I once created a type of diagram of investment opportunities. The most sure investments typically require less creativity and have higher certainty of return (think real estate). The more creative endeavors have much higher risk and return (think Tesla). I think trading is somewhere in the middle. Now that I think about it, I realize that traders should be more successful as a whole but probably aren't because of the low starting resources, over leverage, and lack of development.

Well, do you?

Studying COMPLETELY ABSTRACT chart patterns over a historical period...

In order to predict THE FUTURE...

If this isn't creativity then I don't know what creativity is.
