The movie won't make you a profitable trader....but the secret to being a profitable trader is in there. It's just another stop on the journey.

..and remember folks that it may be a long and hard journey - as long and as hard as YOU make it, that it.

It is one of the important stops on this journey.

Also quoting @PandaWarrior "Perfect Practice Prevents Piss Poor Performance"

At this point, I have completely taken over Mr. @budfox's thread with my movie nonsense.

I think perhaps we need to stand down for a while so Mr. Fox can resume his posting.

Thanks for recommending me the movie....it was a good movie, I enjoyed it (not as much as my little niece), but it was still good.

It definitely assists in the "mental preparation requried"

You may want to investigate auction market theory. This is one view of how financial markets operate. Ultimately you need to determine a set of beliefs about how markets move. Whether that be auction market theory, support/resistance, Wyckoff, whatever. How do you believe markets move? (hint: it has nothing to do with squiggly lines crossing)

What reason made you suggest auction market theory?

It's fine, no harm done. I'm not one for kids movies, even though How to Train Your Dragon helped me regain faith, I will attempt to watch kung fu panda out of respect for your trading and advice. I'll report my findings in the movie thread

This comes back to what I was trying to originally say to you about beliefs. Most new traders dive head first into the markets trying to find the best moving average cross or indicator setting to start pulling in the cash. They get so blinded by this initial search for the holy grail that they never (or only much later), start at the beginning with developing a solid understanding or belief about how markets operate.

It's like deciding you're going to become a chef but without any experience you simply try to copy the chef down the road who works at the best restaurant in town. You see he's making some really fancy signature dish that everyone loves so you try to copy the ingredients, throw everything together, and then act surprised when it tastes terrible. The other chef's signature dish is the culmination of years of experience and is grounded on his knowledge of how different foods/tastes interact with each other. Maybe a silly example,...but you get the idea.

That is why I suggested you spend a few weeks watching naked charts live and noting your observations. If you think there is nothing worth noting by watching a naked chart,....then this exercise is even more important. Look for repeating behavior and really ask yourself what the market is trying to do as it moves. What are the next few minutes of market action going to look like? What is likely/probable?

Auction market theory is just one way of looking at the markets. There are numerous others and no reason why yours cant be completely unique. The point is that without a grounding belief in why markets operate the way they do that makes sense to you,...you'll likely always be a wannabe chef throwing ingredients together hoping something good will come out.

Just my 2c. Others may disagree.

Diversification is the only free lunch
