Hi Michael, I’m very new. I’m high IQ and high ADD, so my mind jumps all over the place, constantly. So it’s hard to find a good starting point and to stick with it long enough to see it through to the end. I’ve been devoted to trading in cryptocurrencies since February and I still don’t feel like I… well, I know I don’t have a solid enough grasp of a trading system to do well; story of my life. I’m reading your The Complete TurtleTrader, I’m really going to put a concerted effort into getting through it all. I’m excited to read that Richard developed his style from his love of psychology, because that’s my favorite subject. I’m often thinking about what’s going on in the minds of the people (and bots programmed to serve the commands of people) who are moving the candles on the chart… it’s quite challenging to keep in mind, the different personality types, motives, etc. I know I can get a handle on this, I’m just trying to be patient with myself, even as the market moves without me in it, for the moment.
Candles and personalities? Why is that important for trend following?
