Regardless of market
Regardless of wants and desires
Regardless of “how you really really want things to be”
You only have one true edge.
Seriously. You have one edge. You have one thing that will allow you to accomplish all the things you want to.
It’s available to all of us for free. You don’t have to learn it. You don’t have to buy it.
You already have it.
It’s not knowledge. Knowledge pushes us in EXACTLY the opposite direction of the real edge. Knowledge makes us think we know more than a market. That we are smarter and faster and better than a market. I have tried. Trust me. You can not out smart the herd. I’ve wasted so much time trying. It’s sad.
So what is this edge?
Is it an entry? An exit? An indicator?
None of the above.
These give us a context and a reason to participate in a market. But they are not the edge.
Have you figured it out yet?
Ok. Fine. I’ll tell you.
It’s that simple. Time is the only true edge. In counter trend systems, time is literally your only ally. You have to be willing to have the patience of a Zen Monk.
Which we seem to gravitate to for some reason. Maybe we all just think living in pain is a good thing. I don’t know. But to really win, we have to be willing to change that.
Ok I’m going to add one thing to Time.
TIME IN PROFIT
That’s your edge. Get in profit and stay there as long as you can. Your edge is that. Enter how you want to, but in profit, stay in the trade. To do that you usually have to be on a bigger timeframe (60m or above).
Think about it this weekend. It’s a seed that you can plant in your mind and grow good things with it.
Have a great week.
