I got a lot of Likes for this. It might surprise you!!

  1. I got so many Likes for this in a thread with few views that I thought I'd start a thread so many more could see it.

    Dropping vowels works sometimes,..
     
  8. Is nonsensical garbage writeup allowed in ET?

  9. On the contrary, it’s a useful illustration of how we can see things that are not there.

    The opposite is also true, how can one not see things that are right in front of them.

    “The map is not the territory”

    These concepts are very useful for trading. They can explain why the many times a trader’s valid entry and position ends up exiting for a loss.

    Edit:
    Understanding what factors affects perception can be the difference that makes the difference.
