If anyone claims he can predict the future, rest assured - he doesn't even believe it himself! Fact is nobody can see into the future, but that does not necessarily mean that it is impossible to extract impressive gains from the financial markets, no matter how irrational they may seem. Human beings seem often to be guided more by sentiment and less by reason, a factor which makes the actions of the crowd often difficult to predict. Be that as it may, a successful trader makes his living in a similar manner to a leopard in the jungle, planning his strategy and waiting patiently until the moment is opportune to strike. But when that opportunity eventually unfolds, he has to strike swiftly without second thoughts. Exactly here lies the difference between success and failure. Those who ponder are lost.
