I am a lad in his late twenties who is seeking to make the best out of what I have.
I am not the coolest among my peers but i certainly have something that they do not have...that is brain power ;-)
I love exploring new stuffs and never stop learning. Creativity is something i crave for and i take most of the time brainstorming in silence.
Art and Architecture is may heart beat. I may not become an artist or an architect but i am sure of implementing my daily works in an artistic way.
"Less is More" , i believe in it everyday which has been the philosophy in life.
Trading Forex is just something i added to life which i strongly believe will help me achieve my ultimate goal....... Am having fun here, are you? ;-D
Prayer by Yellow Lark
I NEED YOU
O Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds,
And whose breath gives life to the whole world,
Listen to me, I come to You
One of your many children
I need your STRENGTH and WISDOM
Let me walk among good things and let my eyes admire the Golden Sunset
Let my hands respect what you've created,
And let my ears be sharp in hearing Your Voice
Make me Wise, So that I know the lessons you have hidden in the leaf in every rock
I seek Strength not to be Superior to my brothers but to be skillful at fighting against my Greatest enemy: MYSELF
Let me be always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes so that when Life fades away like light at Sunset my spirit may come to you with shame..........

Price exists outside of time, time is just a constraint or parameter we place on it. How do you step outside of time and view the market?
A couple years ago I was studying candlestick patterns and some of the traders were "combining" candle sticks to create a certain pattern. It hit me then that patterns really have no value as you could change the time frame, or the broker time and they'd disappear. A candle/bar is just a snapshot of price.
Even after a market closes prices are moving, maybe not on a visual chart, but prices are just human sentiment. We think about our trades, the values, risk etc. after a market closes. So the value/price is always in motion.
Time frames are used to "trap" price and give us a visual of price in those moments. But is viewing the market in such a way "trapping" our view of the market, or maybe misdirecting our focus?
So how do you strip that away? Is viewing a tick chart raw price… or the tape?
I think many/most traders with any significant time invested come to realize indicators have little to no value, as they're just based on price. So many revert to naked trading, just candlesticks, but is that really as naked as it gets? Or is that just one more step in the right direction?
After you removed your indicators, removed time frames and you're just left with price is that as "naked" as it gets? And most importantly does move your closer towards profitability or an edge or improved edge?
I'm sure others have had thoughts and pursued the same line of thinking so I'm interested in your thoughts and feedback. Did it lead to anywhere?
