And if that's what you really want, you are right to do so, and you are a candidate for finding someone who can help you do so.charliechan said:but yes, there are hurdles to cross in order to get past the mechanical stages. i am not there yet myself, but every day i hope to get closer.
However, there is an underlying assumption here that trading intuitively is an ultimate good, and that one is not a "real" trader unless he does so. But there are a great many traders who do just fine without trading intuitively, or who incorporate intuition only as a "tie-breaker" when their method does not provide a clear path to follow.
So one must at some point decide just what it is that he wants. If one wants to learn to trade intuitively, then, again, he needs to find someone who can help him do so. If he couldn't care less about that but just wants to make a nice living, then he has other courses open to him. If he wants to trade mostly for fun and has no other goal than to supplement his income from other sources, then he has still other courses open to him.
There are many reasons for trading. There are many goals. There are many ways of reaching those goals. Taking the veil is only one of them.
