It is with utter astonishment that I read so many of these threads. The number of poor souls who still look for fail-safe methods/systems is frightening! Earlier today I read not one but multiple posts convinced that several well known writers were âholding backâ. Not telling all. My dear friends allow me to put your minds at ease. Trading is a matter of skill, based on common sense and little more. There are no secrets or methods. It is boring and repetitious. It requires no great intellect, but unbending discipline. It has more to do with accepting and understanding probability, than mastering stock selection, or research. And above all else, it has to do with mastering yourself.
