own it...everything else is just plain wrong.

Plenty of irony in this thread.
