Language of Markets



Hello, Trader

March 7, 2020
At Language of Markets we study how markets move by learning to map swings. They are, after all, the foundation of reading price flow. Swings are also the basis of Median Lines. Some of this month's sessions focused on their principles and utility. We touch on this In the Beauty of Median Lines. Our lessons also involved seeing what Alan Andrews saw so that we, as traders, don't blindly mimic what he did. Although swings are certainly a powerful mapping tool, they are not the only tool we can use to read price flow. We can also read and map markets with gaps. With this in mind, we expanded the lessons learned in Do It With Gaps and learned major, minor and relative gaps and the many ways to trade them. 

Meditations on the joys and tribulations of trading

The Freedom of Being Wrong
In trading, getting stopped is a fact of life. And yet, it is unquestionably one of the hardest things about trading to accept, eliciting an existential fear of being wrong. This fear shifts our focus away from what matters most in trading, which is to follow and join price, which we can only do if we can remain present and fluid. Since our experience always determines our actions, we must change our experience in order to change our actions. How do we do this? By being conscious of the aversion and then flipping it on its head and embracing the wrong, not trying to fix it or replace it with the right, just feel it. This keeps us curious and fluid and more able to align with ever-changing market conditions. It keeps us focused on price flow rather than on our fear. This is freedom, and this is how every trade is a creative act and how every trade becomes our teacher. In Learning to be Wrong, we outline a practice for using the inevitable and unavoidable fact of being wrong as new information.
