Hi Dr B.
there is no greatness in succesfull trading. there is greatness in life and as a person which reflects finally upon trading or whatever you do.

Good trading is boring and nothing more.

you can never compare great traders to bad ones also because trading is a state of mind that we can all achieve. thus the "great traders " somtimes fail too.
All the best

oh, and by the way, "don't shoot" also suggest moving in small steps, and then reinforcing them.

Okay, now a different viewpoint.

I think a better reference on changing habits is the book "Don't shoot the dog". I don't like the title because I don't think it indicates much about the content of the book, so let me tell you about it.

"Don't Shoot the Dog" deals with "shaping", or adopting new behaviors. The techniques are universal, as they are used by animal trainers, but can also be used with your children, your spouse, and yourself.

I just find it interesting that the same material comes out in different formats. Buy "Don't Shoot" and work on shaping yourself. It's easier to understand and cheaper.

(one other note: I have no idea why the article is against standardized testing, saying that it somehow inhibits creativity. This notion is holding back the US education establishment as it continues to focus on "creativity" rather than skill development. Think of how much more creativity you can have when you have excellent basic skills!)

Ive been following your blog for a while and must admit that some of it is over my head as that Ive been a student of the market for just under a year. I read something in one your posts that I took special note of. You said that the truly successful trader doesn't just try to find out what will happen but why it happens. I assumed you were referring to understanding how the market is interconnected. I've been trying to gather information on what I should be studying. I came across something called INTERMARKET ANAYLSIS, it describes the relationship between 4 major asset classes( stocks, bonds, commodities and currencies). I wanted to get your opinion on this topic. Is it worth persuing as a means of understanding the whys of the market or is there somewhere else I should be looking to lay a foundation for my understanding. In addition I would also like to know if this is useful for swing trading. Thanks. Eddie

Brett,

Read your blog on intraday volume patterns with great interest. Hoping you can provide a source for historic intraday price/vol data for individual stocks and major indexes.

Thanks,

Brett,

In terms of #3, couldn't that be interpretted to mean something like "know how you learn best"? For example, I am a very visual. I retain things I see at a much, much higher rate than things I hear. That being the case, I am best off reading a book rather than listening to a speaker - though I will say that taking notes while I listen helps my retention considerably because I'm making it visual.

Brett

I believe I can relate to point 4 you made about developing trading expertise.

The notion of Kaizen has been adopted by me unconsciously over the years on hindsight.

I have achieved much by doing little by little each period of my life. Most beneficial is for my brain not to atrophy and to keep my mind receptive to new learnings, which has culminated in my learning now how to trade online.

Following from this, I have embarked on a newsletter of my own called IDkit targeted at newbies.

Habits of learning will lead to endless creativity, I believe.

I have not read this yet, but it has my interest. At the link below can be found a PDF version of the CIA book "Psychology of Intelligence Analysis". I suspect that many of the lessons in the book can be applied to trading.
