Picasso once said: "Art is a lie that tells the truth". I say: "The market is a truth that tells the truth, and nothing but the truth". Do you recall the many people you encountered in business meetings and in other contexts in life who are smooth enough or have political connections, and/or the control of strings to get things their way even if you now that those guys were dead wrong, but still got their way and probably received big bonuses/promotions/etc. Well all those fat cats cannot do that in trading. They have to be right to earn the money/reward. Trading is one of the few professions in which the man who is right/best gets the legitimate reward, and no one can argue about the outcome. It is black and white: you make it or you lose it. The market is "slave" only to the men who are right and patient. Above are some of the reasons I love the market and trading. It is not about the money. It is about a human lab that pays the accurate observer. Now your turn to tell me what you think, and add to /comment on what I wrote. Let me know what you think. You can be frank, and you can insult my post/views (but please do not insult people including me as people and their views are separate).
