even Dan Marino or John Elway or even Joe Montana. seriously,a great trader is like a great quarterback,he can survey the field and see things no one else does and is able to act quickly. its intuition. thats waht a great trader has. whenever someone asks me what it takes to be a great trader,i always use the quarterback comparison. by the way,i am a good trader but not great. i am just trying to make a point because so many people ask about strategy and so forth. good trading will never come from a book or a dvd. just like Peyton Manning did'nt become a good quarterback by watching dvd's or reading a book about Joe Namath or Terry Bradshaw. there are hundreds of good quarterbacks in high school and college but only a few can make the pro's and do it for a living.
