Fate? Are we doing exactly as we are meant to do?
The unquenchable thirst for improvement, Why do we want what we can't have? Is it ever as good as the fantasy?
The market does what it does. You can attempt to explain & rationalize the movements, the emotion of the day but it defies logic...
So how do you get ahead?
I guess the obvious 'answer' is to exploit the technicals. Analyze Trend, Survey Conditions, etc...
If only it was as easy as looking at a chart!
Sometimes a strategy works. Indeed a necessity, with no plan you are hapless and lost..
Trades go awry, plans get changed, conditions shuffle so quickly: On top of the clouds, next thing you know you're upside down.
You have to stay true to yourself, live for yourself, trade for yourself. Indeed the only life that matters is your own for it is the only life you know.
So you take it by the day, navigating obstacles as they come.
Sometimes you will dodge, sometimes stumble, sometimes thrive.
If you are moving forward, you are doing it right.
