My Trading Tao Te Ching, part 6.

April 25, 2019

The Tao is called the Great Mother:

empty yet inexhaustible,

it gives birth to infinite worlds.

 

It is always present within you.

You can use it any way you want.

 

— from Tao Te Ching, by Stephen Mitchell

Opportunity in Markets is boundless. No matter the instrument, the environment, the volume, or the participants — there is always a strategy to profit. The trick for me is to be open to receiving the clues.

Next time I’m frustrated and out of synch in trading, I need to constantly remind myself that if I’m losing, then someone on the other side of my trades is winning. Therefore, there is a winning strategy available. It is right there for me to grab. There are always lessons in losing — often right before my face if I’d just open my eyes. I must learn them, and never stop learning.
