I seek not to follow the trend - because price has no trend. If you follow the trend, the trend will kill you, because it averages out by too much the risk you face and hides when that risk will come - as it must. So regardless of how you play it - you can only win what chance allows and no more - when you follow the trend (that of course is true for anything you do or can ever do trading - just that following a false measure hurts you in a special way). To see this, we look at it from a different angle, a different way of measurement and the correct way. Chaos tells me that price is a singularity - a single point bounced around by some unspecified [we can call that the market] iterative process in bounded space [lets call that range or the ever changing bounds - up or down we realize, when we trade] and fractal geometry represents it in fractured lines - fractals [I am not talking about Bill Williams here - he does not have a place in my thinking]. I elect therefore to follow price and ignore completely its illusion - the trend. You would too if you understand what I am talking about fundamentally.
