You Must Change Your Perspective!
The View of the Crowd is just that . . . 'their' view.
That common viewpoint forms up the so-called 'consensus' view of what 'reality' is for a market at any particular point in time. Essentially, the majority of market participants (and, a large group of manipulators) get to vote on what's happening and what's 'real' in any particular market. But, . . .
What's Really Happening Out There?
To be able to discern what the masses cannot, we have to remove ourselves from the charts, time-frames and techniques of the everyday investors. Otherwise, how can we come to an objective conclusion unless we 'change our perspective' and take in the longer-view to form our conclusions?
This is equivalent to looking far down the railroad tracks to see if a train is coming or not! We can do the same with charts.
The first way we can accomplish this is to change the time frame for the price charts we're looking at. If you're an intra-day trader working the 5-minute bars, you have far too much company doing exactly the same thing. You should, instead, consider pulling outwards in Time to, at least, the Hourly level bar or candlestick charts. 3-Hours would be even better.
Plot the charts at these new and longer-time frames and step back to observe what can be seen.
As you can see with the above 5-minute vs. the 3-hour charts, the 3-hour chart gives one important information that is just not obtainable from the 5-minute perspective of the market.
This new time perspective will place you in a different place of judgment from the place that your trading competitors are making their decisions from. This is the first step in your process of discovery.
Your Next Step is to use non-conventional and unique chart analysis techniques (like those exclusive trading methods provided to our Clients).
Just as one should look at different charts than most traders do, one should analyze these charts using tools that the masses will never have access to. Successful techniques that are unknown except to a very specific and exclusive Group; a Group who have put in the effort in Time & Money to become successful at levels above and beyond those of other average traders.
Apply Risk Management to each trade one decides on and you'll have the 3-Critical Keys to finding profitable markets and exceptional trading opportunities.
I've written extensively on this topic over the years on this site and others. This is the critical common element to ALL trading successes. Do Not Let Losses Run. Take your losses earlier, not later. They never grow smaller if you need them to! You Must Manage Risk for every trade.
In order to provide a more complete trading method selection experience, I'll be consolidating most of the individual Courses over the coming weeks into Specific Application Collections (for example: A 'Simple System Secrets Collection', 'Intra-day Trader's Collection', 'Inner Secrets Collection' (Master Course), 'Complete Writings Collection', etc..).
Once this is finalized, no further individual Courses will be sold; they'll only be sold as part of an appropriate Collection or Set. This means that prices will rise considerably, thereby limiting access to these methods even more in the months or years ahead. However, as these Courses are targeted towards Professional Traders and Qualified Investors, then, this should not prove a difficulty for these groups.
Please don't e-mail me for details on the Collections as they're not finalized as yet. I'll post to this website when more details are available.
These will be the final days to purchase the separate trading Courses as, once the Collections are set up, all individual courses sales will cease. - George
First, let me express my gratitude to the readers and clients who sent me e-mails of concern and well-wishes preceding our encounter with this Category 5 monster Hurricane. Your thoughts and concerns were and are very much appreciated.
Thank you all so much.
We were most fortunate to have been spared major damage and to have our power and internet restored within a day, (if intermittently for the present).
Our thoughts and concerns rest presently with our neighboring Caribbean Islanders who have suffered great losses and also for those still in the path of this destructive storm in the days immediately ahead.
Having spent many decades slowly extracting the Laws of Nature that are at the bedrock of the Markets, it's particularly impressive when Mother Nature herself brings the lessons right to one's doorstep.
Such was the case with the monster Hurricane named IRMA which came as close to us as possible without wiping us off the island like it did to so many others in St. Thomas, Barbuda, Anguilla, Tortola, St. John and more.
The lesson of the fragility of our physical world has been driven home these last few days. Many more are about to learn that lesson as well it seems if this storm continues on it's course to the US Mainland. I was 'invited' by Mother Nature to give some deep thought to just what I may have to sacrifice and what little I could carry should evacuation become necessary. It's became a very sober and Human Moment of Contemplation of what is truly important.
What's truly valuable and what's not? Decades worth of Research notes, charts and courses? Important, yes, but, Life & Health wins out the argument as primary in importance every time. Fortunately, this time, no sacrifice was necessary for the sake of survival. But, it gives one pause over what could have been lost.
My main goal for my courses has been to gradually introduce Principles; Laws of Nature and Mathematics that apply to the Natural World as well as the Market World. It's been my intent that these Principles be learned, absorbed or understood at the most fundamental level so that a trader or investor could stand on their own where ever they found themselves and know that their skill was intact and as portable as they were. I want to pass this knowledge on to the next generation, two or three. I've been fortunate in that most of the Course Knowledge has found it's way into the hands of a few good folks scattered very thinly around the World.
Knowledge which has been well-absorbed and internalized is all we can carry with us under some extreme conditions. This very same piece of Wisdom was immortalized in Ancient days and expressed within the Latin phrase 'Omnia mea mecum porto' (All that's mine, I carry with me.).
I hope that, you also, give this phrase some thought and gain appreciation for the skills you have and the relationships you hold dear. In the end, the material things dim before these greater things.
Thank you again for your support and well-wishes. I hope to reply to all e-mails in the next day or so. - George
There's likely to be an interruption of postings, e-mail and internet services over the next days as Hurricane Irma bears down on us here on the island of St. Croix.
Anyone with an order already submitted will be given a downloadable version of their Course while awaiting for air-shipping services to resume over the next few days (hopefully). This will enable you to get started immediately while awaiting the printed version of the materials.
You should have these downloads by this afternoon. Hopefully, we'll be back online again soon.
Best wishes to you all, George
There's been a lot of talk lately about rising GOLD prices, however, my analysis indicates that we haven't quite crossed the necessary price threshold needed to enter a real Bull Market in GOLD.
The important price resistance barrier to keep our eyes on is the one at $1336.
GOLD has been in a sideways channel since March and, only broke out to the upside this last week. A lasting momentum will be confirmed with a Closing price for Spot GOLD at $1336 or Higher. - George
While others debate "What is a currency?"; Bitcoin has more-than-compensated and handsomely profited all on it's own.
Bitcoin's actions have already defined itself, just as the US Dollar is re-defining itself by going lower and lower in value.
A new upswing is in the cards for the USD/JPY forex pair.
Watch this market for confirming follow-thru to the upside.
These cyclical trends, once started, often last for a month or more if their angles of price ascent aren't too steep. This qualifies as an early entry into just such a move. Watch for the confirmations mentioned. - George
As I mentioned several times in earlier posts, the Bitcoin and Crypto-currency market is THE New 'Thing'; the place to be! Fortunes are being made today, and, this market hasn't even gotten started yet!
Fortunes are being made right now, and, this market hasn't even gotten started yet!
Yes, there is a learning curve as this is a new technology and Economy that is catching fire around the World at this very minute. But, isn't it well worth it?
