small re-vital boost for upcoming battles.
The Art of War, “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear about the result of a hundred battles (trades).” With respect to trading, the enemy is the uncertainty of the market and every trade is a battle. Knowing yourself means that you must put in the effort to classify your trading style. Are you a conservative or an aggressive trader. Is your time frame short term or long term? Do you prefer focusing on a wide array of sectors or indexes or just a few select stocks? If you study and research the market and you know your own trading style, then you need not fear the result of a hundred battles (trades). You will be able to match your trading style with the right choices. Although you will not win every battle, but your wins will out perform your losses as long as you always trade within your style.
