r/K Selection Theory in Trading (New Market Theory)

For many decades traders and analysts have been studying the market in the context of bull/bear or greed/fear.  However, the current proliferation of High Frequency Trading systems (EAs etc..) is challenging us to shift our paradigm from the traditional ways of analyzing the market to a more ‘scientific’ approach. A couple weeks ago I posted a blog about The Opportunistic Trader which got me…See More

Coping with Loss in Trading (INTROSPECTION)

This is a continuation of my previous blog Preparing for the Unexpected in Trading.  I did not dare include this part, because I knew most traders would have a good feeling about their trades early this week (news were coming out).  But this is end of the week and it's time for a reality check! 1)      In Sun Tzu, The Art of War, it says “every battle is won even before it is…See More

Preparing For the Unexpected in Trading

With a slew of important economic news coming out this week, most traders are optimistic and are expecting to generate profits in their account based on their trading plan and strategies. But in reality, most traders will end up losing.  This hard fact reminds me of one of Mike Tyson’s famous quotes, “Everybody has a plan ‘till they get punched in the face”, which speaks truth and volume in every aspect of life and business or trading.  Even the best strategists have to be prepared for the…See More

Ayn Rand and Trading (Why Every Trader Should Follow Her Philosophy)

.A few days ago I wrote a blog about The Naked Woman in Trading, which was an analogy of how some traders perceive the market.  However, the protagonist in the story (the implied successful trader) begins to remind me of Howard Roark, the main character in Ayn Rand’s book The Fountainhead, because both characters possess…See More

The Naked Woman in Trading

As I browse through many FX trading discussions and comments on Facebook and blogs, I begin to have an idea of the way traders judge price action in the market.  And the way they perceive opportunities in the market reminds me of the  Naked Woman story that W. Timothy Gallwey talked about in his book, The Inner Game of Tennis (by the way, good book for a trader to read). Here is the story:"Three…See More

"Dear Sundaram, You are entitled to your own opinion...just like in trading I see a buy opportunity-you see sell. Yes, I see how you can connect this story to "morality" but in essence it's a stroy about psychology (perception).…"
