and there I see her stand with the sound of rushing waters at the edge of the world. I wonder if she, her memory, is the siren song that beckons me to the end of the world, or is that she stands against my greater daemons between me and the abyss on the other side of her love. I can't tell some nights. I really can't tell.

"letting go 4 hands," " becoming the opponent," and "becoming new" I lost my head over the holidays getting too introspective and wondering where to head next. What I learned but need to practice more is remembering that sometimes the best forward looking projections come from answering the question "what am I doing today?" Consistency is key. what ever you are consistently doing will tell you where you'll be in a week, month, year, decade. I must remember that I'm like a penny stock. 90% of traders lose money and 90+% of penny stocks fail. Time to set up my business like one of these. How to distinguish myself from the other 90% is what I do daily. no more looking to next year. What am I doing today, and maybe what will that mean for tomorrow. Keep as much consistency as possible.

without volume you are striking at shadows. Without an indication of intention there will be no threat or weakness to react to. Without a pattern there is no opening for action. Without a plan or preparation to act when an opening forms then you will be overcome.

"Devotion to what is right is simple, devotion to what is wrong is complex and admits of infinite variations." -Letter CXXII Seneca The greatest struggle for me just now is developing a science, a method simple and unornate in nature. Easily repeatable and resizable to the situation. This will take much exploration and consolidation to refine.

"...understanding how news can have legs can really really really really really really help you." [spikeability disc 3 1:00:19] 'Confidence appreciates.' confidence and trust are the things that make and break negotiations and a trade is just that, a negotiation. When reviewing an instrument for trade the indicators should bring confidence (from inference ) or trust even ( confidence from prior experience). News, big investors, Good Earnings, a reliable product, price action pattern, or a promotion all seek to inspire a sense of confidence. Confidence = Value. The best indicators are the truest ones. Truth is what is left when confidence is tested and an instrument's new assertion is weighed. "Think about what is right and true." - Musashi Miyamoto many flowering penny stocks can be played, but caution should be more heavily given to instruments and times of lower truth; lower trust; or inspire lower confidence. The success is not in the flower but the Fruit. Flowers come every season and can be given freely, but fruit is arduously born and is stored up for times of need. This is how I am currently thinking of when I rate the tradability of a play.

CUT LOSSES QUICKLY comes to mind. Emotion is slower than reason. Trades happen quickly. One must train the mind to act so that one's emotions can appreciate the training and rewards. In other words, the mind only discerns and the heart appreciates. Many want appreciation without discerning harm and benefit of their actions. Coming from all this, one can see accurately enough to know how each method and approach can be utilized and modified to different sized conflicts.

"For people who want to learn my military science, there are rules for learning the Art: 1. think about what is right and true. 2. practice and cultivate the science. 3.become acquainted with the arts. 4.know the principals of the crafts. 5.understand the harm and benefit in everything. 6.learn to see everything accurately. 7. become aware of what is not obvious 8.take care even in small matters. 9.do not do anything that is useless." -musashi miyamoto As I move forward with my training in the art of Trading I keep these guiding rules in mind. currently I need to fret a little less If I'm not finding any instruments with my patterns and viable volumes. It's useless to try a method of trade I am unfamiliar with to try and get money. This early on I will wait for my patterns in a viable instrument refining my method with watching and re-watching video lessons.

Reflecting on my $CYH trade I see it could've been a swing as it held onto it's gains into the close. B/O plays that hold much of their gains and finish with strong volume can gap up the following day. Listed stocks also move slower and choppier especially with a slow catalyst like Earnings. I unfortunately learned this late for $CYH but can utilize it on my next B/O trade.
