It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.
The steed of this Valley is pain; and if there be no pain this journey will never end.

Another great quote. I remember from Trading in the Zone that Mark talked at lenght about this in there. He talked also aboud self-sabotaging beliefs that, without realizing it, may work against you.

It seems this may be an evolution of his two prior books.

Strange, clicking the link generates a weird url into Chrome for me that then obviously fails its DNS lookup:

%3Cbr%20/%3Ehttp://amzn.to/1Pj60Kp

Just checked, it does the same into Explorer.

Yes I had problems by clicking on it too. I'm on Firefox. But you can copy the link and paste it into the browser, it will work that way.

Basically you just copy the http://amzn.to/1Pj60Kp portion.

Edit: I've just trying clicking on the one on this post - that one works

Must be getting click-happy in my old age, we all just want it too easy.

I tell you what I'm realizing to a greater extent from this book is caring much less about trading is one of the keys for me. Seems I have a point of reference now as well. Before the holidays I did some sim trading to test out pairs trading in stocks. Can't say I loved it. Bid ask spread in stocks is complete crapola. Never a market order that's for sure. Sometimes it's just ridiculously huge........lol. Because of this distaste for it I was extremely mechanical about it. But I don't have to like it for it to work and it did at least on sim. So adding it in in two weeks here once I get caught up on my levels and Excel stats.

I have developed a distaste for the stock market as well. There are people who demonstrate how the stock market is really rigged (or one could say more rigged than others).... Eric Hunsader is one of them.... he keeps publishing data on Twitter on how HFT firms can frontrun pretty much anything they want and their advantage compared to retail traders... that's one of the reasons I prefer sticking with futures (although it's not the only one).
