#108: [VIDEO] EMBRACING THE NOT KNOWING

When we first become full-time traders, we are driven by always wanting to know more.

We want to understand how the markets operate...

How our software works…

The fundamental forces behind the markets...

Algorithms…

EVERYTHING!

So, we’re constantly learning just for the sake of understating and knowing.

And in general, that’s a good thing. It’s part of the trading journey – we have to learn a lot to become successful traders.

But at a certain point in your trading career, if you truly want to become successful, you need to embrace the not knowing.

And that’s where today's’ video comes in:

Markets are like living organisms – they’re far from being easily understandable just from logic.

Embracing the “not knowing” may be just what can leverage your trading.

So, in this video you’ll discover:

  • The different forces that drive each market that you can’t ever predict,

  • How you’re postponing becoming a consistently successful trader by looking for what you can’t learn,

  • How you may be “losing money” by focusing too much on the “know-how only” type of trading,

  • And how you can balance this yin-yang of knowing and not knowing to truly accelerate your trading journey.

So, go watch the video and start embracing the not knowing. 😉

Happy trading,

Tomas
