You cannot think and act like a retail trader and expect Smart-Money’s result.
Don’t misconstrue “Thinking differently” is thinking outside the box. No! This means thinking inside Smart-money’s box, means thinking within their business model, laid-down rule-set.
Like i said in one of my articles, you have to see trading from the standpoint of the market maker; you just gotta see it through the eyes of Smart- Money.
This market is about them. They create liquidity at the interbank, move the market when they are done accumulating offerings or bids. But how do you figure out what’s in the offing? This is where you really have to get down to the real rules of the game and these rules are not in-print as this is found engraved and deeply seated within Human psychology (thoughts, perception, doubt, fear, hope, greed).
But there is hope in great despair as these rules are laid bare only to the trained mind and eyes using a combination of intricacies of technicalities on the charts and interpretation of the “fundamentals” accurately.
I must tell you the truth, you will definietly have your job cut out for you, i ain’t gonna lie about it as mastery of this skills come with years of practice.
A grave mistake retail traders make is, they try to predict the market while Smart-Money knows exactly how the herd (retail community) thinks and they take advantage of their ineffectiveness.
The Forex market is a shark infested waters, populated by the most vicious of Great-White, sensitive to the most infinitesimal drop of blood by the retail community. The drop of blood signifies the retail trader’s goofs.
Train your eyes and your mind especially as a retail trader in order to adapt to the dynamics of the Forex market.
This is what the character, Mr. Green, played by Jason Statham said in the movie, “The Revolver”
“IN EVERY GAME AND CON, THERE IS ALWAYS AN OPPONENT AND THERE IS ALWAYS A VICTIM. THE TRICK IS TO KNOW WHEN YOU ARE THE LATTER, SO YOU CAN BECOME THE FORMER”.
