When it comes to ultimate trading system; everyone are interested to know about. Obviously it is one of the curious topic discussed form centuries. Everything started form plotting “X” and “O” on cigarette packs or placing candles on a sand table. Technical Analysis grew as an industry without even realizing.
We have witnessed many things in these times Black–Scholes, quant, expert system, cutting edge software’s, back testing and dozens & dozens of indicators. Let me come again, where are we today. A time we are bombarded too many techniques, models, strategies and methods. Few sold over courses and coaching’s few are shown on YouTube few kept hush-hush. Ultimately, today we leave in a world where we have too many techniques to follow too many indicators been invented few paid, few unpaid, few reliable and few aren’t.
After spending centuries of time, and spending huge amount of money. What we have found? Is it an ultimate trading system? The answer is no and we won’t find it until we understand the simplest things of stock market. That’s volatility, price and volume; all these are the basic pillars of technical analysis. Any indicators, trends, patterns follow these basic principles of markets.
Stock market is not a Pandora box it’s a simple demand and supply. There is nothing called as high profitability trading technique, every system have its own risk. Risk and reward are the basic inherent variables of any trade using a system. Remember, every system have certain risk even a risk free model such as Black–Scholes model also had a risk with it. Ultimately we are left with models which can be applied the only thing that you have to know is when to apply.
I love Kung-fu Panda, the most loved part in that movie is “nothing”. The soup-noodles isn't made up of a special ingredient nor there is any special description about martial arts on dragon scroll. Similarly we have left out with nothing in stock market. I have literally seen peoples who make money only using candle sticks and moving averages. And they are doing well, I regularly hear about a marwadi in Bangalore who use manual tools for predicting market. And that man is well-known for accuracy. How did he do that? It is nothing but shear dedication towards market.
This Sunday I was able to interact with an interesting man he is very close to Indian army. He told “Any army in the world have an average IQ. It isn’t an IQ that make that difference, it the discipline”. Larry Berman told something similar “I am a technical analyst; I have people to punch my orders”. Guys, any bullshit can make money out of market and we have good examples for that: Turtles, Million Dollar Traders (documentary) and many more. In an official blog of Rakesh Junjunwala described “people laughed at me when I told I want to be in stock market”(When Rakesh took a decision to start trading in his college days).
Coming again, we have nothing called as high profitability trading. If there is so than its you. And only you.
