#126: [VIDEO] HOW TO BUILD STRATEGIES UPSIDE DOWN

Albert Einstein was a smart man.

Not only did he come up with that whole theory of relativity thing, which was pretty good, but he made some really great quotes that us mere mortals can apply to all aspects of our lives. Here’s one I think applies nicely to trading:

“The person who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The person who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever seen before.”

To be successful in trading there’s a key aspect that simply can’t be ignored… The majority of traders fail.

So logically, if ‘the crowd’ fails, wouldn’t it make sense that to achieve success you really need to do something different to the crowd?

Yup, you don’t need to be Einstein to see it does.

And if you really want to improve your trading results by doing something new and completely out of the box, you NEED to have the ability to look at things from different angles. Because by looking from different perspectives, then you can approach ideas and problems in ways that ‘the crowd’ would not normally think of. Ways that can lead to quick and dramatic results.

So, what’s the best way to start looking at your trading from different perspectives?

I have a little technique I’d like to share with you today in a short video. Here’s what you’ll discover:

  • My secret technique for finding new and improved trading ideas FAST,

  • How this technique will immediately make your brain look at things differently,
