I think a lot of you are missing my point here. My point is that I am not happy with just learning during the market hours, I would like to learn SOMETHING when I am not trading. The financial market has no limit, and I would like to enrich my knowledge and prepare for the future when I will undoubtly want to play on a bigger stage. It is about laying down the building blocks, and I believe they will eventually merge together and help me in my intraday trading as well. It is the thirst for knowledge, the hunger to become a complete individual. All of those fund managers who blow up, they still made more money than just about ANY intraday trader for themselve. There is no question that they are the big fish, and there is no replacement for the depth of knowledge they possess. I mean, even if you are making serious money day trading, you don't want to stop there, why stop there? You will want to do more, learn more. If there is one thing I realized this weekend, is that all of those people pursuing advanced degrees can't be wrong, and if I want to keep it up without a degree, I can not be happy with what I already know, I must read, read, and read some more to keep up. Sure, you need experience to convert paper knowledge into real usable wisdom, but if we read the manual before we operate the machine, we won't have to make every single mistake in the book, at least not as much as we would have without doing the paper work. I have confidence in intraday trading, but think about what we are doing for a second, we are taking money out of big guy's pockets, fighting for the scraps on their table. It is cool, don't get me wrong, but one day, I would like to be on a higher tier. That day won't be here any time soon, but I don't want to do JUST intraday trading for the rest of my life, I know I can do more than that. I haven't mastered intraday trading yet, but as I said, it will have to come from experience, as I haven't read any book that is really helpful for a long time. (If anyone know an intraday trading book I should read, let me know, most if are total garbage or written for newbies) I want knowledge, experience can only come from battle, knowledge can come from training, I want to train harder, because I realized how much I don't know . . .
