Most Important Trading Lesson Learned

“We spend so much time focusing on our ‘edge’ and eventually we move on to work in risk and positioning management. Over so many years, though, I find that the most important progress I’ve made was through working on my own behavior or psychology. A sound analysis to establish probabilities is straightforward, but our perspective and interpretations are rarely so clear cut.“

Risk is steady and the Dollar is easing back from its attempt to recover, but wonder if Oil's revived attempt on 2020's range (sans April tail) has any connection to supply disruption factor owing to Tropical Storm Isaias https://t.co/xRDkO3fQpa

We still have over 3.5 hours of trade left in the day, but at present, the $SPX's daily range is the smallest (as percentage of spot) since Feb 20. Disquieting given the broader technical pattern the index is falling within https://t.co/TmIArMxhvc

Kodak shares surged over 2,100% in the first half of last week. At present, it is down 75% from its new record high. Cryptomining and Covid vaccine production support. Look, forward to the next turn. Maybe a camera-related venture... https://t.co/7neSCnwzW8

This was not one of my top Dollar pairs to monitor for candidacy should the currency reverse, but $NZDUSD has noteworthy technicals and retail traders at IG have halved their shorts https://www.dailyfx.com/sentiment?ref-author=Kicklighter&CHID=9&QPID=917719 https://t.co/QFV3MAJkAB

To fully appreciate the weight of the 1.1700-1750 area as a technical zone for $EURUSD, it is best to look at the monthly chart. We just closed out the largest month's rally since September 2010 https://t.co/xqiTqchxlJ
