Be Water, My Friend

Hello Traders,

Today I am reminded of a quote from Bruce Lee …

Bruce Lee - Be Water

Bruce Lee - Be Water

“Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless – like water.  Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot.  Now water can flow or it can crash.  Be water, my friend.” – Bruce Lee

This visualization may help you in your trading.  You should not be so locked into a trade you miss the move.

As I am watching the market today, I see the market flowing down back to the pivot point on the trading day.  When you start to allow your mind to become like water – then you can be the cup, the bottle, or the teapot.

I believe this visualization of becoming like water is a great way to enter into a trading day.  Don’t be swayed one way or the other … the market will do what the market wants to do … your job is to be like water and flow with it.

The other side of the water quote is it can crash … if you are in the trade in position then occasionally it will reward you handsomely.  The market can crash up or down … it can move and surprise you with a nice win on any trading day.

If you have prepared yourself to take advantage of the move in your trading plan – then you will be prepared for any big move in the market on any given trading day.

By the way, I am still debating my next move on where I want to place my trading account.


Good Continued Trading,

David ‘Tiger’ Knight

P.S.  Another trading video … move back to the pivot point.
